Owl Access –

           Right fielder David Miranda returns for his senior season hoping to show that MLB scouts missed out on him last year.

A little more than six months later Miranda, 22, is more excited than ever to be back with his teammates at Florida Atlantic.

“I’m kind of glad that it didn’t work out, just because I wouldn’t trade these guys for anything,” Miranda said.

The Owls start their season this Friday against George Washington, after finishing off the 2017 season losing to Rice in the Conference USA Championship and missing the NCAA tournament for the first time in three seasons.

“I don’t want to lose a single game,” Miranda said.

Congratulations to @davidmiranda_5 for getting drafted by the @Mets! He led Trombly Baseball to 2 National Championships when he was in HS and went on to have a great college career at FJC and @FAU_Baseball. I can’t wait to see him play professional baseball now.
