NATTY DADDY BRADY O'NEIL
Brady O'Neil was a member of the 2018 Muhlenberg County Stallions. He came to Muhlenberg for the summer from the University of South Carolina - Aiken. Brady had a solid summer that was highlighted by one of the most unreal baseball games that I have ever seen. The Stallions played the Fulton Railroaders in the first game of a doubleheader on July 5, 2018. Fulton scored 8 runs in the first, 6 in the second, and 4 in the third to take a commanding 18-0 lead. The most impressive feat in the first three innings came from Tyler McCown of Fulton. In the top of the first, Tyler singled in his first at bat of the game. Later in the same inning, Tyler hit a 2 run double. In the top of the second, he hit a 3 run homerun. Then in the top of the third, Tyler hit a 2 run triple to complete the cycle in 4 at bats over 3 innings.
The Stallions came back scoring 11 in the fourth, 5 in the fifth and 2 in the sixth. Brady O'Neil came up to the plate with 2 outs in the last inning with the bases loaded and the Stallions down 20-19. Brady lined the first pitch he saw into left field to score Jack Ockerman and Jake Morris to win the game.
Brady since transferred to Salisbury University. On June 8, 2021, Salisbury won their 14th consecutive game to win the NCAA DIII National Championship.
WHERE IS MAX HALL NOW
Max Hall came to the Stallions in the summer of 2016. He is from Letcher County, Kentucky and was a member of the University of Pikeville baseball team. While with the Stallions, Max made the OVL All-Star team and pitched significant innings in the Stallions inaugural season.
When asked about his time in Muhlenberg County, Max said "Being in Muhlenberg was one of the best summers of my life! I made lifelong friends, played quality baseball, gained a home away from home, and my host family became family." He also said that the time spent with his teammates and host family gave him memories that he will never forget. He is currently working in the financial department at Pikeville Medical Center and will get married this September.
WHERE IS AUSTIN TOTH NOW
Austin Toth, a native of South Bend, Indiana, was a member of the Stallions organization in 2017. Austin played baseball at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff. During his season with the Stallions, Austin played second base and notched 2 appearances on the mound. His summer host family was Beth Luckett and Eric King. Beth is the mother of Noah Phillilps, who is currently on the 2021 Stallions roster. He had this to say about his time with Beth and Eric while with the Stallions, "While enjoying a summer in Muhlenberg, I created a second family. Our job is to provide your family and town some fun baseball to watch and only ask for a roof over our head and a bed to sleep in. Other than that, players take care of themselves unless the host family wants to provide some meals and all that. I'll never forget my time in Muhlenberg, Beth, or Eric.
We were able to recently catch up to Austin. He has graduated from the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff with two bachelor degrees (Accounting, General Studies). He is currently studying to become a CPA and working at PricewaterhouseCoopers. He is currently living in Wisconsin
