Luken baker gatorade baseball player of the year interview
Baker attended Oak Ridge High School in Conroe, Texas. In July 2014, he won the Junior Home Run Derby at Target Field. He later won the Home Run Derby at the Under Armour All-American Game. As a senior, Baker was named the Gatorade Baseball Player of the Year.
Baker was considered an early round prospect for the 2015 Major League Baseball Draft, however he sent an email to major league teams telling them that he would not sign and would instead attend Texas Christian University (TCU) to play college baseball. The Houston Astros still selected him in the 37th round that same year, and he did not sign, enrolling at TCU.
