The Hendrix College baseball team in Conway, Ark., will have two new members on its team from Crawford County when the 2020-21 season starts.

Bobby Fowler of English, who attended Highlands Latin School in Louisville, has committed with Hendrix and will join up with his brother, John Henry, who is transferring from Kenyon College in Ohio.

Bobby Fowler, a right-handed, 6-foot-7, 220-pound pitcher, had a stellar career at Highlands Latin School, winning 19 games and losing four, striking out 206 batters in 112-1/3 innings pitched with an earned-run average of 3.85. Fowler could also swing a bat, tallying 99 hits in 236 at-bats for a .416 average. He drove in 84 runs and scored 76 times. He helped lead the Highlanders to four straight state championship titles in the Kentucky Christian Athletic Association.

In 2019, Fowler was named the KCAA Most Valuable Player. In his junior and senior years, he was named to the KCAA All-State teams. Also in 2019, Fowler was chosen for the 2019 Omaha National World Series for high school players across the United States. He was also named a Junior All-American from Indiana by Game Day USA.

Fowler’s brother, John Henry, is a 6-foot-2, 220-pound pitcher and infielder who will join the team as a junior.

Both Fowlers received academic scholarships and also Hendrix College grant awards. Their summer season will be comprised of playing in the Commonwealth College Baseball League in Lexington, Ky. Last season, Hendrix College won 30 games while losing 14. Hendrix also won the regular season championship in the Southern Athletic Association.

“Bobby Fowler and his family would like to extend special thanks to all of the local coaches who helped him through the years as well as the long-time support of Small Brothers Truck and Auto Repair in Carefree,” the Fowlers said in a statement.
