Recent MSU grad Bryant Bagshaw set to start pro baseball career

IDAHO FALLS, Idaho – Earlier this month Minot State senior pitcher Bryant Bagshaw was leading the way on the mound for the Beavers.

Now he is set to start his career at the next level as Bagshaw signed a free agent contract to play professional baseball in the Pioneer Baseball League with the Idaho Falls Chukars.

The Pioneer Baseball League is an independent league that is a professional partner to Major League Baseball with teams in Idaho, Montana, Utah, and Colorado. Last season, the Chukars went 48-48 overall in PBL play.

The Chukars (1-1 overall) opened their 2023 season on Tuesday with an 8-6 win on the road against in-state rival the Boise Hawks. The Chukars make their home debut hosting the Hawks on Friday.

Bagshaw, a product of Lake Havasu, Arizona played two seasons at Minot State where he compiled a 6-3 career record in 15 games with a 5.80 ERA in 66 2/3 innings, and he struck out 68 opposing hitters. He has yet to make his professional debut on the mound for the Chukars.

Bagshaw graduated earlier this month from Minot State with his bachelor’s degree in biology.
