Braden Looper pitched in the major leagues for 12 seasons, spending time with the St. Louis Cardinals, Florida Marlins, New York Mets and Milwaukee Brewers between 1998-2009.

He won two World Series rings and played every role a pitcher can play during his career: starter, middle reliever, closer.

Looper is bringing his experience and vast knowledge of the game to the Lincoln-Way East coaching staff as the Griffins’ pitching coach, and East head coach Eric Brauer couldn’t be more thrilled.
