The 6’4 Pennsylvania native came to Alabama with hopes of walking on the baseball team last year. That didn’t happen, however he did get himself on Alabama head coach Mitch Gaspard’s radar.
Fortunately for Oczypok, that paid off when Gaspard heard of an opening on a summer league team in Illinois last summer. He passed along Oczypok’s name, and from there Oczypok’s dream of playing for the Crimson Tide that had seemed slightly out of reach after a year of not making the team started to slowly become a reality.
