Brian “Butta” Essen

“Butta” has been playing with the Buckeyes since 2004, and served as Captain from 2008-2020.  Known for his squeaky post game speeches and impossible ability to strike out, Mr. Essen is the beloved butt of many jokes.  He also never hits to right field, and at first base is questionable at best.
