WASHINGTON, D.C. – Former Harvard baseball standout and current Milwaukee Brewers pitcher, Brent Suter '12, has more on his mind than baseball. The 2012 Harvard graduate was recently featured in the Washington Post for his efforts in environmental preservation.

The article details the pitcher's environmental advocacy campaign, "Strike Out Waste," that he created following an elbow injury that required Tommy John surgery in 2018. While rehabbing the injury, Suter had more time to follow his passion, having earned a degree in environmental science and engineering from the John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences.

"Spreading awareness is the best thing this campaign can do," he said. "It gets people to look outside their daily lives and look at the planet. It's the first step of hopefully many campaigns."
