Albertus Vaut Barber IV’s baseball journey has been nothing short of a roller-coaster. From injuries to a rather nauseous Driveline bullpen session to janitorial duties to a whole lot of soul-crushing, the right-hander has plenty of stories to share from his time thus far in the Philadelphia Phillies organization.

Barber joined Ty Daubert and Nathan Ackerman on the latest episode of the Phillies Nation Podcast to share those stories and talk about what drives him (pun intended) throughout his baseball career.
