Akin (b. 1977) was a first round pick (12th overall) by the Marlins in the 1997 June Amateur Draft out of Cowley County Community College. It sounds like an obscure community college, but they boast former players like Trevor Rosenthal, Travis Hafner and Junior Spivey.
Akin played in the minors from 1997 to 2000, reaching High-A ball. He had a record of 9-20 with 152 strike outs and a 4.42 ERA. He went on to play 2 seasons in independent ball where he went 0-7 with a 6.18 ERA.
I mailed to Akin on November 18 and got the cards back on December 2, for a 14-day TAT.
