For the Powell brothers baseball has been a part of their lives since they were little.

"Everybody in our family grows up playing baseball. It's just one of those things right when you can walk you put a baseball in your hands,” said Tucker Powell, a baseball player at Spring Hill College.

"When I was a little kid, barely could walk, my father coached at South Alabama and while he was there you got to hang out with all the college guys, you got to go in the locker room, take bp with them and all that. It was something special,” said Landon Powell, a baseball player at Spring Hill College.

Another thing that has always been constant in their lives is each other.

They are twins.

Landon is a catcher for Spring Hill College and Tucker is a pitcher for the Badgers.

For these twins everything is a competition.

"In baseball or even school if he makes a point better than me on a test it’s like ah I got to do a little better than him,” said Tucker.

When I say everything, I mean everything.

"We eat way too fast because if you could get seconds me and tucker the person who could get seconds was the person who finished first. So, everything we do was competitive, even eating,” said Landon.

They always push each other to be their best.

"When you go out and compete he's your teammate but when you step off this baseball field, he's your brother and you help him, and you do anything he'd want for him, so he pushes me and I push him really well,” said Tucker.

At the end of the day no matter what they will always have each other’s back.

"I think having a twin is what made me, me and what made Tucker himself. Just having a forever friend someone that is there for you no matter what,” said Landon.
