Baseball Announces 2015 Recrutiting Class


Head baseball coach Eric Hallenbeck has announced his 2015 recruiting class. Seventeen incoming freshmen will have roster spots and a handful of walk-ons will try out as the Lakers open up fall practice this Friday. Coach Hallenbeck focused primarily on pitching, outfield and the third base position. “We brought in thirteen new arms, a couple of athletic outfielders and four potential corner guys. Last year we lacked pitching depth, lost two starting outfielders, one to graduation and one didn’t return. The third base position was a big weakness for us last year. The fielding percentage at third was around .750 so we really had to address that issue, hopefully we did," said Hallenbeck. “With the freshmen and the players returning this should be an interesting year for us. We are all anxious to get started." added Hallenbeck. The Lakers open up their fall scrimmage schedule at Home on Sunday September 7th at 10am.
