Akron Ballplayers Help B-W Baseball Team

Yesterday’s Akron Beacon Journal reported that “seven former area high school baseball players are contributing to the Baldwin-Wallace college team for the 2006 season.”

They are: Kevin Brown and J.D. Fullerton, both of Cuyahoga Falls; Brandon Fredericks of Revere; Nick Haught of Walsh Jesuit; Shaun Slater of Norwayne; Zach Hoffman of Crestwood and Steve Miller of CVCA.

Brown, an Academic All-OAC and Academic All–District IV second baseman, is off to a great start in his senior season. He leads the team with a .421 batting average and a .564 on-base percentage. Fullerton, a junior pitcher, is 1–0 in four appearances as a long reliever. Slater, last year’s Outstanding Freshman, is hitting .333 with nine RBIs in 11 games as an outfielder and designated hitter.

Miller is a sophomore pitcher who transferred to B-W from West Palm Beach (Fla.) Community College, and Hoffman is a sophomore third baseman. Haught, a catcher, and Fredericks, a pitcher, are both promising freshmen who made the varsity roster for the Yellow Jackets’ spring trip to Fort Myers, Fla.
