ORIGINALLY WRITTEN STAFF
With several recruits already signed and on the way, Gary Myers, head baseball coach at Tabor College, is already looking forward to next spring.
“I am very impressed with this recruiting class and expect our team to be much improved,” said Myers. “Having five players who are transfer students to go along with a good group of returning players will bring more experience and leadership to our program. I am also pleased to have six pitchers among the recruits.”
One member of that list is Gerald Goodale, from Thompson Valley High School in Loveland, Colo. The 6-2, 180-pound pitcher and outfielder posted a 2-1 record as a senior and defeated the eventual 5A state champions.
Joining Goodale will be Adam Gilbert, a Royse City High School (Texas) graduate. Gilbert is a 5-8, 145-pound left-handed pitcher and outfielder.
Also signing a letter of intent is Tyson Grimmett, a transfer from Kansas Wesleyan University in Salina. At 5-9 and 140 pounds, Grimmett is a Marion product who Myers expects will see action for the Bluejays at catcher this season.
Jess Tracy, a 5-11, 190-pound transfer from North Idaho College, earned first team all-conference honors while in high school as a shortstop and first baseman.
New players at Tabor this fall will be: Graig Carlson, a junior from Clay Center; sophomores Justin Denning, Central City, Neb., Grimmett, Marsh and Tracy; freshmen Travis Davis, Wichita, Andy Duncan, Rockwall, Texas, Goodale, Chris Hill, Dallas, Texas, Evan McGuyer, Charleston, Ark., J.R. Mendoza, Phillipsburg, Andy Strecker, Ellinwood, and Todd Trullinger, Oxford.
