"We are very excited that Luke has decided to continue his education and play baseball at HC," says Frame. We feel like Luke is going to be an outstanding college player. He will work behind the plate and we may experiment with him as a position player as well. He will add some needed offensive to our line up. We are excited to have him be a part of Forester Baseball."
