Huntington College head baseball coach Mike Frame has announced the signing of two more players for next year's squad, Mark Miller of Crestview, Ohio and Korey Grow of Sullivan, Indiana.
Miller, a pitcher and outfielder for Crestview High School, will join the Forester program as a freshman this fall. As a junior the right hander went 6-1 with a 0.55 earned run average. This spring he is 6-2 with a 0.67 earned run average. In 52 and 2/3rds innings pitched, he has 65 strikeouts. Miller has also thrown two no hitters this spring. At the plate Miller is hitting .316 with two homeruns and 22 RBI.
“We are very excited that Mark has chosen to attend Huntington,” says head baseball coach Mike Frame. “Crestview has a fine baseball program and Mark will have the opportunity to help us on the mound and in the outfield. He works very hard and has had a fine high school career. We feel like his best days are ahead of him on the baseball field. We are excited to add such a fine young man to our program.”
Mark is the son of Nick and Lisa Miller of Convoy, OH.
Korey Grow has committed to transfer from Evansville University to play baseball at Huntington this fall. During his senior year at Sullivan High School, Grow hit .466 with 14 home runs and 38 RBI. Grow was named All-State both his junior and senior years and was named Honorable Mention All-State as a sophomore. In 2004, Grow was named as the Indiana High School Junior Offensive Player of the Year. In that year, Grow became one of only three players in Sullivan High School history to hit over .500. He graduated from Sullivan with a .429 career batting average and holds seven single season or career hitting records.
“We are tremendously excited that Korey has chosen to transfer to Huntington,” stated Coach Frame. “He is a truly outstanding offensive player and will make a huge impact for us right away in the outfield. He has all the things you want in a player. He is aggressive, athletic, works extremely hard, and hates to lose. He is also a very good student and a young man of very high character and integrity. He enjoyed a great high school career and played on one of the best summer programs in the country, the Indiana Bulls.”
Korey is the son of Craig and Carla Grow of Sullivan, IN.
