Eastern Illinois Preview
« on: February 11, 2019, 07:12:58 pm »

Not much but all I could find. Found this at College Baseball Daily.

Eastern Illinois (2018 Record: 23-31, 12-18)
It was a decent season for Eastern Illinois as they finished eighth in the OVC, which earned them a play-in game into the OVR Tournament, but they lost to Murray State.
Returning Players
First baseman Hunter Morris is back after hitting .326 last year with 40 runs scored, 11 home runs, and 55 RBI. Second baseman Jimmy Govern led the team with a .331 average last year to go along with 43 runs scored, 12 doubles, 7 home runs, and 38 RBI. Catcher Ryan Knernschield should be back as well.
Tyler Jones will be back to try and lead the pitching staff after posting a 3.52 ERA in 69 innings pitched with 54 strikeouts.
Newcomers
Freshman Trey Sweeney has a chance to earn some playing time right away at shortstop, while transfers Mike YaSenka-Juco and Foster Anschutz will try to add some depth to the pitching staff.
Outlook for 2019
“We hope to be a more well-rounded team offensively than we have been in the past. We have much more athleticism, which is going to improve our defense. We will also have a much deeper pitching staff.” – Head Coach Jason Anderson

Yeah, he will be the "catcher" as in "the catcher is up to bat".
