WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.- The Palm Beach Atlantic University baseball team is set to kick off their 2011 season this week but they are already looking to add talent for the 2012 season. Head Coach Gary Carter and his staff announced the signing of Matt Wisniewski to a national letter of intent during the early signing period. Wisniewski is the first member of the 2011 recruiting class for the Sailfish.
“Matt is a tremendous addition to the PBA family,” said assistant coach and recruiting coordinator Ryan Holmes.
“In addition to being a great player he is also a standout performer in the classroom. He has the abilities we are looking for in a student-athlete and expect him to be an impact player early in his collegiate career. He brings a powerful bat from the left side of the plate which we were looking for.”
Wisniewski is a 6’1” outfielder from Deltona, Florida who helped lead Trinity Christian to the state championship last season as a junior. He was named to the All-State 3rd-Team as a sophomore in 2009 and was an All-Area 2nd-Team selection in 2010. In leading the Trinity Christian Eagles to a state championship, he hit .432 with 10 homeruns, 13 doubles, 41 RBI, and had an on base percentage of .574.
Wisniewski choose PBA over Stetson, UCF, Miami, Purdue, Virginia, and Texas Tech because of the small school Christian atmosphere and the ability to play for Coach Carter.
