Filed under: DBU,Sports |

Head Baseball Coach Dan Heefner announced the signing of three more student-athletes to National Letters of Intent during the NCAA Early Signing Period. Joseph Shaw, Caulin Cragle and Mike Weselowski are all set to join the Patriots in the fall of 2012.

Joseph Shaw
RHP
Ennis, TX
6’5, 200

Joseph will come to Dallas Baptist next fall after earning three letters for head coach Kevin Kalinec. Shaw was rated the 13th best high school prospect in the state of Texas this fall by Perfect Game. During the summers, Shaw competes with the DBat organization.

“Joseph is a very talented young man,” said Heefner. “He has really come on recently and has a very bright future. We are excited to have him here at DBU. He has received quite a bit of interest from professional teams. We feel with development over the next three years that he has the potential to be a very high draft pick. We expect him to have an immediate impact on our program.”

Mike Wesolowski
INF
Mesa, AZ
6’3, 195

Wesolowski is the second of two junior college signees for the Patriots this fall. He is originally from Mesa’s Skyline High School where he was Honorable Mention All-American during his senior campaign. He will come to DBU next fall from Mesa College where he has spent two years as a starter for Tony Cirelli. In the spring of 2011 Mike finished 5th in the Arizona Community College Athletic Conference in hitting with a .405 batting average. He had 81 hits, 44 RBI, and 13 stolen bases in the wood bat league. For his efforts, he was a Junior College All-American selection.

“Mike is a good all around baseball player and has always hit,” said Heefner. “He has great athletic ability and will continue to develop. We are pleased that he has chosen DBU and we expect great things from Mike.”

Caulin Cragle
RHP
Houston, TX
5’10, 180

Cragle will come to DBU from Fort Bend Baptist Academy after spending the last three years at Westbury Christian High School. Cragle was a two time letter winner at Westbury before transfering this summer to FBBA. During the summer, Cragle competes for the Columbia Angels organization.

Heefner said, “We are excited to have Caulin coming to DBU next fall. When we saw him this summer he had a good three pitch mix with good life on his fastball. His mound presence was above average as he is a very mature young man. We felt early on that he would be a great fit here at DBU and his baseball talents were definitely what we are looking for. We welcome him and his family to our program.”
