FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
COLUMBUS, GEORGIA, MAY 11, 2017— Calvary Christian School (CCS) is pleased to announce senior Nick Baker, has signed a letter of intent to play baseball at Central Alabama Community College. The signing took place in the lobby of the CCS gym on Wednesday, May 10, 2017, with family, friends, CCS coaches, baseball teammates, and school staff present.
Nick has been at the top of our rotation and in the middle of our lineup for three seasons, having provided consistent excellent production from both spots. His 24 wins and 163 strikeouts in 2+ seasons are school records and reflect his dominance as pitcher during his high school career. Offensively, each year he has improved his approach, culminating into his senior year where he is currently batting .519. As a baseball program we are excited to see Nick get one step closer in achieving his goal of playing college baseball, as he signs with Central Alabama Community College. I have had the opportunity to see Nick grow as a young man both on and off the field, which as a coaching staff is most rewarding to see. I am excited to see how God will continue to work in and through Nick as he leaves Calvary. As we enter the postseason for the fourth straight season, we will be looking for Nick and our other three seniors to lead us to a State Championship!” – Calvary Christian School Baseball Coach Steve Smith
