Lewis baseball signs 7 players, gets more athletic

ROMEOVILLE – Lewis University baseball coach Tim McDonough announced that catcher/first baseman Angelo Cantelo (Marian Catholic), pitcher Jake Huisman (Glenbard East), pitcher Jacob Karaba (Neuqua Valley), shortstop Patrick Keaty (South Elgin), outfielder Joe Pruesser (South Suburban), pitcher Jake Schwartz (Lake Zurich) and outfielder Zach Teegen (McHenry Community) will join the Flyers in the 2020 season.

“These seven young men all have bright futures ahead them,” McDonough said.  “We wanted to continue to get more athletic, more physical and continue to get left-handed from an offensive standpoint, and we were able to accomplish that with this group.  We also needed to bring in arms that have upside and the ability to come in on Day 1 and make an impact and were able to that as well.”
