COLUMBUS, Ga. – Columbus State head baseball Coach Greg Appleton announced another signee to the 2011 recruiting class on Thursday. Stuart Shaw from Grayson, Georgia is the latest addition to the already talented group.
Shaw is a junior college transfer that played his first two seasons of collegiate baseball at Lawson State Community College in Birmingham, Alabama. This past season Shaw was dominant as the sophomore went 7-3 with a 1.99 earned run average. In 51 1/3 innings pitched, he struck out 47 batters and only issued 11 walks.
In addition to his fine play, Shaw showed leadership skills as he was Lawson State's first team captain to lead his team to a winning record.
