MOREHEAD, Ky. - Morehead State Head Baseball Coach Mike McGuire has announced the addition of three student-athletes, Seth Boyle, Luke Humphreys and Dylan Ramage, who will join the program for the 2014 season.
"I am very excited to add these three young men to our program," McGuire said. "In addition to their baseball ability, all three are very good students. We've added three arms to our staff that have a chance to help us right away, while also adding more infield depth and athleticism."
Boyle comes to MSU from Greenup County High School (Ky.), where he finished his senior season with a .487 batting average and 1.34 ERA over 66.2 innings on the mound. He was named Third-Team All-State following his senior season, and was selected to play in the East vs. West All-Star Game as well as the 16th Region All-Area Team in each of his final two years.
"Seth has a good arm and pitches in the upper 80's with a good breaking ball," McGuire said. "He is also a very accomplished hitter who can play multiple spots throughout the infield."
Humphreys played his prep ball at Dickson County High School (Tenn.), where he posted a 2.24 ERA and .348 batting average over his final season. On the mound, he struck out 90 batters in only 56 innings, and tossed one no-hitter on the season to earn an All-District Team selection.
"Luke is an athletic right-handed pitcher and infielder," McGuire continued. "He is a good competitor who goes right after hitters, and also plays a very good middle infield. We really like his athleticism, as he was a three-sport star in high school."
A native of Superior, Wis., Ramage comes to MSU from Southeastern Community College (Iowa). He registered a 2-0 record, three saves and 1.38 ERA during the 2012 season with the Blackhawks. Ramage was named Second-Team NJCAA Region XI Academic All-Region following his freshman year. His father Rob was a 15-year veteran of the National Hockey League, where he was named to four All-Star teams and won two Stanley Cups.
"Dylan is a sidewinder who will provide us a different look out of the bullpen," McGuire said. "Dylan is a good competitor, hard worker and fills up the strike zone. He should add experience to our bullpen."
