Anderson University Baseball

Dear Trojan Army, 

Greetings from Anderson University Baseball!  On behalf of our Trojans, I would like to thank you for supporting our mission of providing an exceptional academic and athletic experience for our student-athletes.

As the Baseball coach, your generosity ensures that each student-athlete can have fun, explore their faith, form relationships, and build accountability within their teams.  Additionally, Anderson University Athletics continually leads the South Atlantic Conference in academic standing and set a school record in cumulative GPA for all of our teams this past academic year!

Gifts to the Trojan Athletic Fund and Baseball has supported us as we won eight of our first ten games, including an upset of then eight-ranked North Greenville in mid-February. Lucas Smith earned back-to-back SAC Pitcher of the Week honors and was named NCBWA Southeast Region Pitcher of the Week. 

Anderson University Baseball thanks you and we look forward to seeing you at our games soon!

Go Trojans!
