Alabama Slugger Signs With Baseball Cards

Nice pickup for the University of Louisville baseball team.

That being Ronald Seiz, a 6-foot-3, 200-pound catcher from Christopher Dock High School in Montgomery, Alabama. As a switch-hitter last season, he batted .456 with Dock, including 26 hits, half of them for home runs. He also drove in 36 runs and was walked 21 times.

He told the Montgomery News:

“I think Louisville was the best choice for me because they have a really good baseball program and the coaches there—I just really love them,” said Seiz, a 6-foot-3, 200-pound switch-hitter. “I’m happy I made the decision that I did.

“I just knew that I wanted to go the first time I stepped foot on the campus,” added Seiz, who was also recruited by James Madison, University of North Carolina, East Carolina University, Auburn and Texas Christian University. “It was just really exciting to go there.”

A big draw for Seiz was the fact that Louisville is a college town.

“It was a lot different,” said Seiz of the atmosphere. “It’s really laid back and that’s what I love, but they’re really high-energy about their sports out there. It’s the biggest city without a professional sport there. So with the college there, it’s a great college town and I love that.”
