On Friday, April 19, a Williston Coyote baseball player publicly announced his intentions to play college baseball next season.
Senior Brady Aberle, who plays multiple positions on the Coyotes baseball squad, has signed a National Letter of Intent to play for Division II University of Minnesota Crookston. The announcement was made via social media on Williston Trending Topics News Radio on Friday afternoon.
Of his many high school baseball positions, Aberle revealed he was recruited by the Golden Eagles as a pitcher. Meanwhile, the former varsity basketball player also said he will no longer be shooting hoops once he gets to college. “Basketball was just kind of a warm up thing for baseball,” Aberle stated. “It was nice to get to play in high school, but I’m ready to move on and just focus on baseball.”
The graduating senior gave credit to Coyotes baseball head coach Aaron Finders for preparing him for the next level of competition, and expressed his gratitude for the opportunity to continue his baseball career. “He definitely loves the game of baseball and that has an impact on everyone else,” Aberle said of Finders. “I never thought I’d get a chance to do it, but the opportunity came and I had to take it. I’m very grateful to the Minnesota Crookston coaching staff.”
