Interlake baseball player picks Seattle University | Prep sports news

Interlake senior and baseball player Sam Finfer recently signed a letter of intent to continue his playing career and education at Seattle University and coach Donny Harrel. While he plays multiple positions for coach Marc Linn and the Saints, Harrel said Finfer projects as a catcher at the collegiate level.

"Sam comes in as another great signing for us behind the plate," Harrel said in a press release from the school. "What I love is that even with Brian Olson already here, Sam did not back away from the challenge of getting innings behind the plate. His defensive skill set will allow us to control the running game. He brings another left handed bat to our lineup and finds ways to put the barrel on the ball."

Seattle University has successfully mined the Eastside and Puget Sound region under Harrel and the Redhawks will be a full-time member of the Western Athletic Conference for the 2013 season and beyond.
