BIG MAN HEADING TO LITTLE GIANTS
StaceyPageOnline / Sports on Friday, April 26, 2019
WARSAW – Warsaw senior standout Liam Patton has been a leader on the field for the Tiger baseball program the past several seasons, and field general from behind the plate has announced his sights will be set on Wabash College in the fall.
Patton, the 6-2 signal caller for the Tigers, has been stellar behind the plate defensively and among the leading hitters for the Tigers. He saw some varsity starts as freshman at third and behind the plate, and he has not left the starting lineup, mostly behind the plate, the past three years. As a senior, Patton is hitting .389 with three doubles, two homers and seven driven in through Thursday. Patton finished his junior campaign as a .448 hitter.
Patton becomes the third player from the 2019 Tiger roster to sign with a college, joining Avery Remocaldo (Ivy Tech) and Drake Graham (Taylor).
Not only has the Northern Lakes Conference Honorable Mention pick from last year been among the leaders for the Tigers on the baseball field, he has been a big part of efforts to help the community through his work with Feed My Starving Children, volunteering for Tiger Baseball Camps and the Warsaw Little League. The WCHS Scholar athlete has also served as a Dare Role Model.
Patton anticipates majoring in Financial Economics at Wabash and competing for the Little Giants baseball program led by coach Jake Martin. Wabash is a member of the NCAA III and the North Coast Athletic Conference.
