Two Crean Lutheran junior pitchers make college baseball commitments

Two Crean Lutheran High School baseball players, both juniors, have made college commitments, Saints head coach Jake Haney said Wednesday.

Jack O’Malley, a right-handed pitcher, has committed to Bucknell University.

“He has a big arm, he threw up to 91 (MPH) in the fall last year but was hurt and didn’t play the whole season,” Haney said.

Bryan Fernandez, another right-handed pitcher, has committed to Lewis and Clark Colllege.

“He had a great season for us last year as our primary reliever,” Haney said. “He had a 1-0 record in 22 innings with 25 strikeouts.”

Haney said next year’s team has lots of talent and he expects several additional commitments in the coming months.
