Zach Schultz, of Baroda, has signed a National Letter of Intent to play baseball at Kellogg Community College and will begin playing for the Bruins next season.

Schultz, a senior at Lakeshore High School, is a member of the school’s two-time district championship baseball team. He earned First Team All-Region, First Team All-District and First Team All-Conference honors his junior year and Second Team All-Conference honors his sophomore year.

“Zach comes from a great program and can really swing the bat,” said Head KCC Baseball Coach Eric Laskovy. “He’s expected to positively impact our program immediately.”

KCC’s Bruins made their mark last season as conference and regional champions after winning the Michigan Community College Athletic Association conference championship and the National Junior College Athletic Association Division II North Baseball Tournament in May 2015. The team finished the season with a 23-3 conference record and a 39-16 record overall after going 2-2 in NJCAA Division II World Series play in Enid, Okla., in what was the team’s sixth national championship appearance since 1999.

The team’s first home games of the 2016-17 season will begin at 2 p.m. Tuesday, March 29, as part of a doubleheader against Lake Michigan College at Bailey Park in Battle Creek. Admission is free.
