West Australian infielder Dylan Bojarski is the latest Aussie to commit to Vernon College.
The 18-year-old, who was part of the National Junior Squad this year, says the Texas school is a great choice for him as he chases his goal of playing professionally.
“I have heard lots of good things about Vernon and the baseball program they run,” Bojarski told baseball.com.au.
“They care about player progression…they have a high quality baseball development program that I believe will benefit me to achieve my goals of becoming better and playing professional baseball.
“The college plays against many other strong colleges (and) being part of a good level of baseball will also help myself improve.”
The Swan Districts Swans and Carine Cats product said his parents and brother Ulrich had played a key role in his development and journey.
“Since a young age my dad has been watching baseball videos to help teach me how to get better,” Bojarski said.
“He would relay all this information to me so that I could become a better player.
“He would throw endless batting practice to me and my brother no matter how tired he was or what day it was.
“My mum always drove me to training or gym sessions no matter how often they were, she would always be there to support me no matter what (and) helped me mentally with my game to stay focused and to believe in myself.”
Bojarski won gold with WA a the 2020 U-18 Australian Youth Championship in Geelong in his fourth nationals appearance for his state.
He scored a pair of runs in the thrilling championship game win over Queensland.
Bojarski has made 10 WA State League 1 appearances for the Swans this season.
He previously represented Team Australia at the 2015 WBSC U-12 Baseball World Cup.
Victorian pitcher Josh Ashen committed to the Chaps last month and Zac Skinner is at the Division I junior college presently.
