WEATHERFORD – Southwestern Oklahoma State University baseball coach Scott Selby has announced the signing of 22 players that are expected to significantly bolster the 2009 roster. That number is expected to grow even more with the addition of recruited walk-ons that have agreed to tryout for the team once the school year begins.

“We targeted kids that come from winning programs and those who approach the game hungry,” Selby said. “We are going to turn win here and this is the group that is going to help start it.”

Selby said another focus of the recruiting effort was to improve the overall athleticism of the team and to have more depth at each position.

“We need to have more guys competing for a spot in the lineup. It’s not good to have a player at a position without a challenge.” Selby said. “Every spot on our team will be up for grabs. No one will be handed anything.”

The list of the signees are as follows

P Quilan de Windt Fr. Willemstad, Curacao
P Aldemar Beltrien Fr. Santa Cruz, Aruba
