3 baseball players finalize college plans

Three Howard County baseball players, including two members of Western’s 2012 Class 3A state championship team, finalized their college decisions last week ahead of their senior seasons.

Western standout Marcus Pingleton signed with Heartland Community College in Normal, Ill. Teammate Nathan Kirk inked with Indiana Tech. And, Kokomo’s Jacob McMain signed with Franklin.

Pingleton earned Class 3A first-team all-state honors last year. He manned center field, batted leadoff and played in all 34 games for the 25-9 Panthers.

The Panther sparkplug finished as the Howard County leader in home runs (10), runs scored (42) and stolen bases (14) and the co-leader in triples (four). In addition, he had a team-high .375 batting average, 22 RBI and a .450 on-base percentage.

Pingleton smacked a leadoff home run in the bottom of the first inning in the Panthers’ regional final victory over Griffith.

Kirk played in 17 games for the Panthers and finished with a .267 batting average. In addition, he had a 2-0 record and 1.61 ERA in five pitching appearances totaling 8 2/3 innings.

McMain had a nice junior season for the Wildkats.

He finished with a .429 batting average, which topped his squad and ranked second in the county. He drove in 15 runs and had a .455 on-base percentage.

On the mound, McMain had a 1-4 record, two saves and a 4.26 ERA in 12 appearances totaling 23 innings.
