Weir is co-captain pick for BSU baseball team

Kokomo High School product T.J. Weir will lead Ball State’s baseball team in the 2014 season as one of the Cardinals’ co-captains.

Weir, a senior infielder/pitcher, appeared in 48 games with 45 starts in 2013. He made 16 appearances on the mound and had 60 strikeouts in 60 innings. He closed with a 3-2 record, a team-high three saves and a 3.90 ERA. At the plate, the former Wildkat three-sport standout had 11 multi-hit games and five mult-RBI games. He was fifth on the team with 74 total bases.

Jacob Brewer is the Cardinals’ other captain. The South Bend St. Joseph’s product sat out the 2013 season due to injury. He is a pitcher.

“Naming T.J. Weir and Jacob Brewer team captains was an excellent selection by our team,” coach Rich Maloney said in a story on Ball State’s website. “Both veteran players have exhibited great work ethic, determination, passion and enthusiasm to be their best. With their experience and desire to see Ball State baseball succeed, they will push the other players to continue to raise the level of our program.”

Ball State had a 31-24 overall record last season and a 15-12 Mid-American Conference mark. The Cardinals will open the 2014 season on Feb. 14, vs. Morehead State in Spartanburg, S.C.

Taylor High School product Seth Vautaw also plays for the Cardinals.
