Matt Robertson to ESU

MATT ROBERTSON What, pray tell, is Bob Fornelli up to?

The ESU baseball coach added Barton County pitcher Matt Robertson — younger brother of Detroit Tigers pitcher Nate Robertson — to his recruiting class and … what a class. Robertson, who has been drafted twice by the Tigers (42nd round 2007, 49th round 2008), is the sixth Barton player to sign with the Hornets and one of 10 Jayhawk Conference players headed to ESU. Along with three Division I transfers. There is only one high school player in the class — Jordan Welch out of Central Heights.

It’s almost like … Fornelli’s trying to win a national championship or something.

Take a look at the entire class (below), compliments of ESU’s Donald Weast:
