FPU signs two
Fresno Pacific University baseball coach Oscar Hirschkorn has signed two players for the fledgling Sunbirds program.
Mike Pierce and Elliot Salcedo have signed FPU letters of intent. Both players transfer from NCAA Division I programs. Both are expected to be juniors with two years of eligibility.
Pierce, a catcher from Clovis High School, played his freshman season at Fresno State University. Elliot, a middle infielder from West Torrance High School, enrolled at UC Irivine, then transferred to Cincinnati.
"I am delighted," said Hirschkorn. "Mike and Elliot can step in and play. They form a solid nucleus that we can build on."
The Sunbirds will play their inaugural season in 2005-06.
