Bridgeport's Greg Smith Signs with West Virginia Wesleyan for Baseball


Bridgeport senior infielder Greg Smith signed his National Letter of Intent on Wednesday afternoon. Smith chose to continue his baseball career at West Virginia Wesleyan College next year.

Smith suffered a shoulder injury last year, sidelining him for the entire season. After surgery and extensive treatment, he has returned this year, earning a spot on the Wesleyan roster.

He said the Bobcats coaching staff continued to show interest even after the injury, which solidified his stance on choosing Wesleyan to continue his college baseball career.

"When I went there, it felt just like I was at home when I was there. I talked to the coach and they just told me everything I was hoping to hear. So that's where I made my decision," Smith said.
