Pitcher | 6'0 | Cayuga, IN | North Vermillion High School

LINCOLN, IL - The Lincoln Christian University (LCU) Red Lions' baseball program picked up a big commitment with the signing of Cayuga, Indiana native, Lance Warner.

Warner adds immediate depth to the LCU pitching rotation and will be an asset to the Red Lions in the middle infield positions as well. During his senior season, Warner was a force on the mound for his North Vermillion High School team. He finished the year 7-4 with a 3.74 ERA and 69 strikeouts.

"We're not only excited about Lance's potential as a baseball player" said LCU Head Baseball Coach Ty Unger.   "We're even more excited about the leadership he will bring to our team. Lance has a genuine relationship with Christ and you can tell he tries to live that out through his actions on and off the field. As a player, Lance has pitched in pressure situations and will be able to make an immediate impact for us on the mound. I'm looking forward to coaching him."

LCU provided exactly what Warner was looking for on and off the field.

"I'm excited to play baseball at a higher level while pursuing a degree on a great campus" he said after signing.

Warner signed his Letter of Intent on LCU's campus July 6, accompanied by his father and Coach Unger.
