Meet The Herd: Baseball Newcomers

NASHVILLE - With Opening Day nearing, Lipscomb baseball would like to feature the new faces of the team this season. Get to know The Herd by checking out the details on some student-athletes below.

 

Wyatt Folsom #11 l Junior l RHP l Denton, Texas (Fort Scott CC)

Why did you decide to come to Lipscomb?

It just seemed like a perfect fit. I got the offer last year in November, came up for a visit and it just seemed like the perfect place.

What is one thing you're looking forward to in your first season at Lipscomb?

I'm excited to play some big teams. Last year I was playing JUCO teams and now I get to play some big teams so I'm excited for that and getting to see some real talent.

If you had to model your game after a MLB player, who would you say you resemble the most?

Aaron Nola, the pitcher from the Philadelphia Phillies. We kind of have the same arm slot and build, not the skill quite yet but I would say I model my game after him.

What are your plans after college?

I want to be a pilot. So I'm going to go from here to Mississippi to the International Guard and fly there for a little bit instead of paying a lot of money to go to flight school. Then after that hopefully I'll fly for an airline company.

If there was a movie made about your life, which actor would you want to play you?

I've been told I like look Jim from "The Office" a lot, so I would probably say John Krasinski.

 

Logan Van Treeck #29 l Freshman l LHP l Lincoln, Neb. (Lincoln Southeast High School)

Why did you decide to come to Lipscomb?

For me it was kind of a God thing. I came to a camp here my sophomore year of high school and wasn't good enough to play here. Then a year later, Coach saw me in Atlanta and I had improved a lot, so things just worked out.

What is one thing you're looking forward to in your first season at Lipscomb?

All of it. The competition, just getting to see everyone in their element doing their thing and playing our hearts out.

Which pitcher has your favorite windup or delievery?

Probably Bob Gibson. Got to go with his windup from the past.

Who is your hero and why?

Probably my dad. He's just always been there ever since I was growing up. He's super supportive, loving and kind. He's shown me work ethic, so my dad for sure. 

What is your spirit animal?

A dolphin.

 

Dylan Bierman #28 l Junior l RHP l Tulsa, Okla. (Johnson County CC)

Why did you decide to come to Lipscomb?

I came on my visit and I just felt like this was this place where I could develop as a whole person, player and it was just the best fit for me with the culture, all the guys and the coaches.

What is one thing you're looking forward to in your first season at Lipscomb?

Just competing with the guys. Going through adversity, struggling and then getting over the hump and winning games.

What do you think the biggest adjustment from JUCO to Division I is going to be?

The schedule is a little different with four games per week instead of the doubleheaders at the JUCO level. Playing nine innings every game will be different, but at the end of the day it's just baseball.

What is your favortie thing to do on your off days?

I love reading, cooking, I'm a big cook, and I like working out a lot.

What is your favorite thing to cook?

I love bowls with chicken, rice, vegetables and a bunch of different healthier things.
