Tim Lynch is having another stellar season, and his team is still alive in the playoff race.
"We just won district last week, and we have our next round this week," he said. "We have a lot of talent and the capability to win all of our games from here on out. We had a rough start, but we are clicking at every point right now."
For Lynch, it has been another solid year at the plate. His power numbers may be down a bit, but there is a good reason for that.
"I finished the regular season just inside .500," he said. "I hit 4 home runs and had about 20 RBI's. But, I had 15 walks. It wasn't the bats, it was that I didn't see anything to hit this year.
"Teams know about my ability to hit and I am just not seeing any pitches to hit."
It was his ability to hit the long ball that caught the eye of the Southern Miss coaches. They extended an offer after watching him take batting practice at a Southern Miss camp and seeing him hit six over the fence.
He's also been very steady in the field.
"I've played 3rd this year and haven't made many errors, in fact I can count them on one hand so that's been good," he said. "Everything is really coming together both at the plate and in the field."
Lynch is very excited about his future with the Golden Eagles.
"I went up to visit at the Houston series, and we got to see first hand what it is like," he said. "It is as good as advertised. The fans are great, amazing atmosphere and incredible facilities."
"I keep in touch with Coach Calliet a lot, and I just signed two weeks ago, I think it was. The team is playing better, and there is a lot of potential for us in the future. There are a lot of good young players and we'll be good for years to come.
"I'm just excited to get up there. They have had a bit of a struggle scoring runs, so they've told me they need my bat in the line-up for sure. I just want to come in, learn from the guys in front of me, and do what I can to contribute.
"If I have to play outfield or whatever they need to get my bat in the line-up I'll do. I am so excited to get there."
Lynch will finish out the season, play with a team this summer in some tournaments, though he is not sure which one, and then get ready to come to Southern Miss in the fall.
