Trent Anderson signed a letter of intent to play baseball for the University of Missouri - St. Louis Tritons (UMSL). How did he come to his decision?

“I went to one of their camps last year—the coaches were great, it’s an awesome campus and their [baseball] field was really cool,” said Trent. “I think it’s just where I want to be.”

He will be playing one more baseball season this spring for Hermann High School Coach Wayland McKague. After that, he says he’ll be playing Legion ball this summer. He’s looking forward to playing at a higher level of the sport once he arrives at the UMSL campus.

“UMSL seems like a good fit for Trent,” says Coach McKague. “I’m excited for him and excited we’ve got another college kid going to play baseball.”

The coaches at UMSL are already working on a plan to put Trent on a fast-track, to get him assimilated into the team as soon as possible.

“I’ll be a pitcher, with [the positions of] first baseman and outfield as a possibility because they say they want me to bat, as well as pitch,” shared Trent. “It should be fun.”

Trent says he plans to go into the nursing program for his degree.
