WACO, Texas– Baylor baseball inked 15 players for the 2021 season on Wednesday, adding to an already deep team coming off a second place finish in the Big 12 in 2019 and three-straight NCAA Tournament appearances.  
 
The Bears add eight pitchers, six position players and one two-way player on 2019 National Signing Day. Twelve hail from Texas with one apiece from California, Florida and Nevada. The Bears dipped into the high school ranks for 14 of 15 signees, with one commit hailing from junior college.

"We are really excited about this group. Coach Mike Taylor and Coach Jon Strauss once again did an outstanding job putting together a great class," head coach Steve Rodriguez said. "First and foremost, they are outstanding young men who fit our program and chose Baylor because it gives them to best opportunity to compete and develop on and off the field and grow as men. There was an emphasis on bringing in pitching in this class and we added a strong mix of right and left-handed arms. The position players we brought in are super athletic and very dynamic both at the plate and in the field. This group recognizes the steps our program has taken over the last few years and will be great additions as we continue to build on the success set before them.”

What are the odds of Fontenot and or Stasio pitch for us vs. going pro? They would be an unbelievable 1-2 punch.

It sure would. I would be thrilled if we ultimately get either.
