Carter to stay close to home

Posted: August 12, 2014 - 11:13pm

The decision was a fairly easy one for Evans High School senior baseball player Seth Carter.

On July 30, Carter, the Knights’ right-handed relief pitcher, pulled the trigger and made a commitment to play for Georgia Regents University.

“It’s close to home – about 15 minutes away – I like coach (Jason) Eller and the atmosphere seems great.”

In six appearances with the Knights in 2014, Carter posted a 1-1 record while striking out eight batters.

Evans head coach Ricky Beale expects Carter to take on a bigger role his senior campaign.

“Seth worked extremely hard last season and during the offseason to get to this point,” said Beale. “We expect him to continue working this offseason and provide a lot of innings for us in 2015.”

Carter wanting to stay close to home was a major point in GRU’s favor and familiarity with players already on the team didn’t hurt.

“I know several boys over there including David Rivera (2014 Evans grad) who committed there.”

Carter also received interest from Georgia Southwestern College but the Jaguars had everything he was looking for.

With the commitment out of the way, it will make for a more relaxed season.

“I can take it easy and give it all I’ve got,” Carter said.
