Head coach Tim Corbin on LaNeve: “Troy has improved in every area on campus. What is most pleasing is the active role he took with his own academic development. That growth has led to continued improvement on the baseball field as well. Troy has a very even, consistent and positive disposition that lends itself very well to his teammates. He has versatility in the outfield and offensive strength that has been realized over the last few months.”
