PEORIA, Ill. - The Bradley Baseball team has added eight recruits for the 2013 season, according to an announcement from fourth-year Braves head coach Elvis Dominguez.

The eight newcomers all will come to Bradley as freshmen next season.  The athletic group consists of six pitchers, three with the ability to also play in the field, an infielder and an outfielder.  The group also is made up of four players from Illinois, twin brothers from Minnesota, one from Missouri and one from Wisconsin.

"We have signed a very athletic class this year, as all of the players are multi-sport athletes," said Dominguez.  "A lot of the credit goes to Coach (John) Corbin and Coach (Sean) Lyons for putting together such a great group of student-athletes to join our program and university. 

"We had some needs due to graduation and the draft this year and with this group we have addressed those needs for the future.  I am looking forward to getting them on campus and working with them next fall."
