DELPHOS — Lincoln Mueller of St. John’s signed his letter of intent to play baseball at Wright State University Lake Campus on Monday. The pitcher/first baseman batted .389 with 14 RBI’s last spring and carried a .529 on base percentage.

“I wanted to stay local,” said Mueller. “The class sizes are smaller and that is more comfortable for me coming from St. John’s. I also get the opportunity to do something I love — play baseball.

After struggling to find his groove in the spring, Mueller dominated on the mound for the Blue Jays in summer ACME. He held a record of 4-2 while maintaining a 1.15 ERA and struck out 64 batters.

“We can always count on Lincoln,” said St. John’s head baseball coach Jerry Jackson. “Last summer was his turning point. He still has this spring to finish and has all the tools to be a great pitcher.”

Muller will study psychology and will play first base in the fall and pitch in the spring.

“We are excited to have Lincoln join our organization,” said Wright State head coach Chad Geier. “He’s a strong left-handed pitcher that can play the infield. He also shows power at the plate.”
