GALESBURG—Springfield Sacred Heart-Griffin High School senior Ryan Hickman has signed to play next season for the Carl Sandburg College baseball team.
Hickman, a 6-foot, 195-pound first baseman, batted .345 with a .462 on-base percentage and team-leading 22 RBIs last summer for the Springfield Scorpions travel team.
“We are excited for Ryan to become a Charger,” Sandburg coach T.J. Lindburg said. “He is a big, strong kid who has the potential to be a run-producer for us in the future. He has a feel for hitting, and with his strength he should be able to drive balls for us.”
