Conway, Ark. (June 8, 2017) – Central Baptist College baseball coach Dr. Aaron Brister welcomed another new member to the Mustang family on Tuesday with the signing of Pietro Paulino. Paulino comes to CBC from Hesston College in Kansas.
"We are excited to sign a player of Pietro's talent," said assistant coach and recruiting coordinator Frank Lee. "He was committed to a Division I school and due to some unforeseen cuts, it didn't work out. A coaching friend contacted us about him and fortunately we were in Kansas for NCCAA regionals and got to sit down and talk with him. After doing so, both sides felt like this was a good fit and he signed a few days later."
Paulino, from Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, played one season for the Larks of Hesston. He appeared in 32 games and batted .295 with two home runs and 18 RBIs while playing mostly third base and shortstop.
