Kranawetter signs with USI
The University of Southern Indiana baseball team announced the signing of Jeremy Kranawetter (Jacob, Illinois) to a letter of intent for the 2003 season. Kranawetter is the third player to sign with USI Head Coach Mike Goedde this year.
Kranawetter will transfer to USI from Shawnee Community College in Ullin, Illinois. The left-handed hitter played three different positions for the Saints, seeing time at shortstop, second base, and in the outfield.
This spring, Kranawetter hit .393 with 38 runs scored and 37 RBIs in 38 games. He also blasted 10 home runs and 13 doubles, posting a slugging percentage of .726.
“Jeremy’s ability to play more than one position combined with being a left-handed hitter made him very attractive to us,” Goedde explained. “His previous statistics indicate success at every level. He will be a tremendous player in our program.”
Prior playing at Shawnee Community College, Kranawetter played a season at Forrest Park Community College in 2000. He was the named the Easton Redline NJCAA Defensive Player of the Year as a freshman and led Forrest Park to the 2000 regional championship.
Kranawetter is a 1999 graduate of Trico High School in Campbell, Illinois, where he was a four-sport student athlete. A two-time All-South performer in baseball, he also lettered in basketball, football, and golf.
