Ehmke signs with USI baseball

EVANSVILLE, Ind. The University of Southern Indiana baseball team announced that outfielder Caleb Ehmke (Waterloo, Indiana) has signed a national letter of intent to play for the Screaming Eagles in 2008. Ehmke is the ninth player to sign with USI and Head Coach Tracy Archuleta this year.

Ehmke transfers to USI after one season at Arizona Western College (Yuma, Arizona), where he batted .244 with eight RBIs and two doubles in 34 games for the Matadors. The Matadors were 33-22 overall in 2007.

Prior to attending AWC, Ehmke was a two-sport athlete at Dekalb High School (Waterloo, Indiana). He was a four-year starter on the baseball team, batting .404 with eight home runs as a senior. Ehmke also earned first team All-Northeast Hoosier Conference and KPC Media Group All-Area honors in 2005.

In basketball Ehmke helped the Barons to the Class 4A State finals in 2003.

"Caleb brings depth to our outfield and will be a solid offensive addition," Archuleta said. "His experience playing in the Arizona Community College Athletic Wood Bat Conference will help us a great deal."

Ehmke joins catcher Kyle Rowley (Indianapolis, Indiana) infielders Eric Barnes (Evansville, Indiana), Josh Huebner (Evansville, Indiana), and Wesley Fink (Clarksville, Tennessee) and pitchers Shaun Larsen (Tell City, Indiana), Patrick Crider (Owensboro, Kentucky), P.J. Thomas (Jeffersonville, Indiana), and Derek Dever (Owensboro, Kentucky) in signing with USI this year.
