(Maryville) Former EHK-Exira baseball star Carson Smith is now serving a key role in the bullpen for the Northwest Missouri State Bearcats.
Smith has pitched 27 innings for the 14-24 Bearcats. The redshirt freshman has an ERA of 5.33 and ranks 2nd on the team in both appearances (13) and saves (1).
Northwest Missouri State head coach Darin Loe says Smith’s redshirt season a year ago was beneficial. While Smith is in a bullpen role now, Coach Loe foresees him developing as a starter. Coach Loe also mentioned that Smith has a great arm and when things are going great he is nearly unhittable.
Smith is the latest of several family members who have suited up for Northwest Missouri State.
