Southern fell short of the NCAA baseball tournament this season. Still, the Jaguars will have a presence in Omaha, Neb., this week.
Assistant coach Fernando Puebla and two players,
outfielder Gavin Webster and infielder Harley Wiltz, will serve as instructors at a youth clinic in conjunction with the College World Series, SU head coach Roger Cador said.
This is the third consecutive year in which Puebla — the former SU infielder and now longtime assistant — has served as an instructor at the clinic, which happens this weekend.
Webster and Wiltz just finished their first seasons as active players on the SU roster.
Webster, a third-year
sophomore who transferred from LSU-Eunice (via Southeastern Louisiana), hit .230 in 35 games, with five homers and 23 RBIs.
Wiltz, a freshman from Acadiana High, hit .327 in 17 games.
