Royer Signs Four Baseball Recruits
Liberty Flames baseball head coach Matt Royer has announced the commitment of four student-athletes to attend Liberty for the upcoming 2007-08 academic year.

"I am pleased these young men have decided to become a part of the Liberty baseball family," said Royer. "This group continues our commitment to bring quality individuals to our program."

Of the four newcomers, two are infielders and two are outfielders. Three will be starting their collegiate career at Liberty, while one will be transferring from a junior college.

Infielders Matt Bona and Jimmy Miller have chosen to start their college careers at Liberty. Bona, a native of Vero Beach, Fla., is currently a senior at St. Edward's High School and last year attended Westminster Academy in Fort Lauderdale where several current and former Flames played during their prep career, including his brother John, who played for Liberty from 1999-2002. Miller, a native of Hummelstown, Pa., is a senior at Lower Dauphin High School. As a member of the Falcons, he was a teammate of current Liberty pitcher Dustin Umberger.

Also committing to attend Liberty next fall are outfielders Joe Feeley and Tim Rotola. Hailing from Chesapeake, Md., Feeley is in his final year at Red Lion Christian Academy in Bear, Del. With good speed, the outfielder has also excelled in cross country during his prep career. Rotola rounds out the group. The outfielder currently is in his second year at Independence Community College in his native Wichita, Kan. He graduated from Word of Life Traditional School where he enjoyed an outstanding prep career.
