Recently, former Liberty baseball player Michael Just and his baseball/softball training facility Just Hits was featured on the LFSN Game ON show.

Just, who played for the Flames from 2003-06, has used his former baseball career to found a professional instruction center in Westwood, N.J., with a vision to reach youth through the sports of baseball and softball. Along with fellow former Flames teammates Chad Miller (2005-06) and Ryan Page (2005-08), Just has turned that vision into the Just Hits Professional Instructional Facility, reaching over 2,000 clients.

During his four years at Liberty, Just played in 206 games, hit .337, scoring 151 runs and driving in 112. Currently, he ranks fifth all-time in hits (247) and 10th in runs scored in program history.

In 2006, the second baseman was named to the Big South All-Conference and VaSID All-State teams. That year, Just collected 94 hits during the season, which ranks second on the Flames' single season list.

After his days at Liberty, Just went on to play professionally in the Houston Astros organization and enjoyed a successful Independent League playing career. In 2007, he was named the Northern League Rookie of the Year as a member of the Fargo Moorehead RiverHawks and in 2009, was selected as the MVP of the Atlantic League All-Star game, representing the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs.
