Dishman signs with Lindsey Wilson

Somerset — Charlie Dishman has done it all for the Somerset High School baseball team for the past three seasons.

Dishman – a clutch hitter, a go-to pitcher, and a mainstay at third base – is being rewarded for each of those talents, as he recently signed a scholarship to play baseball at Lindsey Wilson College.

The Briar Jumper senior is really looking forward to playing baseball for the Blue Raiders come next spring.

“It’s a great opportunity to be able to continue my baseball career at the next level,” began Dishman. “I’m so excited about the opportunity to play college baseball.”

Dishman, who plans to major in accounting after graduating high school, felt that the college in Columbia seemed to be the place for him.

“Lindsey had a great field and great facilities,” stated Lindsey Wilson signee. “It’s a really good school. I picked Lindsey because I really liked it there – it was a great fit for me.”

Since coming to Somerset his sophomore year, Dishman has been named to the Commonwealth Journal All-County Baseball Team on two occasions – 2012 and 2013.

As a sophomore, Dishman went 7-1 on the hill with an earned run average (ERA) of 1.89. In 73 innings, Dishman struck out 91 batters. At the plate, the Somerset player had a batting average of .435, 39 RBI’s, and four home runs.

During his junior campaign, the future Raider struck out 55 batters and had an ERA of 3.11 in 36 innings. Hitting-wise, Dishman had 52 hits, which included 20 doubles, a lone triple, and six home runs. Dishman finished with an average of .505 and 43 RBI’s.

Despite only being at Somerset for three seasons, Dishman has loved his time there and is very appreciative of veteran head coach Phil Grundy.

“Coach Grundy has been great and has helped me so much,” said the Briar Jumper. “I have really enjoyed my time here at Somerset High School.”

Grundy also had some kind words for Dishman and his family, who he is very appreciative of for their time and efforts made into the Somerset baseball program.

“We are proud of Charlie,” said Grundy. “He went to Lindsey because he was given the opportunity to play two ways. A lot of the schools that were recruiting him were really looking at him as just a pitcher. He’s a great pitcher, but he can hit and has become a really good third baseman.”

“For a kid like Charlie to work so hard and finally get a reward, is just great,” continued the Jumper baseball coach. “He has earned all of this and deserves every single bit of it. We are really proud of the man that Charlie has become.”
