Baseball Recruiting: Fullerton Gets Four More

The Titans, who were depleted by graduating seniors and the 2001 baseball draft, have added four more recruits for the 2002 season.

As mentioned in a previous story, the Titans signed a highly regarded JC Transfer from northern California by the name of Jason Windsor. He will be coming to Fullerton as a sophomore so this is great news, which the Titans could use after losing both Brett Kay and Mike Rouse to the minor leagues since our last update.

Windsor is from West Valley College and was 10-1. He was also the 43rd pick of the Houston Astros in the 2000 draft. He has great command of three pitches -- fastball, curve and change-up -- and should compete for a starting role next season.

In other signing news, the Titans have signed Justin Smyres, a 5-11, 175 pound junior transfer from Cuesta College. A middle infielder who can play short or second, Smyres is also a speedster on the basepaths. He was an All-State selection who will help solidify the middle after the losses of senior David Bacani and Rouse.


Chris Klosterman

In addition, reliable sources have said the Titans will sign two other senior transfers: Shortstop David Munoz from Biola College and Chris Klosterman from Houston University.

Munoz, who played for NAIA College World Series participant Biola College, was an NAIA All-American. He batted .372 with 12 HR and 60 RBI. He is a Jerome Alviso type of player but with much better defensive skills.

Klosterman can play both third and first base but will also be looked upon to pitch for the Titans. He only pitched one inning for Houston last season but is apparently doing quite well at the position during summer league.
