Maryland OF Corey Rosier will be playing ball for the Pirates next season

ECU baseball has become even more potent with the addition of Maryland OF Corey Rosier to the lineup as he committed a few days ago

East Carolina  has added even more firepower to their lineup and in the field with the addition of Maryland outfielder Corey Rosier. 

The 5-foot-10 175 pound outfielder said that he became a Pirate because he believed choosing ECU was the best decision he could make concerning his future on and off the field 

"It is a great school for me to further my education at,' said Rosier. "They have a great baseball team and the coaches are great guys. I feel ECU was the best option for me and my future. Their baseball team has the number one team GPA in the AAC."

Rosier continued to talk about head coach Cliff Godwin, who recently signed an extension through 2020.

"Coach Godwin is a great man and an awesome coach who takes baseball and his job very seriously and creates a great baseball environment,' said Rosier. "He cares about you beyond baseball and wants to make sure you are successful not  only on the field, but in the classroom."

ECU finished the 2016 season 90 feet away from Omaha, Rosier believes ECU is due for a trip to the College World Series.

"I believe ECU can and will make serious runs at the College World Series in the future," said Rosier. "The program is just going to continue growing and growing and getting better. They have a great group of guys."

Rosier gave insights about how his future at ECU will pan out and what he wants to bring to the table.

"In my years at ECU," said Rosier "I am looking forward to being energy and effort to the program each and everyday. Doing that can be very contagious to others and my goal is bring a College World Series to ECU."

Rosier, who hit .543 last season with 41 RBIs, is also a great defensive addition with a .977 fielding percentage.
