The 2016 Ragin’ Cajuns Baseball recruiting class has now added its 5th public commitment in Ouachita HS Baseball player Caleb Armstrong. Armstrong is a (6’0,180) senior infielder/pitcher for the District 2-5A Lions program. As a junior, Armstrong hit .390 with 17 doubles and 3 triples as Ouachita advanced to the 5A Regional playoffs before losing to the 5A power Sulphur Toros. Caleb talks to the Cajun Redzone about his decision to commit to Coach Tony Robichaux Friday afternoon.
“I took my first visit with the Cajuns this morning and feel in love with the program,” Armstrong stated. “I love the facilities and the hardnosed attitude that they emphasize with their players.”
“They offered me as a position player and pitcher went on to say. Coach Robichaux sealed the deal with me while talking to him today. He truly is a great man and someone that any baseball player would want to play for. I can’t wait to play for not only a great coach, but a great man!”
Caleb Armstrong really didn’t know much about the Ragin’ Cajun’s baseball program considering it is located only three hours from home.
“Coach Babineaux called me and made the offer on July 6th while I was playing in the 17u WWBA Tournament in Atlanta Georgia,” Caleb said. “I really didn’t know much about the program except that they had success winning, so I did my research.”
“This is my first summer playing for team Marucci after having Tommy John surgery after my freshman season.”
Caleb Armstrong joins Jacob Sagrera LHP (6’0,185) Vermilion Catholic, Oliver Campbell LHP (5’9,165) Neville High, Josh Aguilar L/R (5’10,210) Catcher Bishop Lynch, Dallas and Tremaine Spears R/R (5’11,190) OF Tioga High as commitments in the 2016 class.
