How WSU’s Shane Matheny put it all together

COUGAR THIRD BASEMAN Shane Matheny headed off to Rhode Island for the summer in search of his confidence. What a difference a year can make.

An injury helped Matheny become an All-Pac-12 third baseman this past season, he tells the Kitsap Sun.

Watching some games from the bench during the summer league turned out to be a blessing. Matheny  this past season earned first-team All-Pac-12 honors and led the Cougars in batting average (.309), RBI (34) and on-base percentage (.408). The left-handed hitter was second in doubles (16) and tied for the team lead in multi-hit games (17) and hits (59).

Will Matheny be in Pullman next season or major league baseball?

“He could have some decisions to make, but that stuff will take care of itself,” Marty Lees is quoted in the article. “If it’s right, he’ll know. If it’s not right, he has a chance to come back and do something very special at Washington State and change this program around because of the person he is. He’s a great teammate … completely unselfish.”
