The Nittany Lions are coming off an 18-37 season (4-19 Big Ten) and are welcoming 13 new additions to join a returning group of 21. Among the new players are Penn State wrestler Matt McCutcheon, who’s listed as a catcher, and freshman Mason Mellott — who graduated from State College.
Mellott was named the CDT Athlete of the Spring after striking out 78 and earning a 2.00 ERA as a senior.
“Mason is a hard working young man who absolutely relishes the opportunity to compete,” Penn State coach Rob Cooper said in a written statement. “He is a State College native who is committed to helping Penn State baseball win at the highest level. We are extremely excited about his future as a Nittany Lion.”
The regular season starts in February.
