Weber headed to Columbia

Payton Weber did not take long to make an impact on the baseball program at Hollister High School.  He stepped right in and played a vital role for the Tigers last season.  He hopes to continue that success this spring and in the future playing College Baseball.

On Monday, Weber signed a National Letter of Intent to continue his baseball career and his academic future at Columbia College.  His current and future coaches, along with a large group of teammates, family and friends were on hand for the occasion.

Weber stated that the Cougars plan to use him in a utility role.  From his numbers, you can see why they want to get his bat in the lineup.  As a Junior, for Coach John Burgi’s Tigers, he hit .341 with 9 doubles and a triple.  He hopes to improve on those numbers in his senior campaign this spring.

Columbia is a new baseball program but has had early success.  Coach Darren Munns led them to a 34-17 mark last year as a first year program.  Even more impressive, they were 24-6 in America Midwest Conference Games.

Columbia College is an NAIA institution, located in Columbia, MO
