The Athletics Department and the Baseball Team would like to thank everyone who supported us as we welcomed the recruiting class of 2010/2011 Golden Eagles Baseball.
This is an exciting time for La Sierra University and it is a wonderful opportunity for educational development as well as athletic growth. The baseball program is striving to be the model for hard work, professionalism, morality, and integrity. Athletics parallels life in so many ways, particularly in how we handle life's trials. Above all else we want these athletes to leave with the knowledge of how to handle life's trials with a positive and constructive outlook.
