Cornerstone University and head baseball coach David Mitroff
are excited to announce the signing of Joel Boersen, a corner infielder from Tri Unity Christian School in Wyoming, Michigan. As a junior, Joel hit .581 and drove in seventeen runs. The 6'3" 215lb righty was named All-Conference, All-District, and All-Area both his sophomore and junior seasons. He was also named honorable mention All-State.
"I have always wanted to attend Cornerstone as I love the atmosphere and the people there. Once it was announced that they had added baseball and I realized that I had the opportunity to be in a Christian environment both academically and athletically, I made my decision," Boersen said. "I owe a lot to my family for the contributions they have made to my academics and athletics."
Coach Mitroff said, "Joel is a powerful hitter who will probably play first base for us. We were not only impressed with his baseball ability, but his academic success as well. He gets it done in the classroom and on the field. We are also extremely happy to sign another local talent. We want to recruit nationally while we continue to keep the great Michigan talent here in Michigan at Cornerstone University."
