Dec. 3, 2013
MALIBU, Calif. - Pepperdine Head Coach Steve Rodriguez announced the signing of LHP Nick Wojtysiak to a National Letter of Intent. A 5-11 hurler, Wojtvysiak hails from Fountain Hills HS in Fountain Hills, Ariz. and played four years under head coach Mike Briguglio.
Wojtvysiak was a two time All-State first team honoree and a scholar athlete during his prep career. He is the fifth-ranked left-hander in the state of Arizona according to Perfect Game.
"Nick came to one of our prospect camps and impressed us with his ability to pitch at a high level," said Rodriguez. "A left-handed pitcher with an above average breaking ball is very valuable to any program. Nick should be able to help us right away."
Over the course of the 2013 season Wojtvysiak compiled 2.19 ERA with 93 strikeouts in 60 innings pitched. He also played for the Arizona Athletics travel team.
"I chose Pepperdine for its beautiful campus, great academics, and great Division I baseball program," said Wojtvysiak of why he chose to come to Malibu.
Wojtysiak also excelled in the classroom, earning Scholar Athlete honors at Fountain Hills. He plans to major in business or advertising.
