Baseball: West Boca Raton catcher Michael Barash commits to LSU 

By Matt Porter

State champion West Boca Raton has another potential SEC player on their roster.

Junior catcher Michael Barash, who started last year as a sophomore, committed to LSU before his junior season. Barash was an All-Area honorable mention last year.

He joins teammate Parker Danciu (Florida) as an SEC commit. Last year’s ace, Michael Kelly, committed to Florida but elected to sign with the San Diego Padres, who chose him 48th overall in this year’s draft.

* West Boca Raton senior Ryan Owens committed to Winthrop University, a Div. I school in Rock Hill, S.C.
