CLEAR SPRING -- Give Clear Spring baseball star Brandon Glazer credit for being honest. When asked why he chose to sign to play at Division I College of Charleston in South Carolina, one of the first reasons he gave had nothing to do with baseball.
"I heard the female-to-male ratio is 3:1 and that opened my eyes," Glazer said.
Glazer's play on the diamond opened the Cougars' eyes -- and that's saying something. The College of Charleston won Southern Conference championships in four straight years from 2004-07.
"I like the baseball complex and the coaching staff," Glazer said. "They have a pretty young coaching staff and they connected with me."
The numbers Glazer produced in his junior season last spring would open anyone's eyes. He hit .508 with 11 doubles, two home runs, 23 RBIs, 22 runs scored, 15 walks and 14 steals, all while playing solid defensively at shortstop.
