COACH MATHEY ON FULLER "Seth Fuller played his first year at Western Illinois and is a guy Coach Coryell knows very well. He is a guy that has a four-pitch mix, throws them all for strikes and played in the Northwoods League over the summer and was an all-star up there with Wisconsin Rapids so we're excited to have him here.
