LINDSBORG — Bethany College continues to add baseball signees as the recruiting process is near its end.

Jacob Nation of Lawrence has joined a long list of newcomers for Swede coach Andrew Bartman.

Nation, a first baseman and outfielder, graduated from Lawrence High School. He played football as a guard and defensive end, lettering his junior and senior years.

Nation also has played baseball in summer leagues for numerous years.

"Jacob Nation is someone who really bought into what we are trying to do with our program while he was on campus," Bartman said. "His hard-working outlook and quiet demeanor are things that we need. Jacob's best baseball is ahead of him and I look forward to seeing his continual development as a student and as an athlete."

He is the son of Seth and Lori Nation and plans to major in physics.
