Zach Shelstad Signs to Pitch for the Blue Hawks

DICKINSON, ND- Left Handed Pitcher Zach Shelstad has signed to pitch for the Blue Hawk Baseball team for the 2015-2016 season.

Shelstad is currently in his sophomore season at Miles Community College in Miles City, MT. Zach is originally from Coronach, Saskatchewan. He has seen innings for the Pioneers as a relief pitcher and has worked his way into the starting rotation this season. Shelstad is also a very good student being named to the MonDak All- Academic team.

"I chose to become a Blue Hawk because I have always heard great things about Dickinson State University and the baseball program. On my campus visit, I felt very comfortable and I really enjoyed the campus," said Shelstad.

Zach is the son of Mark and Carol Shelstad and he enjoys football, basketball and hockey which he participated in high school as well as baseball.

"Adding Zach to our pitching staff continues to give us depth on the mound. In baseball, it seems that you can never have enough arms especially left handed arms. Shelstad will come in next year and fight for a starting spot on the mound and we will also use him in lefty- lefty match ups," said Head Baseball Coach Jason Watson.
