Forbush named to Bob Jones baseball team

GRAND BLANC — Grand Blanc resident Elijah Forbush has been named to the Bob Jones University Bruins’ baseball team for the inaugural 2021 season.

Forbush, a business administration major, will be part of 22-player roster.

The Bruins will open the season Feb. 12 on the road and will play their home opener Feb. 20 against Montreat College. They will play nearly 40 regular season games and compete in the NCCAA conference this season. Their goal is to qualify for the NCCAA World Series from May 21-25 in Easley, South Carolina.

“Many people have been involved for several months and even years in planning and preparation of this program, and for that I am very thankful,” Bruins head coach Brent Casteel said. “It’s so exciting to see it change from a vision to reality. My guys are working very hard to prepare themselves for the upcoming season. We can’t wait to be on the field together in the spring.”

Bob Jones University is located in Greenville, South Carolina. — L.R.
