NEWARK, Del. - - The Wilmington University baseball team is pleased to announce the newest member of the Wildcat family, Mike Smith, as he signed a Letter of Participation for the upcoming 2018 season in front of current Wildcats, head coach Brian August, family, and friends.
Smith joins the Wildcats through the Muscle Movement Foundation by way of organization founder, president, and muscular dystrophy champion Rob DeMasi.
