St. Vincent's Williams pursuing baseball dream

Posted by Staff Writer Eric Branch:
Former St. Vincent star Ian Williams will attempt to walk-on the UCLA baseball team this season.
The 6-foot-3 Williams, a freshman, hit .450 with four homers and 24 RBIs as a shortstop at St. Vincent last . He also had a 6-2 record and 1.64 ERA as a pitcher, but he will attempt to be a position player in college.
If this baseball thing doesn’t work out, though, Williams figures to be just fine. He had a 4.35 GPA in high school, was the CIF Farmer’s Insurance Scholar-Athlete of the Year and logged over 400 community service hours.
