teams in college baseball this season ....there doing it with tj collett taking swings in the middle of the cats lineup ..... the wabash valley great is really starting to make a name for himself down in lexington.... tj collett this season is sending the baseball through kentucky skies just like he use to back in terre haute. my confidence has always been there because i knew i could hit my whole life. one year ago, tj never really got a chance to show off his elite power. a leg injury slowed him to just 23 at bats during his freshman campaign.... even though he wasn't playing much, collett said he was still able to take in the college game. lat year learned so much think it's the reason i started off hot this year. keep doing samething i was doing in past. keep learning. you can tell tj learned alot.... through 14 games, collett is hitting 382 ..... he's tied for first in the nation with eight homers ......the former terre haute north star credits some of that to being part of what many think is the most dangerous lineup in college. our team is doing great, its easy to hit well. no pressure because everyone else in lineup is doing good. the key to the lefty sluggers hot start to the season, and this may be the biggest thing. he's finally injury free for the first time in awhile. healthiest i've been in a really long time. makes me play baseball more freely. more carefree which really helps my game. a healthy collett can usually crank out a lot of homers....with his hot start could he break uk's single season record of 23 ....one of the guys who holds that school mark is tj's friend and mentor aj reed! me and him still keep in touch. fun to joke around with him. indiana state baseball will play their home opener
