Four members of Manatee's baseball team will sign with State College of Florida later this month, said Hurricanes coach Dwayne Strong.

Pitcher/first baseman Correlle Prime (above, wearing a white t-shirt), shortstop Chase Sandberg, third baseman Trevor Beeman and Trevor's twin brother, Tyler, an outfielder, will take part in a group signing 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 18 at Manatee.

Prime went 9-1 with a 3.14 ERA last year while batting .396 with five home runs and 30 RBIs. Sandberg hit five home runs, as well, while batting .375 and scoring a team-best 36 runs.

Trevor Beeman batted .379 with 24 RBIs while Tyler hit .388 with 25 runs scored.

The quartet helped Manatee reach their the Class 5A state final four, marking the Hurricanes' first state semifinal appearance since 1963.

Manatee plays in the Jody Friedman Pre-Season Classic beginning Feb. 8 and opens the regular season Feb. 14 at G.T. Bray against Tampa Berkeley Prep.
