Both at the plate and behind it, Maryland’s Luke Shliger is a master of the strike zone
The University of Maryland backstop is one of the most unique players in the country. Shliger has such strong knowledge of the strike zone that he can get on base seemingly at will. He rarely chases a pitch outside the zone, and is patient enough to hold off on borderline pitches. He has enough speed to swipe bases and keep pitchers on their toes. And his mastery of the strike zone is enhanced by playing the position closest to it.
