Triplett Signs With Arkansas Baptist

Updated: Aug 17, 2018

Prior to the summer starting, we had a mission to find a college opportunity for Donterrian "Dee" Triplett. In May, Dee's team won the Missouri State Class 3 Championship; in June, Dee was named All-State; and July, Dee was named "SEMO Baseball Athlete of the Year" by SEMOBall.com.

That is an incredible run. But with August fast approaching, Dee had no scholarship offers.

Dee Triplett was named 2018 SEMO Baseball Athlete of the Year.

Mineral Area College said they wanted Dee, but they had no money to offer.

When our team travels to a weekend tournament, we hire a college coach from that area to be in our dugout. This provides our players the opportunity to learn about different baseball programs and gives that coach an opportunity to see our players in action. You learn more about players during 4 games in the dugout than you can see from the stands for a couple of innings.

Coach Frank Lee. Central Baptist College. Conway Arkansas.
