LOCKPORT —

Bulls baseball coach Ron Torgalski came to a Lions practice last April and liked what he saw in the lanky, hard-throwing right-hander and clutch, contact hitter.
“My summer coach, Brian Charlton, is the former UB hitting coach. I met up with him going into my 10th grade year and Brian said that the UB coach really liked me. Here and there I talked to him and he came up for a couple of visits and then asked me to attend a camp over the summer. After that, he said UB would offer me a scholarship,” Charlie said.
“They said they’d like to keep me at third and pitch me sometimes. I told them, ‘Whatever you need me to do I’ll do it,’ “ Charlie said.
A consumate team player, Charlie credited his many teammates over the years with helping him to succeed.
“Just winning the league championship last spring with all my friends was something I’ll never forget,” Charlie said.
A standout student (3.2 GPA), Charlie plans to study, “something between sociology and business” at UB, but is leaning more towards business and something in the criminal justice field after college.
“College is very expensive and I know that baseball scholarships are hard to come by. The package that UB gave me is a great fit for me and the bottom line is I’m getting a great education,” Charlie said.
