A New Leader For A New Era At SFA

Stephen F. Austin has been without baseball program for a decade. But, a former Horned Frog is set to bring the national pastime back to campus. Donnie Watson was introduced today as the new head baseball coach that will lead the Lumberjacks back into division one baseball. After 11 years as a TCU assistant, Watson is confidant he can lead SFA back to success.

"This was a great day for my family," said Watson, "it's a great day for me. It's a great day for Stephen F. Austin baseball. But, it's a bad day for the Southland Conference, because we totally intend to change the way the championship structure is done. We're going to be a force in it."

The Lumberjacks begin Southland Conference play in 2006.
