Steve Pokopec joins the Spartan program after spending last year at Shippensburg University. Pokopec is expected to contribute to the Spartan lineup immediately. He is a double threat as he should get the chance to play third in addition to helping out on the mound for the green and white. At third, Pokopec has good hands and a strong arm. When he is at the plate, he is a mature hitter with power to the gaps. On the mound, Pokopec is a strike thrower that has a good understanding of how to pitch. Pokopec is a business management major and is the son of Jim and Denise Chapman.
