#5 Steve Sweat
JR, 5-9, 165
Hometown: Lexington, Tenn.
Previous School: Lexington HS

Coach’s Comments. Steve is looking to match or better the offensive numbers of a very successful freshman season. He moved from third base as a freshman to shortstop as a sophomore, and now looks to take over the second base postion as a junior. Has also seen time as a reliever during his career. His potent bat earns his spot in the lineup for the Bulldogs.

Union Career. 2003...hit .315 with 57 hits, 16 doubles, 3 triples, 2 homeruns, and 34 RBI. 2004...hit .304 with 8 doubles, 2 homeruns, and 18 RBI.

Before Union. Steve was best high school player in West Tennessee as a senior in 2002. He hit and pitched for Lexington’s state championship in 2002 and in addition to his state title in 2002, he also set new school records for homeruns in a game with 4. In each of his final three season’s of high school, he was all-district, all-region, and all-state. Hit over .500 for his career and had an ERA under 2.00.
