Gillespie commits to Georgia

by Jeremy Jayaweera

2022 Blake Gillespie has announced his commitment to the University of Georgia. During our annual fall trip, the Nationals visited Foley Field and played the Dawgs under the lights. Blake competed with Team Elite this fall, our partners down south where he got many looks from many schools. Ultimately, he chose Georgia. Coach Stricklin is one of the best guys in College baseball and the fit for Blake seems almost perfect. 

Blake started playing baseball only a short 4-5 years ago, as he began his athletic career in soccer. Former owner of the Nats, Shawn Gillespie also had a big impact on Blake's development throughout the years. Blake has grown tremendously in the weight room and on the field; we could not be more proud of his accomplishment. To play in the SEC is a wild dream but Blake has made it a reality through hard work and determination. GO DAWGS!
