Dalton Chandler Commits to Play Baseball at CS Northridge

Lamar High School senior to be Dalton Chandler, who has pitched on the varsity level for the Savage baseball team his entire high school career, has officially announced that he will be attending Cal State University at Northridge to continue his baseball venture after graduating Lamar High School. Chandler made the announcement via his twitter account on July 27.

Since throwing a no-hitter against Florence in his Lamar varsity debut on March 21, 2015, Savage Nation has seen what has made Chandler a formidable force for opponents every spring. In three years with LHS, Chandler has struck out 138 hitters in 86.1 innings pitched and compiled a solid 3.24 ERA.

This past spring in his junior season, Chandler worked his way back from injury to help lead the Savages to a 20-3 overall record and a berth in the 3A State Tournament. At 6’4 and 225 pounds, his frame has allowed him to establish a punishing fastball that nears 90 mph.

And now, after some years of traveling the country in the summer months and establishing himself as a legitimate prospect, he will be taking his talents to Northridge, California, just north of the Hollywood hills and compete for the CSU-N Matadors, coached by Greg Moore who will enter his fifth season at the helm next spring. CSU-N competes in the Big West Conference at the NCAA Division I level.

KLMR Sports Director Ethan Denton caught up with Chandler and they discussed Chandler’s decision to go to CSU-N, what the recruiting process has been like, plus…some fun talking about their beloved Kansas City Royals. You can listen to the interview in its entirety below.

  1. This was a great interview and I would like to thank KLMR for their broadcast of the savages games. Dalton is my grandson and I live in Georgia and was able to follow the savages and dalton all season picking up their games here streaming. This last season was very exciting and Eathon made it fun to listen to. I am extremely proud of Dalton and the team. I look forward to next season and listening to the games again. Go savages.

    Thanks
