The Demon Deacons open the 2017 NCAA Regional vs. UMBC
Walter on Harvey
"Logan is a great defensive catcher with a high baseball IQ. Our pitchers love throwing to him and he does a great job controlling the running game. Offensively he is a gap-to-gap hitter who has a knack for having good at-bats in big situations. He'll split time behind the plate with Ben Breazeale and DH some when he doesn't catch."
