St. Charles Catholic baseball standout Cade Pregeant signs with Delgado
Delgado continues its outstanding run of signing local talent.
The Dolphins have signed St. Charles Catholic star Cade Pregeant to a baseball scholarship.
Pregeant (5-8, 175) was outstanding for the Comets this past season, batting .437 (45-for-103) with 12 doubles, three triples, 18 RBI, 58 stolen bases (in 60 attempts) and 47 runs scored. Pregeant had an impressive .560 on-base percentage and was the district 11-2A Most Valuable Player, leading the Comets to the Division III state championship game.
“What I love about Cade is he is a two-sport guy,” St. Charles baseball and football coach Wayne Stein said. “Now that baseball is it, the sky’s the limit for him to continue to improve. I think he’s far from tapped out. He made 17 in the middle of the football season so he is very young. He’s continuing to grow and mature physically. For us, he was the ultimate competitor. He was the alpha male on campus.”
Pregeant made everyone around him better.
“He made everyone play to a higher and tougher standard,” Stein said. “I’m really excited for him and his family. They did it the right way. He can play anywhere on the diamond except probably first base. He can play anywhere on the infield, he’s not opposed to playing the outfield.”
Pregeant defines the description of a complete player.
“Cade Pregeant is a baseball player,” Stein said. “He can run, hit for average, hit for little power and he even pitched for us injured to try to get us a state championship. He played defensive back and he brings a football toughness to the game. His best baseball is ahead of him. He’s a winner. He’s the ultimate St. Charles Catholic Comet.”
