Saline High School senior Mike Monahan is one of seven Hornet baseball players who put pen to paper Wednesday, the first day of college signing season. Monahan, a catcher, will continue his studies and baseball playing days at Eastern Michigan University.

"He’s a left-handed hitting catcher with good size. He improved tremendously. He did a lot of bullpen work with Coach Welton and got better and better," Saline coach Scott Theisen said.
