Keith Landers, a 6’7 lefty out of St. Peter’s Marian High School in Worcester MA has signed his letter of intent to play with the Louisville Cardinals in the 2009 season. Landers was a standout pitcher for the Worcester LLWS team in 2002 where they advanced to the US Championship game. Landers had a subpar record of 1-4 with a 1.97 ERA in his junior season and as a sophomore went 5-1 with a 0.92 ERA. He received a full athletic scholarship to play for the Cardinals spurning offers from Boston College and St. John’s. Landers is expected to compete for a spot in the starting rotation in 2009 as the Cardinals are trying to rebuild a pitching staff which brought them to the CWS in 2007.
