Church Dismissed from Baseball SquadSeptember 16, 2004 · MT Media Relations
Church posted a 5-1 mark with a 3.81 ERA last season, missing the first month of the 2004 campaign because of suspension for violating team rules. The Soddy Daisy High School product made 23 appearances in his two seasons as a Blue Raider.
"BJ has been dismissed from the team for consistently violating team rules," Peterson said. "I tried to discipline BJ on several occasions, but nothing seemed effective and this last time was the final straw."
Middle Tennessee also lost pitcher Ryan Moore this week, who withdrew from school, citing a lack of desire to play baseball.
