Ashland's Logan Salow Signs Baseball Letter of Intent For The University of Kentucky

Ashland’s Logan Salow Signs Letter of Intent to UK
By: Jeanie Stadelmeyer
Tuesday, December 4, 2012, was a big day for Val and Mike Salow’s youngest son. A good crowd of family and friends was on hand in the Blazer Cafeteria, to watch Logan Salow sign his Letter of Intent to play Baseball at the University of Kentucky.
Logan went for a visit at UK and decided a few days later that he wanted to go there. Then he called Wildcat Baseball Assistant Coach Brian Green who helped him get the process started. He is going to be a preferred walk-on for the Wildcats.
Logan has been playing sports for a long time. He has played baseball the longest, starting at 5 years of age. He has had a lot of coaches, in that 13 year span, including Jeff Wilcox, Dwight Walters, John Vincent, Tim Rice, and Mike Delaney. He has been on 10 different All-Star Teams, every year since he was eight. He has even been on a traveling team, coached by Roger Hamilton. He has won a lot of awards in baseball, all district teams, all regional teams, and All Star awards.
He has so far started 3 years for the Tomcats as a Left-handed pitcher and center fielder. He helped the Tomcats get to the State Baseball Tournament last year, a feat he hopes to repeat. He pitched against Russell in Relief in the Regional Tournament at Bath Co. last year, and turned around two days later and was the starting pitcher against Boyd. He was the winning pitcher, and you couldn’t have wiped the smile off his face after the game, even on the bus parade around town later that night.
Salow always has a smile on his face, and a carefree look that belies the intensity he has. It has been said that having Logan on the field is like having an extra coach out there. He is very mature, and wants to help the team win. Even if that means he doesn’t get the pass, or the layup or the catch.
Logan has shown the coaches here at Ashland that he can, and will play any position, and proved his worth by being a three sport letterman. In addition to Baseball, he also plays Basketball (starter for three years), and Football (starter for two years.) He is a Point Guardfor “Buddy” Biggs and plays Wide Receiver, Defensive Back, and Punter for Leon Hart.
Logan just finished up his final year as a football player, and is rehabbing to start playing basketball. Along with 10 other Tomcats, he was named to the All-Area Football team. He also won best Defensive Back, and Team Captain Award, as well as the Doug Childers Scholarship.
Apparently playing sports is not the only thing he is serious about. He puts the same intensity and work ethic into his classes at Blazer, sporting a 4.1 GPA. He is in the National Honor Society, the Spanish Honorary Club and is the VP of the FCA Club as well.
Logan is one of three brothers to play Ashland Baseball, and states that his favorite Ashland Baseball memory so far isn’t the tournaments, or the awards, but being able to play with his big brother Corey, his freshman year at Ashland. Logan said his father, Mike is the greatest influence in his life, always throwing and passing with him.
Congratulations, Logan and good luck in the upcoming Basketball, and Baseball seasons and, we hope to see you pitching for UK next year.
