CHILLICOTHE, Ohio - The Chillicothe Paints, presented by Adena Health System, add to their 2019 roster with Northern Kentucky University middle infielder Collin Luty.
A 5-foot-9, 185-pound native of Milwaukee, Wis., Luty spent his first two college seasons at Wabash Valley College (NJCAA). As a freshman, he hit .246 with 10 RBIs in 25 games. As a sophomore in 2017, Luty starred for the Warriors. He started 33 games and played in 43, hit .343 with three doubles, two triples and 24 RBIs.
