For the second time this week, a Maine-Endwell baseball star has signed a Division One letter-of-intent.

Third baseman Ty Yesensky is headed to Virginia to play for Old Dominion.

Ty says he's had enough of the cold and is in search of warmer weather.

He also says, his ultimate goal is to play professionally and ODU gives him the best chance to get there.

"I feel like when I walked on that campus, I knew right when I got there, that this was the place for me," says Yesensky. "I mean, it was a combination of that, and then the warm weather and everything and the coaching staff really welcomed me in."

Ty says his final decision came down to Old Dominion and another Virginia school, Radford.
