In-State Catcher Brody Dalton Commits to West Virginia
Three days after landing Oklahoma transfer Keegan Allen, West Virginia baseball lands in-state catcher Brody Dalton (6-foot-5, 183-pounds).
Dalton comes from Chapmanville, West Virginia which is just three hours from Morgantown, West Virginia. He received Class AA all-state baseball honors as a junior this past season. He’s a three-sport athlete who also plays football and basketball.

He hits from the left side of the plate, which is rare for a lefty. He does throw right handed and isn’t uniquely a catcher. In high school he has also seen time as a right-handed pitcher, outfielder and first baseman.
There aren’t many details on Dalton on Perfect Game. He isn’t rated and the website only lists a 78 mph fastball as his only pitch.
The baseball team has been busy on the recruiting trail over the past month landing seven recruits or transfers within the past three weeks including landing a relatively local 2025 recruit in Kaden Hathaway from Washington, Pennsylvania, a 45-minute drive from Morgantown.
The West Virginia baseball team is coming off a strong 33-22 (14-10 Big 12) season. The 14 Big 12 wins is the most the program has gotten since joining the conference in 2013.
