Moses Lake’s Dax Lindgren commits to Gonzaga

Print Article

MOSES LAKE — Moses Lake High School’s Dax Lindgren made a big decision Wednesday, committing to Gonzaga University to play baseball after his upcoming senior year.

Lindgren said his future coach said he was excited to have him as his first baseman soon, and possibly have the chance to pitch for the team as well.

Lindgren is currently playing this summer for the Columbia Basin Riverdogs. Lindgren played first base and pitched for the Chiefs this past year on the way to the school’s first state title since 1981.

Lindgren talked with the Gonzaga head coach on Wednesday, and after receiving an offer, told him “he’d like to be a Zag.”

“It was pretty cool to talk to him and know that he wanted me to be a part of the program,” Lindgren said. “It was cool because I had my family right around me.”

Lindgren’s father and Moses Lake head coach, Donnie Lindgren, has been coaching him seen he first started playing, having his son watching at practices while he coached Big Bend Community College.

The Gonzaga commit said the move is a dream come true for him.

“Ever since I was little, it’s been my dream to play college baseball,” Lindgren said. “I never thought I’d play Division I baseball.”

Going into his final season as a Chief, Lindgren said the commitment might change his approach to the season somewhat, but said he still wants to do everything he can for his team.

“I’m still gonna try and be a big part of this team next year, try and be a leader,” Lindgren said.

In the past two months, the Moses Lake player has fulfilled two dreams he’d been striving toward his whole life, a chance to play college baseball and a state title.

“If you would have told me this last year, I never would have believed you,” Lindgren said. “Everything is just perfect now.”
