SANTA BARBARA, Calif. – 19 members of the UC Santa Barbara baseball team will be participating in collegiate leagues around the country this summer.
Gauchos can be seen as far north as Alaska, as far east as Massachusetts, and as far south as San Diego.
Junior right-handed pitcher Noah Davis, a frontline starter for UCSB the past two seasons, has arguably had the most impressive start to summer ball by a Gaucho, as he has allowed just one earned run in each of his two starts for Cotuit of the Cape Cod League, the most prestigious summer collegiate league in the nation. His opening performance drew a strong review ($) from D1Baseball prospect writer Frankie Piliere.
Other Gauchos off to hot starts include sophomore catcher Eric Yang (.393 batting average for Medford of the Great West League), redshirt freshman Nick Moroney (.429 batting average for Victoria of the West Coast League), and sophomore outfielder Tommy Jew (.368 batting average for Mystic of the New England Collegiate League).
Summer assignments and stats for the rest of the Gauchos can be found below. The stat links will be updated daily throughout the summer.
