Happy Tuesday, everyone, from the world-wide headquarters (WWHQ) of the Corvallis Knights, your 2016-2017 West Coast League champions!
Alum Max Beatty (2010-12) pitched a complete game for the Adelaide Bite in its 4-2 win over Canberra on Saturday in Australia. He allowed two runs and five hits, and struck out eight while not issuing a walk.
The former Pacific Lutheran star, pictured above in his final season with the Knights, pitched in the Chicago White Sox organization last season. He originally signed with San Diego. Please click here for more on that story.
Max is one of two alums playing in the ABL this year. Former Oregon State infielder Carter Bell (2009) is with the Brisbane Bandits.
We are thrilled to introduce the perfect gift for the baseball fan in your family, the Knights Holiday Home Run Package. For more information, please click here or call (541) 752-5656.

The Portland Pickles have named Justin Barchus as their new manager. He managed the Gresham GreyWolves to a 46-61 record over the past two seasons in the West Coast League.
Before his time in Gresham, Barchus managed the Klamath Falls Gems, formerly of the WCL. At the time of his hiring in Klamath Falls, he was the youngest coach in WCL history.
Barchus was also the head coach of Capital City Select, an 18U college prep team, where he won a total of 206 games over seven seasons. He is a three-sport graduate of McNary High School in Keizer, Ore.
That’s all for today. Have a great week and we will see you again on Friday.
