Happy Tuesday, everyone, from the world-wide headquarters (WWHQ) of the Corvallis Knights, your 2016-2017 West Coast League champions!
University of California-Irvine pitchers Miles Glazier (pictured, above) and Cole Spear will return to the Knights for the 2018 season, coach Brooke Knight announced Monday.
A junior left-hander from San Marino High School in San Marino, Calif., Glazier was 3-0, 1.69 in 14 appearances for the Knights in 2017. He struck out 13 in 21.1 innings, all in relief.
He was 0-0, 6.94 in 21 games for the Anteaters in 2017, with 12 strikeouts in 23.1 innings. Glazier went 2-0, 3.95 in 26 games in 2016, with 21 strikeouts in 27.1 innings.
A right-hander from Orange Lutheran HS in Orange, Calif., Spear was 3-2, 6.60 in nine games for the Knights in 2017, with 34 strikeouts in 30 innings. He was 4-6, 6.71 for the Anteaters in 2017 as a freshman.
Glazier and Spear are the seventh and eighth members of the 2017 West Coast League championship team to sign for the 2018 season. They join previous signees Jacob Fricke (Western Oregon), Kolby Somers (Oregon), Darren Nelson (Cal Poly), Connor Redmond (Cal Poly), Trevor Wells (Linn-Benton CC) and Chad Stevens (Portland).
We released our 2018 schedule on Monday. It features 32 home dates at Goss Stadium.
We open the season with our seventh annual Science, Engineering & Art Day game against the Portland Sea Dogs at Goss Stadium at 10 a.m. Wednesday, May 30. We then hit the road for Kelowna, B.C., to open WCL play against the Falcons on June 6.
We start the WCL home schedule on Tuesday, June 12, against the Wenatchee AppleSox.
See you at Goss! Opening day is just 198 days away!
