For the third year in a row, the Wenatchee Apple Sox college summer baseball team will have a Mount Si grad on its roster, thanks to a signing yesterday

Got another baseball item of note this morning. The West Coast League’s Wenatchee AppleSox yesterday announced the signing of pitcher Gavin Gorrell for this summer season. Gorrell, a 2017 Mount Si HS grad, this spring is participating with Boise State University’s baseball program as it gets set to debut next spring. As such he is redshirting this year but will be a sophomore next season.

Gorrell was one of three Boise players who signed with the Sox yesterday. With the signing, this will mark the third year in a row the team has had a Mount Si High School graduate play for them during the summer. 2015 alum Evan Johnson played two seasons ago with Wenatchee and last year, 2017 alum Mason Marenco participated with the team. Marenco this season will be playing for the Sox’s WCL rival Bellingham Bells.

The league is one of three college summer leagues that will be competing this summer around the Northwest, but perhaps the most well-run and well-known, as its commissioner, Rob Neyer, is a longtime baseball media personality, most recently with ESPN. The league has expanded for the coming season, with a team in Clark County in southwest Washington.

We will check around and see whether any other Valley players playing collegiately this spring will be playing for college summer teams.
