The 2017 Cowlitz Black Bears excited to announce to the roster Derek Scott (So., Abilene Christian University) and Kevin West (Fr., UC-Riverside).
Scott (OF/P) played in 33 games and started 28 of last season for the Wildcats. He is off to great start for ACU this season, starting all 12 games for them and hitting .404 with 14 runs scored already. Derek was the Hitter of the Week for the Southland Conference this past week. He became the first ACU player to gather the honor in the Southland Conference, as the Wildcats are in the transition from NCAA D II to NCAA DI.
West (P) hard throwing freshman for the Highlanders. He comes to Riverside via Martin Luther King HS right down the street. UC-Riverside Coach LeBlanc, former manager of the Black Bears, is very on high on Kevin and what he will bring to the team.
