The Cowlitz Black Bears sign two Pilots. We welcome back right-handed pitcher Joey Morris. Also signed from the bluff, is catcher Dutton Elske.
Morris went 2-0 in 12 appearances for Cowlitz in 2017. “We are excited to be able to create depth and experience to our staff,” Coach Grady Tweit said. Joey is freshman from Vacaville, CA. He has made three appearances, 1 hit and no runs allowed in the young season.
Dutton begins his sophomore season behind the plate for the Pilots. The Lake Oswego catcher is off to a good start in 2018. “You, the fans, are going to enjoy watching him work behind the dish,” GM Appleby said.
Swing by the office to get your season tickets so you can help welcome Joey and Dutton personally to Cowlitz this summer.
