The premier summer league, Cape Cod, has 3 TUlane players - Gozzo, Pellerin, and Chooch. Most likely, Red Sox and Chooch come to terms, but you never know. Gozzo could pick up a free agent offer, but at least Pellerin is too young to go pro.

Official site showed all of the other players out west, and in the Northeast Baseball league. Hopefully give these guys some additional experience, and exposure to other players, and coaches.

H. Haskin is starting tonight in CF for the Newport Gulls, the same team Hoese played for last summer I believe in the New England Collegiate league. Haskin has knocked in 2 RBI on the Gulls' young season (their 2nd game is on-going as we type).

Also 2 of our commits are playing in the Cape, and one of them is Australian/Canadian and when asked about being drafted, mentioned something along the lines of that might put University on hold for now.

New Zealand, but close. :)
Hope Benoit makes it to campus. living with Pelly on the Cape will hopefully help that.

Ben Thompson, the New Zealand native who has been playing ball in the USA and Canada the past 4 years is actually playing this summer in a Canadian league with the Okotoks Dogs. I don't know for sure who the second signee other than Donovan Benoit is playing this summer on the Cape. As was said earlier that season starts early next week and most of the teams don't post rosters til opening day. Cellucci is there -- with the Wareham team -- and I am hoping Boston doesn't meet his price to go pro so he can return to improve his stock with the Wave and get drafted higher next year. Boston signed only 20 of their 30 Day 3 picks last season and just 12 the draft the year before that.

Pitcher/Wave recruit Chris Holcomb is the second new pitcher for Tulane who is playing on the Cape this summer...; He is with Cotuit Kettleers.

I’ve learned not to pay too much attention to all these summer league stats. The Cape Cod is very good competition, some of these other leagues, not so much.

btw, as expected Ben Thompson the New Zealand native pitcher signed with the Cleveland Indians last night, so he won't be attending Tulane. He was picked in Rd 28 out of Chandler-Gilbert JC in Arizona.

Visual, you would be surprised. My boys played in the Norttwoods, California Collegiate League, Coastal Plains League, and local college summer leagues in both Charlotte and Houston. Good baseball players are everywhere. Just look at the draft. The important thing is you get your players into those leagues. Most kids don’t want to play summer ball. Sixty days in a row of playing baseball games after the college season is a grind. But with the extra reps, you will get better, especially plate discipline. You cannot beat playing live. It helps your game develop, and there are very good players in those leagues.

Look how good our pitchers did in their summer league’s last summer and then look at how they performed during the regular season. It’s probably not a coincidence

Collin Burns was player of the game for his team last night. Went 2-5 with a 3-Run HR.

Plates must be wider in some of these leagues

Important for development. Important for hitters to learn plate discipline. Important for pitchers to learn how to get outs. Baseball is meant be played every day for several reasons, and these summer leagues provide that venue. Plus you are usually playing in front of bigger crowds, especially in the Northwoods and the CPL. These summer leagues wouldn’t exist if they were detrimental to player development.

And in some of these leagues, the coaching is better than the coaching they get in college. Ask Jeremy, Country, and Lex who was the best coach they ever played for and they will all tell you Bill Pintard. Who is Bill Pintard? He is the long time coach of the Santa Barbara Foresters. He has won more games than any other coach that has coached in these summer collegiate leagues. He has also been a scout for the Yankees for 20+ years. Maybe our pitchers had success because the overall environment was better.

Nobody has even remotely suggested that they were detrimental to development. However, I don't think you have to play in a summer league to get better. We've seen guys not play and come back more improved than anyone else on the team before. More than one way to get better in the off season.
All I'm saying is that the stats arent always worth paying attention to. We had a couple of guys last year, that could not even get on the mound on our very bad pitching staff in 2018 and then they dominated a league in the same Summer. I'm not even sure what you mean about the overall environment being better.

There is no mention of Price playing for any summer league team.

Does that mean he is gone?

Maybe he is in Summer School or is trying to recover from an injury and was told not to throw this summer.

A Connor Pellerin video is featured in this Cape Cod Breakdown tweet from D1. I believe the article is on a pay site but wanted to post it since they featured Connor in the tweet
