Fifteen Appalachian State University baseball student-athletes are participating in NCAA-sanctioned collegiate summer leagues across the nation this offseason. The Mountaineers playing summer ball stretch from Georgia to Alaska.
Highlighting Appalachian State’s summer ball participants are infielders Dillon Dobson and Noah Holmes, who are members of the Peninsula Oilers in the prestigious Alaska Baseball League. Other Mountaineers spread across the nation in some of college baseball’s top summer leagues include pitcher outfielder Brandon Burris (Alexandria Aces — Cal Ripken Collegiate Baseball League), Jamie Nunn (Madison Mallards — Northwoods League), infielder/outfielder Michael Pierson (Utica Brewers — Perfect Game Collegiate League), pitcher Jeffrey Springs (Plymouth Pilgrims — New England Collegiate Baseball League), outfielder Preston Troutman (West Virginia Miners — Prospect League) and outfielder Tyler Zupcic (North Shore Navigators — Futures Collegiate Baseball League).
Closer to home, three Apps are playing in the Southern Collegiate Baseball League (Rob Howard, Zach Hummel and Caleb McCann), two are participating in the Valley Baseball League (Chad Farmer and Josh Zumbrook) and one Mountaineer is represented in the Coastal Plain League (Taylor Thurber) and Sunbelt Baseball League (Blake Burkett).
Additionally, freshman all-American Jaylin Davis is a member of the highly regarded Cincinnati-based Midland Redskins, which will compete for the Connie Mack World Series title this summer.
