Aggies spread out for summer league assignments

June 21, 2017

DAVIS, Calif. -- With final exams coming to a close, members of the UC Davis baseball team will pack their bags and spread out to compete in various summer leagues across the country.

In all, 19 players will compete in seven different leagues this summer, a majority of whom will be staying somewhat local to play on teams in Northern California. Two more Aggies, Ryan Anderson and Brad Pluschkell, will head to the Northwoods League, while four UC Davis players -- Cameron Briggs, Chris Brown, Blake Hannah, and Ryan Hooper -- are listed on rosters for the Gresham GreyWolves and Victoria HarbourCats of the West Coast League. Colton Evans and Matt Smith will make the farthest trips of any Aggie, heading to New York to play for the Elmira Pioneers and Geneva Red Wings, respectively, in the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League.

Brown (Gresham) and Hannah (Victoria) will be returning to their respective teams for the second straight season.

A full listing of this year's summer league assignments is listed below.
