The Thunder Bay Border Cats have signed local talent to their collegiate roster.
Lucas Scocchia and Danny McInnis, both attended St. Ignatius High School and our graduates of the Northwest Slam baseball program under current Lakehead University Thunderwolves coach and former Chicago Cubs farmhand Jason Hart.
According to the Border Cats, Scocchia and McInnis have signed temporary contracts.
Scocchia, a pitcher for Oakland University, underwent rotator cuff surgery in 2012 and missed the entire season. He returned to the bump in 2013 where he went 0-4 in 13 appearances recording 14 strikeouts in 23 innings. In 2014, after nine appearances, his record sits at 0-1 with an ERA a tad over 4.00 (4.05).
McInnis has just completed his freshman season at Division 2, Angelo State University. He drew a lot of interest from south of the border (specifically Texas) after he threw a no-hitter at a Perfect Game Showcase tournament in Cedar Rapids. McInnis appeared in two games, striking out two.
The Border Cats season begins on May 27 at Port Arthur Stadium where they take on the St. Cloud Rox. Please visit the Border Cats website during the season to follow the progress of the Cats along with these talented Thunder Bay players.
