CURRENT LION SPOTLIGHT
Fletcher has batted .297 with 19 runs scored, four doubles, six stolen bases and 16 RBI playing shortstop for the Orleans Firebirds in the Cape Cod League. The native of Cypress, Calif. has struck out only 12 times in 118 at bats against some of the best pitching that summer leagues have to offer. For his efforts, he will start for the East Division at second base during July 27's Cape Cod League All-Star game.
Jack and Arriaga both appeared for the Hamptons Collegiate Baseball League North All-Stars this summer, serving as teammates for the Shelter Island Bucks. Arriaga has pitched to a 0-1 record and a 2.62 ERA over seven starts and 37.2 innings of work so far this summer. The native of Rancho Cucamonga, Calif. tossed a perfect frame in the All Star Game on July 12, striking out all three batters he faced. Jack has hit .253 with seven doubles, 16 runs scored, two homers, five stolen bases and 17 RBI over 31 games this summer.
Erickson has been on a tear all summer playing for the Long Beach Legends Red team, earning a spot on the Orange County Collegiate League North All-Star Team. The right-hand hitting outfielder has batted .379 with 21 runs scored, three doubles, a homer and 12 RBI over 24 games played. He is also 11-for-13 in stolen base attempts this summer.
Although Erickson has already appeared in an All-Star Game, he will now represent the OCCL against the Southern California Collegiate Baseball League All-Stars on July 26. Hoping to be a part of that All-Star squad is Glomb after pitching to a 1-2 record and a 1.80 ERA over 10 appearances and 25 innings of work for the Inland Valley Pirates. The right-hander has struck out 22 while walking only eight over the summer.
