Nike Baseball UC Santa Barbara High School Players Camp
This summer, UC Santa Barbara hosts its first NIKE High School Players Baseball Camp! Directing the camp is Associate Head Coach, Tom Myers. 2008 marked another outstanding year for Myers' pitching staff with 3 Gaucho pitchers receiving MLB contract offers (Chuck Huggins - second time drafted as a Gaucho - Toronto Blue Jays, Jason Roenicke - Toronto Blue Jays and Kyle Brown - Seattle Mariners). In addition, sophomore hurler Mike Ford earned Second Team All-Big West honors as did Mike Martin while freshman pitcher Mario Hollands received Freshman Big West Pitcher of the Year. Hollands also garnered Freshman All-American honors from Collegiate Baseball and Louisville Slugger. The Gaucho pitching staff was ranked 61st in the country in team ERA.
