The Oilers are pleased to announce signing of a trio of juniors from Louisiana Tech University, a Division I school located in Ruston, Louisiana, and a member of Conference USA.

Catcher Jonathan Washam, from Monroe, Louisiana, is the twin brother of 2015 Oilers infielder Jordan Washam. Infielder Marshall Bogg, whose home is Cleveland, Missouri, and Zack Hamilton, right-handed pitcher from Houston, Texas, also will be joining the Alaska Baseball League team for the 2016 season.

As the local team prepares for the upcoming season, there is still a need for a few more host families to house players. Players will be arriving the first week of June and will conclude the 2016 season the first week of August. During that period the team will be out of town for games nearly half of the time. See the 2016 season schedule on the Oilers website at oilersbaseball.com. Transportation to and from games and team events will be provided by the team when needed. For more information, contact Diana Tice at the Oilers office 907-283-7133, Ext. 0.

Oilers Corner is submitted by Mike Baxter, general manager of baseball operations who can be contacted at gm@oilersbaseball.com.
