St. Mary’s College sophomore infielder Austin Piscotty of Pleasanton, California, has joined the “Peninsula’s team” for the 2016 season. Austin is the brother of current St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Stephen Piscotty, who was a member of the 2010 Oilers.

St. Mary’s teammate and sophomore right-handed pitcher Billy Oxford, of Peoria, Arizona, will also be joining the local team. Another new addition to the team is freshman right-handed pitcher Justin Montgomery, of Corona, California, who plays for former Oilers and current Cal Baptist University head coach Gary Adcock. The Lancers staff also includes assistant coach Jesse Zepeda, who was an infielder on the 1994 National Baseball Congress World Series Champion Peninsula Oilers.
