California Baptist University head coach Gary Adcock, former Oilers head coach (1999-2000) and assistant (1997-1998), has sent the Oilers a trio of players for the 2015 Alaska Baseball League season.

Pitchers Austin Zimarik (Yucca Valley, California) and Adam Hofacket (Corona, California) are juniors and will be joined by infielder/outfielder Brian Ruhm (redshirt sophomore, Yucaipa, California). Zimarik is used primarily in relief, and Hofacket is a starting pitcher for Adcock’s Lancers. Adcock, who is in his 12th year at the helm of the Cal Baptist baseball program, is the school’s all-time leader for most games won. He has 10 postseason berths in his first 11 seasons and has had 12 players selected in the Major League Baseball draft. Adcock also holds the Oilers record with a .676 winning percentage, and guided the Oilers to a runner-up finish in the 1999 National Baseball Congress World Series.

The Peninsula Oilers Baseball Club is again offering three $1,000 scholarships for graduates of Nikiski, Soldotna and Kenai Central high schools. The deadline for applying is 4 p.m. April 24. To apply, contact your school counselor or go to the Oilers website at www.oilersbaseball.com.
