Skyline grad signs with Bellingham Bells
January 24, 2012
Seattle University catcher Ryan Somers, a former Skyline High School baseball standout, has signed with the Bellingham Bells for the 2012 season.
The Bells are a summer, wood-bat, collegiate baseball team that plays in the West Coast League.
Somers is currently a redshirt sophomore at Seattle University. He redshirted for the Redhawks in 2010 before becoming a regular in 2011, when he played in 40 games, starting 27 of them. During the summer of 2011 with the Bells, he played in 10 games and hit .280 with a double and two RBIs.
Bellingham pitching coach Jim Clem is looking forward to another summer with Somers on the team.
“Ryan joined us late last summer and played well during the short time he was with us. We think highly of Ryan and are pleased to have him back on our roster. He’s an athletic kid that gives us a lot of flexibility due to his ability to play multiple positions,” Clem said.
