From and

Three players from Cal State Monterey Bay have signed contracts to play for the Hawekeyes this season. They are from the same college as 2011 player Danny Nelson. Check out the article below posted on the college website:

SEASIDE, Calif. – Three Cal State Monterey Bay freshman baseball players have signed summer contracts with the Cooperstown Hawkeyes of the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League (PGCBL).

Ty Morris (Castroville/North Monterey County HS), Matt Urkami (San Jose/Branham) and Chris Blanton (Burlingame/Burlingame HS) have been invited to play for the 2012 Hawkeyes under the direction of coach Eric Coleman, the 2011 PGCBL Coach of the Year.

"We are thrilled to get some more great players from CSUMB Baseball,” Coleman said. “The coaches at CSUMB are some of the best in the nation and we are happy to continue this great relationship.  We expect big things from Ty, Matt, and Chris and we are excited to follow them as they help MB Baseball win a championship before they get here for the summer to help us win another one for the Hawkeyes."

Last summer, All-West Region selection Danny Nelson competed for the Hawkeyes.  Nelson was named a PGCBL All-Star. He was selected Team MVP after posting a .322 batting average with 48 runs, 36 hits and 11 doubles.  Nelson also stole 13 bases in 44 games.  The Hawkeyes won the West division of the PGCBL before falling in the first round of the playoffs.

"We are very excited to send a very talented group of young men to Cooperstown to play for the summer,” said CSUMB Head Coach Walt White. “Following what Danny did last summer, these young men will represent CSUMB Baseball the right way and continue to spread the word that we have great players here in Monterey Bay.  We are committed to sending our players all over the country to play against great competition and to represent our program. These three signing with Cooperstown really solidifies that point of emphasis."

The PGCBL is a premier collegiate summer league in upstate New York.  Competing alongside the Hawkeyes in the West Division is the Elmira Pioneers, Newark Pilots, and Watertown Wizards while the Albany Dutchman, Amsterdam Mohawks, Glens Fall Golden Eagles and Mohawk Valley DiamondDawgs compete in the East Division.

The Hawkeyes' home stadium is the historic Doubleday Field, one of the oldest baseball facilities in the country.
