Around the Bases

There have been four recent commitments on the baseball scene, including two talented prospects headed to Berkeley. Also get updated on the newest recruits for Sacramento State and Harvard.
Jesuit missed the playoffs this past spring, but one thing became clear during the high school season. Tanner Dodson was a player and the recruiting interest backed it up. A two-way player for the Marauders, Dodson hit 90 MPH from the right side at the NorCal World Series and gives a switch hitting option in the outfield. He was the top player for Jesuit in the spring and was named to the 2015 Baseball Watch List.
Logan 2016 right-handed pitcher Rogelio Reyes was the top surprise from June's NorCal World Series when he topped out at 87 MPH on the opening night. He was eventually named to the underclass All-Tournament squad before committing to Cal. He is the third local 2016 commit for the Golden Bears. The others are Vintage's Jared Horn and Carrillo's Andrew Vaughn.
Campolindo 2015 infielder Ben Skinner gave a verbal commitment to Harvard earlier this month. Skinner is a solid infielder at 5-foot-9 and 160 pounds and a right-handed bat. Skinner will mark the fourth straight year the Cougars will have at least one Division I bound senior. It is also a recruiting win for the Crimson to come to the opposite coast and pick up Skinner.
Sacramento State made the NCAA Tournament this year and shows no signs of slowing down under head coach Reggie Christiansen. The Hornets have picked up a commitment from Serra 2015 catcher James Outman. He recorded a 1.95 pop time at the NorCal World Series, according to the event's website. It was the second best time at the event.
