The Corvallis Knights have signed three players to 10-day contracts for the 2019 season, manager Brooke Knight announced recently.
The newest Knights are Western Oregon sophomore infielder James Anderson, Willamette sophomore infielder Sean Little, and Clackamas Community College sophomore outfielder/catcher Cooper Wohlgemuth.
Anderson and Little are Corvallis natives and played together at Crescent Valley High School. Wohlgemuth is a graduate of Roosevelt High in Portland who played at George Fox in 2018.
The 6-foot-1, 195-pound Anderson hit .067 (1-15) in nine games as a WOU freshman in 2018, with no homers or RBIs. He hit .250 (4-16) in seven games with the Knights as a 10-day signee in 2018, with a homer and two RBIs.
He lettered three times at CV, was team captain as a junior and senior, and was a Mid-Willamette Conference all-star and first-team 5A all-state as a senior.
Little hit .458 (11-24) in 10 games for the Bearcats in 2018, with three doubles and seven RBIs. He was supposed to play for the Knights in 2018 but was sidelined by an injury.
A 5-foot-9, 160-pound middle infielder, Little earned MWC postseason honors as a senior, junior and sophomore and was 5A all-state as a senior and junior. He was runner-up for MWC Player of the Year honors and captained the baseball and basketball teams a senior.
A 6-1, 160-pound right-hander, Wohlgemuth played in three games for GFU in 2018 but did not have an at-bat. He scored two runs.
