Texarkana, TX - Texarkana announced the addition of two pitchers from Dordt University, sophomore Kevin Fokkema, and junior Isaac Vander Hart.

Fokkema was also a part of the 2017 Tahoma squad, where the Bears made a state tournament appearance. Fokkema has a strong arm and will be a good addition to the Twins bullpen for the 2020 season.
