Youth Abundant in AppleSox Latest Roster Additions

April 27, 2019 - West Coast League (WCL) - Wenatchee AppleSox News Release

With temperatures soaring and the Apple Blossom Festival in full swing, residents of the Wenatchee Valley can nearly taste the upcoming summer.

The Wenatchee AppleSox continue their long preparation for the historic 20th season in team history by adding to their roster. After a flurry of additions across the past two weeks, the AppleSox have now increased their roster size to 22 members. Over the last two weeks, head coach Kyle Krustangel announced 11 new players from six different schools. The coaching staff is excited about the talent coming to Wenatchee this summer.

"We've got a super talented roster," AppleSox assistant coach Cash Ulrich said last week on KOHO 101. "It's hard to know who's going to be your guys before the season but there's a ton of talent. It kind of always works itself out through the summer. The guys that really stick with the process and show up every day ready to work throughout the summer seem to be the guys that have a lot of success."
