Many of the Brescia Bearcats have headed out to summer leagues looking to improve heading into the upcoming fall. The Bearcats currently have seven players playing in summer leagues all over the country and in Canada. The Bearcats have also seen three of their four coaches take rolls on summer baseball teams, including Head Coach Aaron Biddle.
Biddle is spending his second consecutive season as the Head Coach for the Owensboro Oilers of the Ohio Valley League. Biddle considers this an opportunity to try new ideas and hopefully learn some things from the players at other schools.
"This is a great opportunity for me to learn some new things and try new ideas. With a roster full of guys at other schools, you get to hear a lot about what they do at their schools. What their programs are like, what drills they do or like or don't like. What their strength and conditioning programs are like. So many people do things differently and there's a lot to learn for everyone. Myself included," says Coach Biddle.
Joining Biddle with the Oilers is RHP/1B Christian McHatton. McHatton was much improved on the mound as a sophomore and is looking to continue that improvement, as well as, work on some things at the plate.
Assistant Coaches Addison Rouse and Shawn Aubin are also spending time coaching this summer. Coach Aubin is the Hitting Coach for the Wichita Aviators in the Walter Johnson League and Coach Rouse is spending his summer in Medicine Hat Canada.
Other players playing this summer include LHP Chad Cox of the Madisonville Pirates in the Ohio Valley League, RHP Jackson Miles of the Syracuse Junior Chiefs in the New York Collegiate League, IF Eduardo Bermudez-Rosso is with the Guaynabo Pirates in Puerto Rico, Nick Woltermann is with the Meridians CRC in the Northern Kentucky Amateur Baseball League, IF Nate Crocker is playing in the Porterville College Summer League and C Hank Stewart is with the Moosejaw Miller Express of the Western Major Baseball League.
