Loggers Add A Pair of Right-Handed Pitchers
La Crosse, Wis. – The La Crosse Loggers front office announced today that with the official signings of Logan Harasta (Buffalo) and Kyle Hill (Baylor) they have added a pair of right-handed pitchers to the roster.
Buffalo RHP, Logan Harasta will be joining us in La Crosse, Wis. this summer. The Webster, NY native is currently in the midst of his junior season. Harasta has a 1-2 record with a 3.71 ERA. In his 16 appearances and 26.2 innings pitched, he has allowed just 13 runs on 23 hits and impressively struck out 38. In 2016, Harasta was one of the best bullpen pitchers in the conference and is looking to be a potential closer for your 2017 La Crosse Loggers.
Kyle Hill, Baylor RHP will also be throwing in a La Crosse Loggers uniform for the 2017 summer. The sophomore has compiled a 3-3 record with a 3.08 ERA for the season. In his 25 appearances and 38.0 innings pitched, he has allowed 17 runs on 34 hits and totaled 47 strikeouts. Hill looks to make an impact with the 2017 La Crosse Loggers as he is a very versatile pitcher on the mound.
Harasta, Hill, and the rest of the Loggers will open their 2017 campaign at home on Tuesday, May 30 when they play host to the Duluth Huskies at 7:05 p.m. at the newly renovated Copeland Park. Season tickets, specialty ticket packages, and single game tickets are on sale now at LaCrosseLoggers.com or by calling the Loggers ticket office at 608-796-9553.
