Ashwaubenon, Wis.- The Green Bay Booyah have announced the addition of two Seattle Redhawk right handers by signing juniors Tyler Yeh and Nathan Bonck.
Yeh, a 6-foot-0 closer out of Los Angeles, California, led the Redhawks with 32 appearances and was second in saves with three. As a sophomore, Yeh compiled an ERA of 4.99 in 57.2 innings pitched. He struck out 52 hitters and walked 23. Yeh has been described as a competitive pitcher who will work mainly with a power sinker in the low 90s and a slider. He will be a vital piece of the backend of Seattle’s bullpen this spring.
Bonck, a 6-foot-5 swingman from Ketchikan, Alaska, is coming off a sophomore season where he went 4-2 with a 4.50 ERA. The tall righty struck out 25 batters while working 26 innings last year for Seattle. He had an impressive high school career that was capped off by him being named Alaska Gatorade Player of the Year in 2015. Bonck is a versatile pitcher who could serve as a starter or work out of the bullpen for the Redhawks and expects to be a big-time contributor in the coming months.
The Booyah are adding two pitchers with invaluable experience on the mound from a competitive Western Athletic Conference. Seattle opens up their season on Friday, February 15th against UNLV in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The Green Bay Booyah open up the season on Tuesday, May 28th at 7:05 in Traverse City, Michigan. Capital Credit Union Park will host the first Booyah home game against the Wisconsin Rapids Rafters on Saturday June 1st at 7:05.
