Grafton, WI – The Lakeshore Chinooks have signed three more talented players for this summer’s squad with the addition of Duncan Davitt (Iowa), Cameron Hart (Lansing Community College), and Jake Thompson (Kentucky).
Duncan Davitt – Iowa
Duncan Davitt (RHP/FR) has made 13 appearances, including four starts, as a freshman for the Hawkeyes. The former all-state selection from Indianola, IA has impressed early in his career with a 5.34 ERA, including 36 strikeouts against 21 walks while holding opponents to a batting average of .274.
Cameron Hart (MIF/FR) is a tall, rangy shortstop from Armada, MI who was rated in the preseason as a Top 150 JUCO draft prospect by Perfect Game. Playing for the nationally-ranked Stars, Hart is hitting .351 in 31 games with eight home runs and a slugging percentage of .701. His potent bat will make him a key contributor early in the season after Lansing’s postseason run and his earned him a spot at the University of Michigan in 2019-20.
Jake Thompson – Kentucky
Jake Thompson (MIF/JR) will return to Lakeshore after playing almost every day with the team over the first month of the 2018 season and hitting .231 with a homer, a triple, and two doubles in 19 games. The former infielder from Albert Lea, MN and Palomar Junior College transferred to Kentucky, where after a good fall, was set back by injury and allowed to take a redshirt season. Eager to get on the field, Thompson will be an early contributor for the Chinooks.
The 2019 season and Summer of 19 is presented by Port Washington State Bank with the home opener set for May 30th at 6:35pm against the Wisconsin Woodchucks. Season tickets, group tickets, and single game tickets are all currently on sale.
