press release 510

MANKATO, MN—The Mankato MoonDogs, a member of the Northwood’s League, are excited to announce the addition of three pitchers to their 2016 roster. Sean Terres, North Dakota State University, Brett Newberg, Austin Peay, and Cooper Powell, Nevada, will be joining the MoonDogs’ 2016 pitching staff.

Sean Terres, RHP, is coming back to the Northwood’s League after pitching the 2014 season with the Alexandria Blue Anchors. A 2012 graduate from ROCORI High School, Terres is a native of Cold Spring, Minnesota and earned all-conference honors in both football (twice) and baseball. Terres was also part of the Class 4A State Championship team in 2011 while at ROCORI. His younger brother, Jeron, is also on the NDSU baseball team as a redshirt this season. So far this season, Terres has posted a 1.47 ERA with six saves and 21 strikeouts over 18.1 innings.

Brett Newberg is a 6’1” left-handed pitcher, and is one of three Austin Peay Governors joining the MoonDogs in their 15th season. Last season, as a senior at Moline High School, Moline, Illinois, Newberg finished his career with a record of 6-1 and a 0.94 ERA to go with with 74 strikeouts over 44.2 innings. That performance was enough to be named First-Team All-Western Big Six Conference. Newberg has a brother, Blake, who also plays baseball at Knox College. Newberg is 1-0 with 20 strikeouts over 17.2 innings pitched this season.

The third pitcher that the MoonDogs have added to their 2016 pitching staff is Cooper Powell, another 6’1” lefty. Powell didn’t see any action in 2015 as a redshirt freshman for the Wolfpack but was named the 2014 Nevada State Gatorade Player of the Year while posting a 9-1 record with a 2.95 ERA during his senior season at Centennial High School in Las Vegas. This season for the Wolfpack, Powell has yet to allow an earned run and is holding opponents to a .250 batting average.

The MoonDogs home opener is scheduled for Friday, June 3rd at 7:05 p.m. against the Rochester Honkers at Franklin Rogers Park. Season and single game tickets are now on sale, call 507-625-7047 or visit the MoonDogs’ office at 1221 Caledonia Street in Mankato for more information.
