SONOMA, Calif.– Ahead of the league opener tonight in Martinez, the Sonoma Stompers Professional Baseball Club has released its full 2018 roster.

In addition to exciting newcomers like 2017 Defensive Center Fielder of the Year Miles Williams, the Stompers are proud to bring back several Sonoma stalwarts.

Infielders Daniel Comstock, Kevin Farley, Daniel Baptista and Eddie Mora-Loera all started for the Stompers last season and will join the team once again in 2018. Outfielder Marcus Bradley and pitchers D.J. Sharabi, Zack Wendorf, Jacob Cox, Dominic Topoozian and Juan Espinosa also return.

Sonoma also welcomes newcomers like infielder Rayson Romero out of Sonoma State and former Royals prospect Patrick Conroy. Conroy, a two-time Pacific Association Pitcher of the Year, will serve as the team’s pitching coach.

The roster under first year manager Zack Pace also includes pitchers Daniel Bodishbaugh, Brandon Erickson, Ethan Gibbons, Robbie Kidd, Robert Maislin and Vijay Patel. Rounding out the Opening Day roster are Mitchell Ho, Kenny Meimerstorf, Wesley Phillips and Kam Stewart.

Kelsie Whitmore and Stacy Piagno will be trying out for Team USA women’s baseball this summer starting June 7. Piagno threw a seven-inning, one-run game en route to becoming only the third woman since the 1950’s to pick up a win in a men’s professional baseball league last season.

Join broadcaster Nick Badders for the league opener against Martinez at 6:30 p.m. on the Stompers Mixlr Channel.
