So Cal Bombers sign Rodriguez & Lalonde

Yucaipa, CA

 

The So Cal Bombers are pleased to announce the signings of Landy Rodriguez and Adam Lalonde for the 2007 season. Rodriguez is a current, and Lalonde a former, member of the USA National team and played last season with the NY Patsy club in the ISC World Tournament.

 

At the recent Pan Am Qualifier event, Rodriguez hit .294 with 2 home runs and 5 RBI, while leading the USA team with a .725 slugging percentage. He also hit .500 in the WT with a homerun and 2 RBI.

 

Lalonde is one of the games fastest players and has a combined average of .282 over the past two WT with 5 HR’s, and is widely regarded as one of the best defensive CF’s in softball.  Adam is very familiar with many of the Bombers players and management, having helped them win a NAFA WT in 2004.

 

Head Coach Kelly McGiffin said he’s excited about these two additions and the Bomber’s roster as a whole.

 

“Going into the off season, one of our main goals was to add some hitters to the middle of our order and this really tops off that accomplishment. We’ve added key components like Potskin, Santillano and Crawford; and these additions really solidify our attack. Landy provides us another bat to complement the heart of the order and makes for a strong and deep offensive lineup.

 

Adding Lalonde to the top of our order allows us to use Ghostkeeper’s bat in other spots further solidifying the overall lineup. And with Lalonde and Pinocchio, it gives us what may be the two fastest men in softball. 

 

Defensively we are very solid up the middle with deep catching (Ghostkeeper, Box & Rodriguez); great speed and gloves at middle infield (Butler and Pinocchio) and of course in CF (Lalonde).  And our corners in both the outfield and infield are solid with any combination of Rodriguez, Mendibles, Devine, Porto, Santillano, Crawford, Parra and Potskin.

 

These two players give us great experience at the highest level and individuals that we think add value on and off the field.”

 

So Cal’s ownership, staff and players welcome Landy and Adam to the Bombers and look forward to a great 2007 season.
