Hess back on the Seals mound!
Oh yeah he is! The Seals announced today that last year's GBL all-star and 2009 Baseball America Top Prospect Isaac Hess has rejoined the team, fresh from his work in the AAA Mexican League.
Isaac is here in town, and is likely to pitch in the Tijuana series which starts tomorrow.
This is fantastic news for Seals fans, who grew to love Isaac's dedication and tenacity on the mound during the 2009 season. In 16 games for the Seals, Hess was 9-2 with an ERA of 3.89. He has recently struggled in Mexico, sporting a 3-3 record and 5.59 ERA with minimal playing time, but look for all that to change when he hits the friendly confines of Royal Athletic.
With the first half of the season almost in the bag, the Seals seem to be turning things around offensively. With the addition of an All-Star pitcher with solid GBL experience joining the staff, optimism for the second half of the season is sky high.
Welcome back to Victoria, Isaac!
Hess will get the prestigious Canada Day start! Get your tickets ASAP or you might be sitting out in the football stands. Last year, Austin Bibens-Dirkx got the Canada Day start and it turned out to be his last game for the Seals after being signed by the Chicago Cubs.
