WALLA WALLA - Brett Watson, a left-handed pitcher from WWCC, and Dan Sorine, a left-handed pitcher from Fordham University, have signed contracts with the Sweets to play West Coast League baseball this summer.
The pair joins an already strong Sweets' pitching staff that includes 13 right-handed pitchers and six southpaws.
Watson was slated to join the Sweets for their inaugural season in 2010 before he was sidelined for the summer with an elbow injury.
"Brett's a talented pitcher coming back from an injury that sidelined him last year," said Sweets manager and WWCC assistant coach, J.C. Biagi. "He's worked hard in the off-season and we look for him to be an integral part of our staff this summer."
Sorine, a 6-foot 2-inch, 215-pound sophomore from Eastchester, N.Y., made 18 appearances in 2010 as a freshman for the Fordham Rams. He pitched nine innings and had six strikeouts, including a two-inning, four-strikeout performance while registering his first collegiate save against Fairfield. After losing its opening game to Virginia Commonwealth to start the 2011 season, Fordham has reeled off six straight wins over VCU, Iona and Manhattan.
