Kawaguchi to Pitch for LumberKings

Bakersfield Ca:

The California LumberKings announced today that they have signed pitcher Jeff Kawaguchi for the upcoming season. Looking to replace injured pitcher Darren Strang, the LumberKings signed Kawaguchi who is from Vancouver, B.C.

Along with assuming the pitching duties vacated by Strang, Kawagucci will add a strong bat to an already deep lineup. In addition to pitching, he can also play in the field at 1st base and the outfield adding even more versatility to the Kings roster.

Jeff has been one of the top pitchers and hitters in the Premier league of Vancouver and is a former member of the Vancouver Grey Sox. With the addition of Kawagucci and the merge with Taylor Farms, the LumberKings are very optimistic about the upcoming season and are very excited to hit the field. They will open the season in early April in Taft, Ca. and continue their goal of improving on their second place finish at the 2007 ToC.
