SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The USD baseball team has concluded the 2017 season, and the end of the school season means the beginning of summer league. There are a great deal of Toreros playing summer ball all across the country.

Five Toreros will be playing in the Cape Cod League, regarded as one of the best summer ball programs. A trio of left handed pitchers will represent the Toreros in Cape Cod: USA Collegiate National Team standout Nick Sprengel, Miles Sandum, and Chris Murphy. Jeff Houghtby, the shortstop of the team, and Daniel Gardner, an outfielder, are also playing in the Cape Cod League. All five Toreros in the Cape Cod League will compete against one another: Sprengel (Wareham), Sandum (Y-D Red Sox), Houghtby (Orleans), Murphy (Brewster), Gardner (Cotuit).

Four current Toreros head to the Northwoods League, highlighted by Jay Schuyler, who hit a team-high .352 in 2017. Third baseman Brhet Bewley and right hander Paul Richan will both play for the Lacrosse Loggers while Schuyler and right handed pitcher Nathan Walker will both play for the Waterloo Bucs.  

Five Toreros will travel up north to play in the West Coast League. Three out of five will play for the Victoria Harbourcats: outfielder Kevin Collard, infielder Noah Prewett, and right handed pitcher Travis Kuhn. Outfielder Aaron Simpson will play for the Gresham Grey Wolves while rightie Louis Crow will compete for the Corvallis Knights.

Other Toreros playing summer ball across the nation include: Chris Colarossi (Danville Dans, GBL), Cole Cardey (Danville Dans, GBL), Chris McCready (Anchorage Pilots, ABL), Geoff McCalley (Anchorage Pilots, ABL), Paul Kunst (Alaska Goldpanners, ABL), Doug Nimura (Marysville Gold Sox, GWL), Jordan Abushahla (Clarinda Iowa A's, Mink Baseball League), and Trevor Rosenberg (Front Royal, Valley Baseball League).
