SEATTLE – (July 20) Seattle University baseball head coach Donny Harrel announced the addition of Dawson Day and Wyatt Boone to the program's 2017 signees, bringing the incoming class to 10 players.
Day is a 6-foot, 180-pound lefty out of Centennial High School in Gresham, Ore. A two-way player, he was named the Oregon 6A State Player of the Year.
"Dawson is a tremendous late signee for us," said Harrel. "He had a couple of bigger schools try and sign him and we are fortunate to be the perfect fit. He will compete for an outfield spot and his tremendous feel on the mound excites us so we can strengthen our bullpen."
Boone hails from J Serra Catholic High School in San Juan Capistrano, Calif. From Dana Point, CA. The 5-11, 190-pound right-handed pitcher is currently pitching with the Victoria Harbourcats in the West Coast League where he is sporting a 0.00 ERA and will make his first start this Friday night.
"Wyatt is a great fit after we lost Janson Junk to the Yankees," Harrel said. "Coach Cribby built a great relationship with him and he was familiar with our school and park after visiting last summer. He gives us a guy who can spin a breaking ball and keep hitters off balance, which was an area we lacked out of the bullpen last season. He should help us right away."
Day and Boone join eight previous signees to the program for the 2018 season. To read more about the rest of the class, click here.
