Two Sign in Pecos League

Two Sign in Pecos League

ROSWELL, N.M. - The Shenandoah University baseball program has two additional players playing professionally as Michael Scimanico '16 and Darrell Thompson '16 have been signed by the Roswell Invaders of the Pecos League.

The Invaders are the defending champions of the 10-team loop, which includes teams from Arizona, Colorado, Kansas, New Mexico, and Texas.

Roswell is in the five-team Southern Division along with White Sands, Alpine, Tucson and Santa Fe. The Invaders are 1.5 games behind Tucson following last night's 8-4 home win over the Saguaros.

The Fourth of July contest set a league record with 8720 fans at Kino Veterans Stadium.

Thompson and Scimanico, who combined for 14 wins this past season for the Hornets, will join Roswell's rotation.

"We were all hoping that Mike and Darrell would get drafted," SU skipper Kevin Anderson said. "When that didn't happen, both of them set out on a mission to get the opportunity to play professional baseball with an independent league team in the hope that they each would earn contracts with Major League Baseball organizations.

"That first goal has now been met and it speaks volumes about the character and competitiveness that both of them possess."

The 2016 Shenandoah Hornets now have three alumni playing professional baseball. Phil Morse '16, a relief pitcher, had his first professional save in Monday's 4-2 victory for Auburn (N.Y.) over Lowell (Mass.) in Class A NY-Penn League action.
