FRC baseball players sign early
The Feather River College Golden Eagles baseball program has produced more than 20 NCAA Division I baseball players in Head Coach Terry Baumgartner’s six seasons and this year’s team produced two more during the fall early signing period that ended Nov. 20.
FRC is coming off another outstanding season in 2013, which saw the Golden Eagles win their seventh consecutive Golden Valley Conference championship, produce five NCAA Division I players and finish the season at the Final Four in Fresno.
Even though the 2014 season is still a couple months away, the Golden Eagles have already produced two players who will spend the 2015 season at the NCAA Division I level.
Sophomores Eli Davidann and Jordan Desguin are both right-handed pitchers and are both newcomers to the Golden Eagle program. Davidann signed with the University of Hawaii and Desguin signed with Florida Gulf Coast University during the fall early-signing period.
Davidann is from Kailua, Hawaii, and he transferred to the Golden Eagles from College of Southern Idaho where he was a reliever last season. The 6-foot-4-inch righty hopes to help fill one of the holes for FRC this season, as the Golden Eagles have to replace all three starters from last season’s state-leading pitching staff.
Desguin is originally from Newport Beach and he transferred to the Golden Eagles from Florida State University and Northwest Florida Junior College, where he played infield. The 6-foot righty is very athletic and just started pitching this summer, developing himself into a potential pro prospect for this fall.
The Golden Eagles will open the 2014 season Friday, Jan. 31, 2014, with a doubleheader at Taft College, followed by a single game Saturday, Feb. 1, against Imperial Valley College. Both days of games can be heard live on the radio and the Web. Go to athletics.frc.edu and click on the baseball page. Click on schedule, then choose the game.
