Danny Perez Signs With Lake Erie Crushers

We are thrilled to announce that one of our cornerstone “pandas,” Danny Perez has signed a professional baseball contract with the Lake Erie Crushers of the Independent Frontier League under manager Cam Roth.

The former 3 year New York Nine Scout team player had a monster season in 2021 at Oklahoma Wesleyan University in Oklahoma, leading the school to the NAIA World Series.

In the regular season, Perez was among the nation’s leaders with a .383 batting average, 18 home runs, 68 RBI and 72 hits. At the World Series he homered and added an additional 4 hits and 5 RBI.

We wish Danny the best as he prepares for his professional debut in 2022.

Four New York Nine Alumni Drafted

Posted on by

The 2014 First-Year Player Draft saw three former New York Nine pitchers selected. RHP Giovanni Abreu was taken in the 14th round by the Texas Rangers. Abreu features a fastball up to 94 MPH and a projectable frame. RHP Quinn Carpenter went in the 17th Round to the Toronto Blue Jays. Carpenter enjoyed a stellar season at Iowa Western Community College and will play baseball at Texas Tech should he not ink a deal. Lastly, LHP Nestor Bautista was selected in the 32nd Round by the Miami Marlins. Bautista, after tearing his labrum last year, had a 3.55 ERA this year at Ball State University in Indiana. Finally, SS Ethan Gross was drafted in the 26th round by the Chicago White Sox out of Memphis. We wish these four fine young men health and success as they begin their professional baseball careers.
