The Wasco Reserves baseball team is adding additional players to its roster, and according to Manager Bill Moore, there will be about 25 players ready to begin practicing in May.

The most recent signing is 24-year-old Alex Clayton from Johnstown, Colo. Clayton's career highlight was hitting a 3-run home run 460 feet on Senior Day.

Clayton is a utility player, playing second base, third base and shortstop.

"I loved being a utility player. I'd play three or four positions in one game," he said. "Playing all over the field is fun and challenging." He said if he had to pick his favorite position, it would be shortstop. "There is so much action, and I can talk to everyone."

Clayton has tried to break into the majors and has looked at many leagues and cities. "The Pecos League is in a great part of the country," Clayton said. "They have provided me with an opportunity to play. I am humbled and thankful for Coach Bill, the Wasco Reserves and the Pecos League for this great opportunity of playing the wonderful game of baseball again."

The Reserves start practices Monday, May 15, with opening night at Wasco Park on Sunday, May 26.

The Reserves still are looking for host families to house players this summer. For information, contact Moore at 602-980-2372 or [email protected]
