So Cal Bombers sign Rodriguez & Lalonde
The So Cal Bombers are pleased to announce the signings of Landy
Rodriguez and Adam Lalonde for the 2007 season. Rodriguez is
a current, and Lalonde a former, member of the USA National team
and played last season with the NY Patsy club in the ISC World
At the recent Pan Am Qualifier event, Rodriguez hit .294 with
2 home runs and 5 RBI, while leading the USA team with a .725
slugging percentage. He also hit .500 in the WT with a homerun
and 2 RBI.
Lalonde is one of the games fastest players and has a combined
average of .282 over the past two WT with 5 HRs, and is widely
regarded as one of the best defensive CFs in softball. Adam
is very familiar with many of the Bombers players and management,
having helped them win a NAFA WT in 2004.
Head Coach Kelly McGiffin said hes excited about these two additions
and the Bombers roster as a whole.
Going into the off season, one of our main goals was to add
some hitters to the middle of our order and this really tops
off that accomplishment. Weve added key components like Potskin,
Santillano and Crawford; and these additions really solidify
our attack. Landy provides us another bat to complement the heart
of the order and makes for a strong and deep offensive lineup.
Adding Lalonde to the top of our order allows us to use Ghostkeepers
bat in other spots further solidifying the overall lineup. And
with Lalonde and Pinocchio, it gives us what may be the two fastest
men in softball.
Defensively we are very solid up the middle with deep catching
(Ghostkeeper, Box & Rodriguez); great speed and gloves at middle
infield (Butler and Pinocchio) and of course in CF (Lalonde).
And our corners in both the outfield and infield are solid with
any combination of Rodriguez, Mendibles, Devine, Porto, Santillano,
Crawford, Parra and Potskin.
These two players give us great experience at the highest level
and individuals that we think add value on and off the field.
So Cals ownership, staff and players welcome Landy and Adam
to the Bombers and look forward to a great 2007 season.
