Eckleman joins the Falmouth Commodores from Saint Louis University where he has just completed his sophomore season with the Billikens. Matt has more than earned his way onto this year’s Commodores roster after posing a 7-2 record with a 1.63 era and 9 saves this spring. As a freshman, Eckleman set a freshman school record with 27 appearances and four saves while also tallying 6 wins which was good enough for third most by a freshman in Saint Louis University history. Matt is sure to have a positive impact on the Commodores this summer.
Prior to having a nice spring with Oregon State, Eden pitched in 13 games last summer with the Marysville Gold Sox; working 33 2/3 innings, he struck out 36 batters with opponents batting only .211 against him and went 2-0 with a 1.87 ERA. This lead to Chandler being named the top prospect of the Horizon Air Summer Series. In high school, Eden was named Conference pitcher of the year in his senior season and was rated the No. 98 high school player in North America by Baseball America. Chandler will take his talents to the Cape this summer to be a part of the Falmouth Commodores.
Another Commodore veteran, Hale returns for his second summer in Falmouth. Conner is a Junior College transfer to LSU from State College of Florida, a school where he excelled in baseball. In 2013, his sophomore year, Hale batted .366 which earned him Suncoast Conference Player of the Year, 1st team all conference, and 1st team all state. This past season with LSU, Conner started 55 games and hit .306. Not just a star on the diamond, Hale was also a four year honor roll student in high school.
McCanna returns for his second season with the Commodores in 2014. His 2013 campaign for the Rice Owls saw him pitch in 16 games, making five starts as a true freshman. During the summer of 2013 in Falmouth, Kevin posted a 2-2 record over 8 appearances while matching his collegiate numbers in starts. The Woodlands High School (TX) graduate was selected as a first team All-State pitcher by the Texas High School Baseball Coaches Association and helped lead his high school team to the district championship. We are looking forward to Kevin assisting Falmouth in trying to make it back to the CCBL Championship round.
Joining his OSU teammate, Chandler Eden, Morrison looks to be an asset to the Commodores this summer. A left-handed hitter, Trever gets on base and shows some power. That surely helped him get selected by the Boston Red Sox in the 36th round of the 2013 draft. Morrison passed, however, and chose to attend Oregon State where he is majoring in pre-business. Trever finished with a good season for the Oregon State Beavers and looks to build on that with a strong summer with the Commodores.
