LETHBRIDGE, AB - The Lethbridge Bulls announced Tuesday, the signing of University of Fraser Valley slugger, OF Riley Jepson.
Jepson, a product of Kamloops, British Columbia, currently plays in the Canadian Colleges Baseball Conference with the Fraser Valley Cascades. A season ago, the lefty provided his club with a league leading batting average of .489, while hitting 3 home runs and driving in 25.
No stranger to the WCBL, Jepson spent time last season with the Yorkton Cardinals where he appeared in 35 games, leading the team in OPS and SLG, finishing the season with a slash line of .279/.369/.475, while hitting 11 doubles and 3 home runs.
The lefty swinging outfielder joins a Bulls roster full of amazing talent and is poised to be in the starting lineup come May 25th, when the Bulls hit the field for the first time this season against the Edmonton Prospects, before making their way home for the VisitLethbridge.com Home Opener May 30th when they take on the Fort McMurray Giants.
You can see the Bulls in action for the first time this season when they host the TCMM Memorial Game, which takes place May 29th against the Vauxhall Academy.
