UNLV Godman Signs with Gold Sox

MARYSVILLE, CALIFORNIA: The Yuba Sutter Gold Sox are proud to announce that Jacob Godman will be joining the team for the 2018 season.

“Our roster is continuing to grow with strong and exceptional players. We’re excited to see the talent that Jacob has  and to see how our team turns out,” said VP/GM Michael Mink.

Jacob comes to the team as both a right-handed pitcher and catcher.  He has signed a National Letter Of Intent to play at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas beginning in the fall of 2018. During his high school season, Godman hit .420 with a 1.02 ERA in 14 innings pitched and 13 strikeouts.   He helped Palo Verde High School to a division championship and an eighth-place finish at the state tournament in 2017 behind a 22-win season. This year, he has earned all-tournament team honors at Perfect Game's West MLK Championship and the 17U Perfect Game World Series. Most recently, he played club baseball for the Ohio Warhawks, which finished third at the Perfect Game World Series, and for the Las Vegas Raiders.

Jacob wants all the Gold Sox fans to know that they should “be ready for a great season and get ready for some great Gold Sox baseball!”
