COMMERCE, CA – The Empire League batting champ from 2017 has signed in the California Tryout Camp today and has been assigned to the Sullivan Explorers where he will look to repeat as batting champ in 2018.

Carter hit .354 batting average in 176 Plate Appearances last season with 2 Home Runs and 25 Runs Batted In. Carter transitioned from 3rd Base to Outfield and will look to become more valuable by adding first base to his defense.

“This guy crushes balls. In the 3 rounds he got today he must have hit 10 or 12 balls 375ft or longer. There was a reason he was the batting champ last year and I’m interested to see if he can repeat this year. Hopefully we can help him advance this time around.” Vp of Baseball Jerry Gonzalez

Carter will join the team where first year manager Joey Molina has been named the teams new coach.

The Empire League will have spring training in Delaware on June 4-8, 2018 to finalize the final 120 roster spots/contracts available. Like no other camp in the world, the EPBL is the only league that offers 120 or more contracts at their tryout camps. For those players interested in pursuing your dreams and would like a shot at professional baseball, remember, the EPBL only signs players that attend EPBL camps. This will be the last tryout camp in professional baseball this season. To be accepted, visit empireproleague.com, click the tryouts link and apply for acceptance to our spring Training Tryout camp before camp spots are filled. There are limited participants accepted into the EPBL ST Tryout camp. So players are recommended to not wait as once camp is filled, no one else will be allowed to tryout.
