COMMERCE, CA – Outfielder Zachary Ashford has been signed to the 2018 EPBL season at the conclusion of todays Empire League Tryout Camp in California and has been assigned to the Bucks.

Ashford, a big tall 6 foot 4 inches, 210 pound right handed batter, had a good showing at the tryout where he showed a very strong arm from right field as well as some hitting power to both sides of the field.

“Zach is going to get his opportunity to show what he’s got this season with the Bucks. Big Tall strong arm in right field will be fun to watch. I’m excited to see what he’s capable of doing” – Vp of Baseball Jerry Gonzalez

The tall Ashford out of California will be the first to sign for the Bucks this season.

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.
