The Corvallis Knights have signed Cal State-Fullerton sophomore third baseman Zach Weller for the 2018 season, coach Brooke Knight announced Wednesday.
Weller is a 6-foot-2, 205-pounder from Coronado High School in Coronado, California. He hit .225 (9-40) in 20 games as a freshman in 2017, with two homers, 11 RBIs and 11 runs scored. He had three multi-hit games, and three multi-RBI games.
Weller played shortstop at Coronado, where he was a 2016 teammate of incoming Knights catcher Briley Knight. He was named Coronado’s Top Athlete, and was a first-team CIF-San Diego section and a first-team all-state selection as a senior.
Corvallis is the two-time defending WCL champion. The 2018 schedule will be announced later this fall.
