“We are excited to add this class of high-level players to Arizona Baseball,” Johnson said. “It is a class that will really compliment the players we will have returning to give us a good foundation for the 2022 season and beyond. We are always looking for high-level players that are also high-level people, and I think that we accomplished that with this group. If these players continue the development track they are on, many of them will have the chance to make positive contributions to Arizona Baseball in the coming years. This is another really good day for our program.”
