Hot Corners

La Mirada, CA – The So Cal Catch are excited to announce the signing of four new players for this upcoming Catch season. Infielders Jordan Hand, Omar Ortiz, Mitchell Bumann, and Steve Garrett all look to come in and man the corners of this Catch defense.

Jordan Hand is an intimidating presence on the baseball field and his resume speaks for itself.  Hand, the 6’2”, 225-pound first baseman from Las Vegas, NV is currently playing at Dallas Baptist University.Jordan has been selected in the MLB draft twice, once out of high school (34th round) and again out of Junior College (39th round).The first baseman was an all-conference performer at College of Southern Nevada and has always carried a powerful bat to go along with his strong competitive nature.

Omar Ortiz, from Las Vegas, NV, is a freshman third-baseman at University of the Pacific. Omar, standing at 6’0”, 190-pounds, has the ability and size to play at a prominent level all over the diamond.  While he will be asked to primarily hold down the hot-corner for the Catch, Ortiz has also seen action at first base and designated hitter for the Tigers.  Omar has yet to see consistent playing time at the collegiate level,but he has had considerable success in his past, garnering all-region and all-state honors while in high school.

Mitchell Bumann, the 6’0”,180-pound infielder is a junior at Hawaii Pacific University. Bumann is from Corona, CA and primarily plays on the left side of the infield, splitting time at third base and short stop.Mitchell has been a staple in the Sharks lineup while hitting a respectable .277 and adding 4 Home runs in 30 games.  The Catch hope to see Mitchell do more of the same this summer with a consistent bat and solid defense.Steve Garrett is a red-shirt junior at Azusa Pacific University from Murrieta, CA.

Garrett, the slugging first baseman, stands at 6’3”240-pounds.  Steve has the potential to add much needed power to the Catch lineup as his career has shown; as the Cougars primary designated hitter in 2016 he hit .280 with 3 home runs.

Fans can watch some of the best collegiate baseball talent in the country this summer when the Catch begin their 2017 season. Ticket packages and more information can be found at
