Wes Roemer and Brett Pill, two of the area top baseball stars within the past decade, are off to solid starts in their Cal League debuts.
Roemer, who made some appearances against Major Leaguers in spring training, has been solid in his first two starts of the season for the Visalia Oaks.
The former Glendora star, who later became a two-time All-American and Collegiate Baseball Player of the Year while at Cal State Fullerton, is 1-0 with a 2.45 ERA and 10 strikeouts in 11 innings. He will get to add to those numbers tonight when starts against the Inland Empire 66ers at Arrowhead Credit Union Park in San Bernardino . Game time is scheduled for 7:05. Roemer may also get to pitch to former Northview star Jaime Pedroza, who is hitting just .166 with five RBIs in nine games for the 66ers.
Pill is hitting .289 with a home run and seven RBIs in 10 games for the San Jose Giants.
The former Covina star, who also played at Cal State Fullerton, also has a slugging percentage of .400. He is platooning at first base. He went 1 for 4 on Sunday as the Giants beat the Bakersfield Blaze, 11-1, to win three of four games over the weekend.
San Jose travels to Stockton today to begin a three-game series against the Ports. The Giants, and Pill, will be in San Bernardino to face the 66ers in a four-game series beginning April 25.
