The Bellingham Bells are excited to announce the addition of right-handed pitcher Nick Hull to the 2018 roster.
Hull is currently a freshman at Grand Canyon University but is originally from Bothell, Wash.
“We are thrilled to be adding Nick to the 2018 roster,” Bells’ general manager Stephanie Morrell said. “Nick’s name seems to come up in the conversation whenever you are discussing strong local talent in Northwest Washington, and we were thrilled to have the opportunity to add him to the roster this summer.”
As a senior at Edmonds-Woodway High School in 2017, the righty went 6-1 with an ERA of 2.02 across 66 innings. He mowed batters down, striking out 101 hitters which was the top mark in the state of Washington.
This helped Hull to be named to the WIAA All-State first team in 2017.
His success did not just start his senior year, as he was terrific as a junior as well, throwing seven complete games and finishing with a 1.13 ERA.
This dominance included a no-hitter against Shorecrest High School in which he struck out 15 batters.
Hull has been heavily relied upon during his freshman year at Grand Canyon. He leads all GCU freshman with 26.2 innings pitched. He is 0-1 with a 9.11 ERA through nine appearances and six starts. He has struck out 22 while walking just 12.
Hull’s best performance of the season game in his first collegiate start. He threw five innings against No. 7 TCU allowing just one run on four hits while striking out four.
“Nick is a tremendous young talent who is fortunate enough to be gaining valuable experience right away in his freshman year,” Morrell said. “We are confident that with a season under his belt, he will be ready to help the Bells this summer.”
The right-hander will join a loaded Bells’ pitching staff when they take the field for the first time in 2018 at Kelowna on June 1.
