The Bells are excited to announce a new partnership with the University of Texas and the addition of two left-handers to the pitching staff this summer.
“It’s very exciting to be starting a new partnership with Texas baseball,” Bells general manager Stephanie Morrell said. “The Longhorns have a strong and storied program. We’re thrilled to be working with them, and hope this will be the beginning of a long relationship.”
LHP Chase Lummus graduated from Godley High School in Godley, Texas in 2019 and is slated to make his debut with the Longhorns this spring.
“Chase has long been known for having a special arm,” Morrell said. “And really being tough on hitters. He will add some nice depth to our pitching staff this summer, we expect that he will be a player who fans will love to watch!”
Lummus, 6-foot-1, 190-pounds, was a freshman for the 2020 season and did not see playing time in a shortened season. In 2021, he redshirted and underwent surgery which barred him from action.
LHP Cameron Dayton will also make his Longhorn debut this spring. He graduated in 2019 from Round Rock High School in Round Rock, Texas and spent his first two collegiate seasons at Midland College where he was a dual threat.
“Cameron is a talented individual known for his ability to contribute both at the plate and on the mound,” Morrell said. “We expect him to be a great addition to the pitching staff this summer and are looking forward to watching him compete for the Bells!”
Dayton played 57 games at Midland College and batted .370 and pitched 23 innings with 24 strikeouts.
The Bells home opener is May 31 against the Springfield Drifters at Joe Martin Field.
