As the Texas Collegiate League’s 2011 season approaches, the East Texas Pump Jacks’ roster gets three new names.
The Pump Jacks have gone back to their roots to add three new players to the roster, signing Angelina College ace Chase Greening, a Lufkin native, as well as University of Missouri teammates C.J. Jarvis and James Hudelson.
Jarvis and Hudelson extend a relationship between Mizzou and the Jacks that has seen five players with Missouri ties suit up in East Texas. Former all-TCL catcher Brett Nicholas left the Pump Jacks for Missouri before he was drafted by the Texas Rangers. Dusty Ross, who last summer set the TCL record for saves in a season while pitching for the Pump Jacks, came out of the bullpen for the Tigers this spring as well.
