Following another invitation to the Los Angeles Dodgers Spring Training, California Warriors alum O’Koyea Dickson has absolutely shot out of the gates during his first week back with the AAA-affiliate Oklahoma City Dodgers. O’Koyea has collected 10 Hits over his first 14 AB’s (good for a .714 AVG), has scored 6 Runs, driven in 5 RBI, and blasted 3 HR (including a multi-HR game) as he continues making his case to earn the final promotion up to the big leagues. In 2016, Dickson had a breakout season for the Oklahoma City Dodgers, hitting for a .328 AVG and .994 OPS over 329 AB and collecting 63 Runs, 64 RBI, and and 18 HR. A standout player in a crowded Dodgers minor league system, Dickson has proven the value of tenacity and hard work, qualities that made him stand out as well during his time as a California Warriors player and coach.
California Warriors alum and current UC Berkeley junior, Matt Ladrech, built on his strong season with a dominant outing against Arizona State this week. Ladrech earned the Win for the Golden Bears in a 10-2 victory by tossing 6.2 Innings of 1-Run ball while striking out 4 and walking none. Over 20 IP this season, Matt has a 2-0 record with 11K’s, 2 BB’s, and an immaculate 0.90 ERA. We look forward to watching the rest of Matt’s junior year at CAL unfold!
