With the last of our summer 2018 upper-class summer roster announcements, the Charlottesville Tom Sox want to welcome back two familiar faces: Junior RHP Nick Roth from Randolph Macon and Sophomore RHP Jeb Bemiss from Cornell.
Roth spent a redshirt year at St. Joseph’s before transferring to RMC in Ashland, VA. He played his prep baseball at Benedictine in Richmond. He had a tremendous season for the Yellow Jackets in 2017 as he threw 57.2 innings; went 5-1 with a 3.28 ERA; had 45 strikeouts and only walked 8.
He was on the 2017 Tom Sox at the beginning of the summer before he headed home to rest. In his short time with us, though, he went 2-1; with a 4.26 ERA; throwing 12.2 innings; striking out 6 and walking only 2.
Bemiss is also from Richmond, graduating from Saint Christopher’s before heading north to the Ivy League school in upstate NY. In his freshman campaign, he made 13 appearances; had a 4.76 ERA; struck out 12 and walked 12 over 22.2 innings.
The 6’0; 205 pounder joined the Tom Sox at midsummer and threw 17 innings while maintaining an ERA of 5.82. He struck out 13 and walked only 3.
From Tom Sox GM Jeff Burton “we are so excited to have both Nick Roth and Jeb Bemiss back in 2018. Both will be anchors in their respective college pitching staffs. Both are really quality individuals who add to the culture of our team and our community. They are extremely competitive and should give us that experience edge we look for throughout our staff. We also love getting those guys from Virginia whose families can participate in the summer alongside our local fans.”
Both Jeb and Nick will do internships while in Charlottesville. Bemiss has already committed to go back to Locus Health where he also interned in 2017.
Welcome back Nick and Jeb.
