The 2018 Charlottesville Tom Sox are pleased to welcome Zach Gakeler, junior LHP, Rider University.  The 6’4; 215 pounder from Jobstown, NJ attended North Burlington HS.

In 2016 & 2017, Gakeler, played at highly regarded Mercer County C.C. He pitched to a 14-3 record (74 strikeouts; 17 walks) and was named to the NJCAA 2016 Division II All Region XIX First Team and 2016 Division II All-GSAC First Team.

From Tom Sox GM Jeff Burton “Zach was on our radar last Spring when we knew he was headed to Barry Davis’ Rider program.  We have tremendous faith in Coach Davis, a native of Albemarle County.  He feels confident Zach is going to be a big contributor to the Rider staff, and we think he adds another high impact LHP to our Tom Sox rotation.”

Welcome aboard, Zach.
