    Pirates Host Press Conference

    The Toppers Pizza Pirates held a press conference early Saturday morning to officially announce their signings of C Jay Bryant and 2B Oliver Argueta to the team.

    "Jay Bryant will give us a reliable, young Catcher that has the ability to hit for a high average near the top of our lineup. Bryant is the type of hitter we've been missing so far in our young history. Oliver is a guy who will battle at the plate, basically think of Oliver as a "Munenori Kawasaki" type player. He's not going to wow you with his defense, power or speed, but you know Oliver is going to battle every single pitch of every single game and that type of player can be invaluable to a team"

    The Pirates also used the opportunity to announce, in conjunction with League Officials, that they had won the Draft Lottery and will select 1st overall in this July's Amateur Draft.

    "We are very fortunate to be selecting 1st overall this season. We're going to have to be sure that we choose the right player for the needs of the franchise. Our minor league system is currently a bit bare with only a few prospects we feel can contribute soon for the club and that has to change, having the 1st overall pick can definitely help with that issue"
