Robinson Invited to Play in the Cape Cod League
Thursday, April 3, 2008

SHREVEPORT – Centenary sophomore pitcher Dakota Robinson has been invited to play in one of the most prestigious summer collegiate baseball leagues in the country. The Bossier City, La., native was originally signed for just a two week try out in the Cape Cod League, but was asked recently to play the full summer because of an injury.

 

Robinson will play for the Harwich Mariners, who finished the 2007 summer with a 14-28-2 record. This seasons Cape Cod schedule will begin on June 14 and conclude on August 14 with a league championship game.

 

The Mariners have had several future major leaguers play for them in the past. Jason Bartlett (Tampa Bay), Tim Lincecum (San Francisco), Kevin Milar (Baltimore) and Carlos Pena (Tampa Bay) are just four of the 16 that have had Major League Baseball service.

 

In just a season and a half, Robinson has seen action in 37 games, with 89 innings of work, along with giving up just 41 runs and he also has a solid 2.93 ERA. Robinson has shown great control early through his collegiate career, striking out 61 and allowing 16 walks.

 

“This is a huge honor for Dakota and its great recognition for the program,” said head coach Ed McCann. “I know he’ll do well in the Cape, because he has such a great head on his shoulders.”
