IRVING, Texas – Summer ball is wrapping up for several members of the University of Dallas baseball team, who had 14 players involved with a summer team. While some players are finished with their seasons, others are continuing or joining another team to continue play the remaining weeks before the new 2019-20 academic year begins in about a month.
Jamie Wallace (Crockett, Texas) headlines the latter group as he was picked up by the Texas Express in the 2019 National Baseball Congress (NBC) World Series. Because the Express won their championship bid, they will skip the Pool Play this week and start on August 1-10. Click here for more about the 85th NBC World Series. Wallace had spent time previously this summer with the Westchase Express out of the Houston Collegiate Summer League (HCSL).
Conrad Voss (Corona, Calif.) is another strong left-handed pitcher that has performed well this summer with the Traverse City Pit Spitters in the Northwoods League. Voss is 2-2 with a 3.71 ERA in 12 games (3 starts). He has logged 26.2 innings, struck out 14, and walked eight. (Player Profile).

He has contributed to the team's 40-16 overall record that includes a 17-3 mark in the second half in the Great Lakes East. The Pit Spitters have won their last seven.
Zachary Taylor (Humble, Texas), Andrew Magness (San Antonio, Texas), Derek Trevino (Orange Grove, Texas), and Cade Corbett (Corona, Calif.) continue play with the Yorkton Cardinals in the Western Canadian Baseball League.
