Starter Ryan Gaines (Birmingham Southern College) -- recently named the Southern Athletic Association Pitcher of the Year, returns this year, along with fellow BSC pitcher Stephen Himic. Teammates Joey Fiske and Logan Steinberg, from St. Mary’s College, will be back in Danville this summer, along with teammate Brett Rasso. Grant Mayeaux (Cypress College) and Brian Allec (Texas A&M Corpus Christ) will also return for 2016.
New players are coming from familiar colleges like North Florida and San Diego. They are also coming from Baylor, Kansas, Arizona, Louisiana Tech, and Seton Hall, to name a few.
With the Prospect League season starting on May 26 (the Dans will be on the road until May 31), there will be a number of temporary players on the Dans roster until players get done with their conference and post-season appearances.
Once in Danville, the players will be led by Eric Coleman, who will be in his third year as manager of the Danville Dans. He’s guided the Dans to the Prospect League playoffs his first two seasons.
