Bison Sign HS Rookie, Adam Luoto
The Columbia Bison have just signed Adam Luoto to the team. He is a high school junior at Castle Rock and will bat for the team as well as be a backup pitcher behind Erik Titus.
Luoto is a rookie, but he has actually been under contract with a JAL team before. In the JAL 14 offseason he was signed by the Northwest Mafia, but was eventually released just a few weeks later before that season began.
Instrumental in this signing was the Bison's star player, Erik Titus. According to the team's co-owner James French, Luoto was brought to his attention by Titus, and after taking a closer look at him, French decided to make an offer.
"He's a good team player and will do whatever it takes to help us win," said Titus on why he urged French to pursue Luoto.
As of right now all 3 players on the Bison are HS players, meaning the team's cap space is completely empty with 2 spots still open to potentially fill if they choose to.
