Lake Stevens’ Kelliher added to Bells’ roster

Lake Stevens senior right-hander Branden Kelliher has been added to the Bellingham Bells’ 2014 roster and will play on the summer collegiate baseball team after the high school season ends. The team announced the move in a press release on Monday.

Kelliher is the No. 1-ranked high school prospect in Washington according to the Perfect Game and is the 39th-ranked right-handed pitcher in the nation. Kelliher has signed a letter of intent to play baseball for the University of Oregon and will enroll at Oregon in fall 2014.

“Branden is a very decorated high school pitcher,” Bells pitching coach Jim Clem said in a press release. “He has pitched on some of the country’s biggest stages for high school players and has excelled. We are looking forward to Branden wearing a Bells uniform this summer and making the jump from high school baseball to the college ranks. He should be an exciting player to watch!”

The Bellingham Bells season begins on June 6 and all home games are played at Joe Martin Field. For more information, visit the West Coast League website at www.wccbl.com.
