TRAVERSE CITY, MI - The Traverse City Beach Bums are excited to announce the addition of infielder, Ryan Brockett.  

"Brockett is a veteran infielder that brings a lot of experience to the middle of the diamond," said Jason Wuerfel, Beach Bums Director of Baseball Operations. "He is also a scrappy hitter and will be a nice compliment to our power guys." 

Prior to joining the Beach Bums, Brockett spent his 2015 season playing for the Gary Southshore Railcats before being traded to the Frontier League's  Schaumburg Boomers. While with the Railcats, Brockett suffered from an injury plagued 2014 season, but still managed to appear in 118 games during his two tours with the team. He had previously played for the Boomers during the team’s 2013 Frontier League Championship season. During his time with the Boomers in 2013, the 5’9’’ 170 pound utility player appeared in five games, registering a .333 batting average.  In 2012, he played in the Canadian-American League for the Worcester Tornadoes as both an infielder and outfielder during his 66 games with the team. 

During his college years, Brockett played for the University of New Haven where he stole 67 bases over his successful, four-year career. As a senior in college he led the team with a .344 batting average and a .446 on-base percentage.
