CYPRESS, CA – The Cypress College baseball program is continuing the tradition of sending players on to the next level. As of today (6/28/17), 12-of-16 sophomores on last season's roster have signed national letters of intent to play at 4-year schools next season. First year Head Coach Anthony Hutting expects to have 15 sophomores playing at the next level in 2018, as 4 of his sophomores continue to weigh their options over the coming weeks.
