Derik Bontempo: NAIA All-American OF who hit 40 home runs in past two seasons (SIGNED FOR THE 2018 SUMMER)

SIGNED TO PLAY IN FRANCE

Derik Bontempo is a power hitting utility player out of Renton, Washington. He recently graduated from Bellevue University where he established himself as one of the top prospects in the nation. He lead his league in nearly every offensive category; batting average (.436), hits (95), homeruns (19), runs scored (69), doubles (21), total bases (179), and slugging percentage(.821). For his great season, he was honored with 1st-Team All-American and NSAA Player of the Year awards. Somehow, Derik was overlooked in the 2017 MLB Draft. Now he is looking to continue his baseball career internationally and see this chance as an opportunity to see the world.

Derik has the ability to hit for both power and average. He is perfect for the 3-hole because he can get on base and drive guys in. He has power to all fields and would be a great addition to any lineup. He will become available around March 2018 and is looking for an opportunity in Canada, Europe, or Japan. He would like the team to cover flights, accommodations, and a monthly salary.
