The Catfish Welcome Dante Zamudio back to the Pond!
Dante Zamudio should be a familiar name for Catfish fans. This young man was having a nice season as a two-way player for the Fish last year when his season ended abruptly with an elbow injury. GM Mark Hogan believes the team would have made the playoffs if that wouldn’t have happened. Zamudio from Sylmar, CA is coming back to Cape for another summer. He’s a two player like a handful of other Catfish guys. He’s a right handed pitcher who can play infield and outfield and can swing the bat.
2022- Dante played his freshman season for West Virginia State. He saw action in 38 games, starting 27 of those. He collected 26 hits, scoring 13 runs and ended the season batting .271. He had 8 doubles and 2 home runs while driving in 15. On the mound he appeared in 7 games and was 1-0 with 2 saves. Had 10 innings pitched and an ERA of 5.59.
2023 – Zamudio transfered to Los Angeles Pierce College where he continued as a two way guy. He recovered from the injury he suffered with the Catfish and had a strong year. In 34 games he had 29 hits, scored 21 runs and batted .269. Dante stroked six doubles, two triples and a home run while driving in 17. On the bump he had 12 appearances, 5 of them were starts. He compiled a 4-2 record in 35.1 innings pitched. He had an ERA of 6.37 and K-per nine of 11.
He will be one of the arms the Catfish rely on this summer but don’t count him out playing in the field. He is one of a handful of very talented two-way players the Catfish will have at their disposal this season. Welcome back Dante!
