From Ohio State’s Alex Morando, Assistant Director –
The (OSU) coaching staff wanted Seth to get more innings in and it wasn’t based on performance in the Cape. He will be playing for Champion City Kings in Springfield, Ohio.
Brewster had 16 pitchers (they still have 16 on their current roster) show up to start the season, as a result the pitchers were only getting in 3 to 4 innings every 7-9 days. The Champion City Kings is a member of the 10 team Prospects League. According to the Kings rosters they currently have 16 pitchers.
(6-25-18) Celina’s Seth Lonsway and his Cape Cod League team, the Brewster Whitecaps, had a slow start to the 2018 season. On June 20th after just two short relief appearances Lonsway was released by Brewster. The Whitecaps are currently 3-10-1 and are in last place in the East Division.
The last year has not been what Lonsway had hoped for in his baseball career. During last year’s draft after being a late-round choice by the Reds he decided to play at Ohio State in the fall. Lonsway was having a good pre-season with the Buckeyes, but before the start of the season he was found to be ineligible by the NCAA due to some issues with his high school transcript.
Lonsway, who finished an outstanding high school baseball, will now move forward and look ahead to the future.
