While we wait for some of the other teams to announce their rosters for the Texas Collegiate League, the Round Rock Hairy Men has released their roster. Also, the Flying Chanclas roster is starting to form so we will take a closer look at the Chanclas roster.

Round Rock Hairy Men Roster

The Round Rock Hairy Men has their preliminary roster available. Most of the players are from the Lone Star State. I’m not sure if I like the name but I did laugh when I first saw it.

Flying Chanclas roster

By my count, the Flying Chanclas have signed eight players so far. Four player were signed yesterday that play for the University of Texas in San Antonio. Just announced today was the signing of four additional players from TCU. Here is a quick look at the roster so far.

Shepherd slashed a line of .268/.344/.554 in 15 games played this year. He hit 4 home runs and had 14 RBI. Shepherd worked 6 walks and struck out 16 times. According to what I have sen, Shepherd looks like a fun player to watch and he’s got some spunk and a little speed with 2 stolen bases.
