DCC Baseball Pitcher Signs LOI with Bluefield College


(February 1, 2018)  – Danville Community College (DCC) Knights sophomore pitcher Spencer Ambrose (#3) signed a letter of intent on Thursday, Feb. 1, to play for Bluefield College’s baseball team this fall.
Originally from Elizabeth City, N.C., Ambrose said that Bluefield was his first choice to transfer after he graduates from DCC’s business management program this spring.
Bluefield College Assistant Baseball Coach Thomas Huddleston represented Bluefield for the signing Thursday morning.
“As he enters his second season with the DCC Knights, he is going to be a major key in our success this spring,” said DCC Baseball Head Coach John Bailey. “I look for Spencer to implement the lessons he learned on the field from last year’s number one pitcher, Garrett Richards, who is now playing for James Madison University in Division 1.”
DCC Athletic Director JoLane Tilley explained that transfer opportunities are what make DCC so attractive to many prospective students.
“The advantage is that a student athlete can compete and fine tune his skills so that he can generate good statistics for coaches from other colleges to review,” Tilley said. “Numerous student athletes have attended DCC and have been offered scholarships at four-year colleges and universities to receive an education and to play baseball based on their stats earned while playing at DCC. Without the baseball program, these student athletes would not have chosen to attend DCC.”
Ambrose plans to study business administration at Bluefield College in the fall.
“We’re counting on Spencer to come through for us this spring,” Bailey said. “For this team, the sky’s the limit.”
The DCC Knights will play their first scrimmage of the season against Averett University on Saturday, Feb. 3, at 2 p.m. at Averett’s North Campus.
