Matt Clark, a freshman third baseman from the University of California, Santa Barbara, has joined the 2006 Oilers. After Clark’s senior year at Etiwanda High School he was named as one of Team One’s top 10 third base prospects in America. The 6-foot-5 Clark also was named as one of the nation’s top 100 prospects at the Perfect Game National Showcase. Clark, son of former Baltimore Orioles pitcher Terry Clark, is from Fontana, Calif., and has not selected his college course of study.
Returning assistant coach Wes Davis was forced to resign from the 2006 Oilers coaching staff. The University of Texas at Tyler assistant coach has accepted a full-time position that will not allow the time needed to return to Alaska. The Oilers are saddened by the loss but excited to hear of Davis’ new direction. The team will be announcing a replacement in the near future.
