The Peninsula Oilers are excited to announce that Chance Gerloff has signed to return for his second season with the team. The junior second baseman is from the University of California Irvine. Gerloff appeared in 13 games for the Oilers before suffering a back injury, which shut his summer down in 2006. Gerloff hit .256 with four stolen bases and was a big part of the Oilers infield. Gerloff is majoring in social ecology and is from Freedom, Okla.
Junior catcher Aaron Lowenstein of California Irvine will join the Oilers. In 2006, Lowenstein was voted Irvine’s most improved player. He appeared in 52 games behind the plate, throwing out 17 base runners, and hit .246 with 30 hits and 12 RBIs. Lowenstein is majoring in studio art and is from Calabasas, Calif.
