EDMOND, Okla. (June 6, 2013) – Peyton Blass, a left-handed pitcher who didn’t lose a game during his baseball career at Deer Creek High School, has signed a letter of intent to play collegiately at Oklahoma Christian, OC coach Lonny Cobble said Wednesday.

The 6-foot-2, 185-pound Blass was a three-year letterman at Deer Creek, finishing with a career 12-0 record and 1.73 ERA with 89 strikeouts in 77 1/3 innings.

As a junior, Blass went 5-0 for the Antlers and as a senior, he posted a 7-0 record on the mound while also seeing playing time at first base, right field and designated hitter. He hit .375 with an on-base percentage of .587.

“Peyton is a crafty left-handed pitcher who throws three pitches for strikes,” Cobble said. “He does not make mistakes. He has great control and has been a major part of the Antlers’ success this year and in the past.”

Blass is the second left-hander from Deer Creek to sign with the Eagles, joining Joe Peregrin in OC’s signing class for the 2014 season. Blass and Peregrin will join returnee Kelby Reneau as left-handed pitchers on the OC squad.
