Idaho Falls Bandits release 2018 roster and schedule

Just in time for the state baseball tournaments, the Idaho Falls Bandits released their summer roster.

The Bandits — an American Legion AA team compiled of players from Skyline, Bonneville, Hillcrest and Idaho Falls — start their season June 1 in Peoria, Ariz.

This summer’s roster includes four players from Skyline, five players from Bonneville, four from Hillcrest and four from Idaho Falls. A culmination of underclassmen, upperclassmen and first-year college students, this year’s roster also includes Southern Virginia and former Skyline third baseman Bridger Taylor.

Taylor was a member of the Bandits’ 40-4 season a year ago. Along with some new faces, the Bandits will have a new coach at the helm: Bonneville head coach Ryan Alexander.

Alexander takes over for former coach Joldy Watts, current pitching coach for Utah Valley University.
