More news out of the Lemurs, as the team says they are close to signing former TAMIU pitcher Manolo Mendoza to a contract. The former Dustdevil wowed scouts for much of the year hitting in the low 90's with his fast ball. Mendoza struggled his senior year going 0-3 with three saves. He struck out 17 batters over 27 innings, while only allowing eight walks. Sources with the team say he has verbally agreed to play and they hope to have the contract signed in the next 24 hours.
