Bells Pitching coach Jim Clem on Coats: "Jacob is an outstanding talent and exceptional person as well. Last year was tough, as injuries plagued him, but this year we are hopeful that he will remain healthy and have a big year for the UW and also for the Bellingham Bells. Jacob is a hard worker, with exceptional abilities. He is also a fun player to have on a team. I can honestly say, that we are really looking forward to Jacob returning in a Bells uniform this summer."
