**Dragons On The Field**

  • On Thursday, July 25, Reds 2019 first-round draft pick Nick Lodolo made his full-season baseball debut by starting the game against Great Lakes for the Dragons. Though Lodolo only pitched three innings, he looked very impressive, even getting high praise from Reds catcher Kyle Farmer who was rehabbing with the Dragons and was behind the plate for Lodolo’s start. The left-hander and first pitcher off the board the past June struck out five and allowed 3 hits with one earned run to take a no decision. Lodolo did not walk a batter and has started his pro career with 14.1 innings over seven starts without walking a batter.
  • The Dragons have seven players on Baseball America’s Top 30 Reds Prospects list according to the mid-season update. This group is led by the Reds’ 2019 first-round draft pick, left-hander Nick Lodolo. The former TCU Horned Frog was the seventh overall selection in the June draft and the first pitcher taken. Lodolo slots in as the Reds fourth-rated prospect. Right behind him is the Reds fourth-round draft pick in the 2018 draft, Michael Siani. The outfielder is the seventh-rated prospect in the organization after being selected out of high school in Philadelphia. Outfielder Mariel Bautista (#16 prospect) remains in the 16-slot from the preseason rankings. Other top prospects on the Dragons roster include infielders Juan Martinez (#22) and Bren Spillane (#30), the latter was the 2018 Big 10 Player of the Year at Illinois before being chosen in the third round. Right-handers Lyon Richardson (#17) and James Marinan (#19) are both expected to make significant impacts on the mound this season for the Dragons.
  • Former Dragons player and hitting coach Luis Bolivar returns for his third year as manager. Former major leaguer Kevin Mahar returns for his third season as bench coach while former major league pitcher Seth Etherton is back for his second year as pitching coach. Mike Devereaux, a 12-year MLB veteran, joins Bolivar’s staff as hitting coach after spending last season in that role with the Pensacola Blue Wahoos, Double-A affiliate of the Reds at that time.

He is a great ambassador for the sport in our community and we can think of no one better to serve as a mentor for Crew SC Academy players.”

This year, Crew SC ended its exclusive relationship with player development group Sporting Columbus and the Club is currently re-evaluating the player development affiliation opportunities in the area of youth development camps throughout the region. Broadening the Club’s youth player development reach, Washington is tasked with leading affiliation outreach. The affiliation partnership efforts do not affect operations of the Crew SC Academy.

Continued Bezbatchenko: “A key priority for Crew SC has been reconnecting the local soccer community and Dante is expertly positioned to do just that. His respect for the tradition of this Club and ability to connect with alumni and potential affiliate partners to broaden our reach will allow the Club to continue to grow its impact in Ohio.”

During his time with Nationwide, Washington worked with multiple departments to launch different initiatives and assisted with relationship building efforts for sports groups in the portfolio. Washington’s background also includes a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree from The Ohio State University’s Fisher College of Business.

During his 13-year professional soccer career, Washington spent six seasons with Crew SC, playing for the Crew during the Club’s inaugural season in 1996, before returning and play for the Black & Gold for the 2000, 2001, 2002, 2004 and 2005 seasons. In all, Washington made 76 regular-season appearances for Crew SC, scoring 28 goals and providing 14 assists, while helping the Club win the 2002 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup – the Crew’s first piece of silverware – as well as the 2004 Supporters’ Shield.

A two-time MLS All-Star (1997-2000), Washington also played for FC Dallas (1996-1999) and Real Salt Lake (2005), finishing his career with 170 MLS regular-season appearances (113 starts), 52 goals and 32 assists. Prior to becoming a professional player, Washington played for Radford University from 1989-1993, and was named to the First Team All-American in 1991.
