Josh Williams joins the Sweets from the Golden State of California. Williams is from Fresno County city of Clovis and plays collegiately at UC-Santa Barbara. Williams is currently in his freshman season at Santa Barbara and will start his regular season at San Francisco on February 18th. Williams played high school ball at Buchanan High School where he was a two-year member of the school's varsity program that has won 12 Conference Titles and two National Titles. The 6’2 outfielder also played basketball for the Bears.
Most recently however Williams played summer ball for the Medford Rogues of the Golden State Collegiate Baseball League. Williams said his experience in Southern Oregon was incredibly valuable looking towards playing with the Sweets.
“I’ve dealt with it playing with the Rogues this summer, granted I only played for a month due to my high school season getting backed up. But for the month I did play for the Rogues it was Baseball 24/7 and I’d say I really liked that” said Williams.
The Rogues previously were a member of the West Coast League being in the WCL from 2013-2015.
