Bells sign pair of Stanford infielders

The Bellingham Bells, a summer, wood bat, collegiate baseball team that plays in the West Coast League, will add two Stanford University infielders to their 2015 roster. Infielders Beau Branton and Jesse Kuet will join returning Bells pitcher Andrew Summerville on the Bells roster for summer 2015.

Branton, a native of Honolulu, is a freshman infielder for the Cardinal. While at Punahou High School, Branton was a three-time all-conference selection and was named to the All-State team twice. In 2014, as a senior at Punahou, he was awarded the Interscholastic League of Honolulu regular season batting title after finishing the season with a .460 average.

The Bells may look for Branton to play second base, shortstop or third base, General Manager Nick Caples said in a press release.

A freshman from Huntington Beach, Calif., Kuet is also an infielder for the Cardinal. At Huntington Beach High School, he was a four-year letterman and starter at the shortstop position. As a senior in 2014, he led Huntington Beach to the 2014 Sunset League championship and was named to the 2014 Orange County South All-Star team.
