SIGNED IN THE FRONTIER LEAGUE

Louis Cohen is a 2015 graduate of Division 1 Cal State Northridge of the highly competitive Big West Conference. Since college Louis has taken his career overseas to Europe and Australia where he has continued to develop his game and has built a reputation for himself as a durable starting pitcher who throws strikes.

In his first season in Australia he was the Capital Territory State League MVP after striking out 195 batters and going 17-1 for the eventual champions, the ACT bandits. This performance earned him a call-up to play for the Canberra Cavalry of the Australian Baseball League where he threw 25 innings with an era of 3.60.

In the summer of 2016 Louis took his game to Europe to play in the German Bundesliga North for the Hamburg Stealers and once again lead the league in strikeouts with 105 after throwing 10 complete games including 2 shutouts.

Louis was back in Australia for the 2016-2017 and once again playing for both the Cavalry where he earned two “ABL Player of the Week” recognitions while having a career at 4-0 with an era of 2.61 highlighted by a 7 inning, 10 strikeout performance vs. the Sydney Blue Sox.

Louis’ success in the ABL earned him his first indy pro contract in the Atlantic League with the Lancaster Barnstormers for hte 2017 season. Unfortunately Louis was released and soon thereafter signed on with the Solingen Alligators of the German Bundesliga where threw 50 innings striking out 59 while holding down a 2.34 era. 

Louis is currently playing in the California Winter League (stats) in hopes to sign a professional contract again. He is currently fielding any offers from around the globe.
