Drafted To Dominant: Dunn Returns To Bullpen
Traverse City, MI — The Beach Bums are excited to announce the return of Scott Dunn to the bullpen for the 2011 season. Dunn was selected in the second round (17th overall) of the annual 2010 Frontier League draft last May. His strong performance at the tryout earned him an invitation to spring training where he solidified his spot as a Beach Bum and became an integral part to the success of the pitching staff as the season progressed.

Dunn was a go-to guy in late innings sharing some of the responsibility with and oftentimes setting up Scott Mueller. He appeared in 29 games and was second on the staff with a 2.20 ERA. Dunn accumulated 52 strikeouts while surrendering 18 free passes in his 57.1 IP and ended the regular season with a 1-2 record.
RHP Scott Dunn pitched with Slippery Rock University in 2009 before signing with the Beach Bums in 2010. For The Rock, Dunn went 7-3 with a 3.82 ERA in 11 games, nine starts. He completed five of those games, tossing 61.1 innings overall. Dunn showed some power stuff, striking out 59 batters on the year, ninth in the PSAC, but also exhibited good control, walking only 16. He twice struck out 10 or more batters in a game. Additionally, he tied for the conference lead with five pickoffs.
Dunn is not new to winning. Besides helping the Beach Bums attain their first ever playoff appearance, his college resume was one of success as well. He helped Slippery Rock to a 36-15 record in 2009, but was also a member of the Marietta College Pioneers NCAA D-III National Championship team in 2006. For the Pioneers he went 3-2 with a 2.95 ERA.
