The College of the Ozarks Baseball Bobcats continue to build their 2021-2022 roster and add St. James product, Derek Skaggs. 

Skaggs is a 5’-10” Infielder/pitcher who attends John F. Hodge High School in St. James, Missouri.  Skaggs, who is looking for a strong season for the Tigers in 2021, will add more solid depth to the Bobcat roster.  Playing for the Central Missouri Phenom in the summer, Skaggs will continue to develop through the spring and summer months and be ready to contribute to the Baseball Bobcats this fall. 

About the opportunity to continue his career at the next level, Derek states, “I want to thank God for giving me this amazing opportunity to play baseball at the College of the Ozarks. I want to thank all of the coaches that I have had over the years that have helped me get to where I am today. I also want to thank my friends and family for all of the support over the years. Proud to be a bobcat!”
