While winter may be back in New Milford, CT with several inches of snow, the Varsity Baseball team, led by coaches Todd Mathewson, James Cramphin, and Sean Milano, is already training in preparation for their spring schedule. The team includes a talented group of players and, unique to this season's team, all five of their VI Formers will continue to play in college.
Jake Roper '18, an outfielder, is committed to play at University of Maine (DI), while Jordan Perez '18, also an outfielder, will join the team at Endicott College (DIII). Garrett Crowley '18, Brian Gaughan '18, and Harsha Bollu '18, all pitchers, will play at Fordham University (DI), Central Connecticut State University (DI), and Tufts University (DIII), respectively.
"I am proud of all their hard work to achieve each of their goals of playing in college," notes Todd Mathewson, Head Coach. "It is unique to have all five players in the program moving on to the play at the next level. I expect them to have an excellent and well-played season."
The team heads down to Fort Pierce, FL for their spring break training trip on March 15 through the 22. There, the full squad will compete against other travelling teams from across the country. The players will attend a spring training game to see the World Series Champion, the Houston Astros, and spend a day at DI Stetson University. At Stetson, the team will use the morning for a showcase on their field and then watch the DI team play a game the same evening.
