    Damn....one of the kids--preseason offensive player of the year is committed to UHart.

    Nice get for them...

    Bardzell is one of the country’s talented outfielders and hitters this season. The University of Hartford signee finished the season with a .585 batting average, 10 doubles, 4 triples, 18 home runs, 55 RBI and stole 27 bases.

    Bardzell’s 18 homers tied the New Jersey single-season record for home runs set in 2009 by Los Angeles Angels star Mike Trout while at Millville H.S. He also tied a school record for 55 RBI that was set in 1989 by Rutgers standout Kevin James.

    During the WHUS broadcast of today's series finally against Central Florida, Chris Jones said that he thinks UConn baseball has another California transfer coming into the Husky program for next year. He did not provide a name.

    If Winkel is drafted is will likely be very late. Game on CPTV Sports last night indicated that he has missed the entire season due to a broken hand and has not had any at bats since the fall.

    Worrying about your recruits signing with a major league team out of high school is a good problem to have...right?

    I just started checking summer ball rosters for UConn player assignments. The Bristol Blues of the Futures League list a UConn pitcher named Jacob Wallace. That was news to me. Turns out he is a senior right hand pitcher from Methuen, MA, who will be joining the Huskies next season.

    Wallace returns to put Rangers on his back

    Chris Jones during one late baseball broadcast had mentioned that he thought UConn had a California transfer coming into the UConn baseball program. I would think we have found our man on this one.

    No mention that I have seen of any of the UConn high school recruits getting picked in the draft.

    Gotta love that Amity/Sal Coppola pipeline... Andy's brother Teddy was a pitcher on the team as well.

    Amity should've been nationally ranked. There are atleast 7 D-1 players on the roster.

    It's looking like a pretty good pipeline indeed. Vinny Siena and Sam Nepiarsky have already played for UConn, with Andy Hague and the two Winkel brothers still to come. Given how good the Amity baseball program is, it wouldn't surprise me if there were other Huskies with the Amity connection that I missed.

    Twin brother...Teddy is a left-handed, OF/P

    Great kids both great students with great character, from a great family. I've coached them and gotten to know them very well. I heard that Andy was close to committing. He's a tough, hand-nosed kid. High energy, tireless work ethic. Slick- fielding 2B, with great speed. He's a great fit for the program.

    Andy Hague certainly sounds like the type of player that Coach Penders would be interested in.
