    Looks like we'll have to sweat out the MLB draft with Winkle

    Who is our West Coast recruiter? or what is our connection out west? We've been getting a bunch of kids from Cali over the past few years.

    Stafford, not Stratford.

    I believe @UCCornelius was referring to the year Broadhurst graduates HS in.

    That's how I took it. Just to be sure, I googled Mr. Broadhurst this afternoon. Perfect Game and the other baseball recruiting websites usually report on a recruit's high school graduation year. And yes, Luke Broadhurst graduates high school in 2017.

    It's good to have new people to the Boneyard finding out and reporting on these recruiting commitments.

    I missed that, I'm from the same town. Luke grew up with a bat and ball in hand, went to school with his older brother. Always knew he'd be a good one, not too bad for a kid from a very small class S school like Stafford.

    Seems like Stafford has been doing a nice job of developing ballplayers as of late. Even though Jimmy Titus goes to East Catholic, I'm assuming he was involved with Stafford's youth baseball program. Also, if I'm not mistaken, they just sent a pitcher to Columbia for this coming year. Very impressive.

    Agreed. Hopefully once the HS season starts, we can all pitch in and report on game results and performance in a similar manner to how it's done on the football and basketball boards.

    Great coach (used to pitch in the minors until injury ended career), also really the only successful program at the school. Tough with such a small talent pool, also as you mentioned several top athletes in the youth levels go to schools like EC. Titus and Broadhurst actually played in the CT little league state semifinals in 2010. Simpson and Broadhurst lead SHS to the #1 seed in S last year. Fun to watch, play the game right.

    Good stuff. Who knows, maybe once I'm back in CT in May I'll make the drive up and catch a game or two.

    Sorry about the confusion, I indeed meant graduating HS in 2017. As for Stratford/Stafford, brain fart on my part.

    That's the first I've seen reported here of Benjamin Maycock committing to UConn.

    Noticed that a couple of days ago. Might be a PG database issue - they've been listing a ton of random JUCO commits from the past 4 years under their "recent commits" heading as of late.

    I lived in Stafford from '93 to '03. I coached in their little league program during those years. During that time the league established relationships with former major league players and held numerous clinics and fund raisers. Sam Horn, Rich Gedman, George Foster, Oil Can Boyd, Roy White, and Bill Lee all attended and ran many of these clinics. They were very candid and personable and made it fun to be involved. It looks like those players are now cashing in on all that hard work!
