Good info regarding Nastasi. He's a 6'5" righty who was 6-0 for his senior Babe Ruth team that won the New England championship. I couldn't find out how they did in the nationals, however. Bob Melley was the leading hitter batting .465.Yep. I saw it on the old site. Just wanted to add the newbies. Thanks.
Pres. Herbst, in a radio interview stressed the importance of the hoops practice facility. She estimated the cost around 30mil. She added improvements to baseball & soccer facilities would increase the tab to around 50mil.
I do believe Pendergast would like the baseball team to play more games in the minor league parks in Bpt., N. Britian & Norwich, too.
From what Herbst said 30 of the needed 50 mil would be for hoops. The other 20 mil would cover baseball, soccer and other sports.Upgrades to the fields would be great. Where will that kind of money come from? Basketball rules here. That's the bottom line. Non revenue sports can't pay for state of the art facilities. SEC programs have gate fees and tons of fans willing to pay. I don't think we have it yet.
