Wow! Awesome article.
Read that article. Whatever happened to Anthony Kay?
Finishing his rehab from Tommy John Surgery. Should be a go for Mets Spring Training.
In addition to the AAC teams listed above, UConn is playing three games with St. John's (a 2 seed) and a game with Coastal Carolina (3 seed). Other UConn opponents projected to making the field are Yale and Bryant.
It would be great to see St. John's (regularly one of the best teams in the northeast) back on the schedule on a regular basis once the new baseball facility is operational.

I heard an awesome rumor that WHUS plans to have a former player in the booth alongside Jones for the season opener broadcast. I hope it’s true. These 4 days can’t pass quick enough.
Accolades keep on rolling in...

>>These are NOT pro prospect lists, but they do take pure talent into consideration. Players who proved themselves against top competition in summer ball and look poised for breakout years might rank higher on the list than other players with gaudier stats from last spring.<<
Predicting Prato / Feole / Gardner may be on these preseason lists next year.
I believe Gardner is draft eligible. If he has a good year he could be gone
I am pleased about all the buzz for the upcoming tournament! We will have to bee very good to win all 3 games.

Three infielders return from last season. As expected Anthony Prato’s name will be penciled in at shortstop. Most likely he will be in the leadoff spot in the lineup as well. Conor Moriarty can play multiple positions, but it sounds like he will spend most of his playing 3B.
The coaches love Chris Winkel’s defense at 1B. However, the coaches think his speed can be put to better use in the outfield. The coaches believe that Winkel’s hitting is coming around and that he is a hard worker, so it sounds like he will be a starter somewhere at the start of the season. Another 1B candidate is Matt Bonvicini. The coaches call Bonvicini a born hitter who they are very impressed with, but they also say he needs to work on his defense. Avery Point JUCO Vinnie Pallisco had a very good fall at the bat, it sounds like he could make the team as a backup at 1B and bring his bat off the bench. Not mentioned in this video is catcher Thad Phillips, who played 1B at the alumni game. There was an article in the Willimantic Chronicle not too long ago that suggested that Phillips and Zac Susi could both see time at 1B when not catching, so we’ll see if that happens.
Assuming Moriarty is at 3B, it would seem the two leading candidates for 2B are JUCO transfer Mike Woodworth, who according to the coaches can play any of the infield positions well and is a fundamentally sound player. Christian Fedko can play 2B, 3B, and possibly the outfield. The coaches love his potential. Also in the infield mix is Andy Hague, who is a strong defensive infielder with plenty of speed. And last, Luke Broadhurst is an infielder with good size and strength. Broadhurst is coming off a shoulder injury, but the coaches think he will be available to play at the beginning of the season.

Both guys have us making a regional, possibly going further.
They both praise Penders and agree we are the best program in the Northeast.
Any freshman looking at breaking into the lineup this season?
Christian Fedko seems to be in the mix at 2B.
Along w/ Infielders Hague, Bonvicini and Broadhurst. Pitchers Simeone and Dunlop as well.
Looks like Gardner will get the opening series nod as the Sunday starter
This Hartford Courant preseason article that talks a lot about Tim Cate also mentions Gardner as the Sunday starter.
