He is slated to pitch the 2nd inning on Thursday vs. Massachusetts and the 1st inning on Saturday vs. New Jersey.





Owen Wendell-Braly RHP / Millbrook Prep, NY / 2021

He will throw the 3rd inning on Thursday vs. Massachusetts and the 7th inning on Saturday vs. New Jersey.





Matthew Mariano RHP / SS / Shenendehowa, NY / 2021

Mariano started the year on JV but quickly found his way to the varsity level, including pitching in the state final.

Troy Butler RHP / Fort Plain , NY / 2021

Chris Sleeper RHP / 3B / Rush Henrietta, NY / 2021

Sleeper is another arm that thrust his name on a state level with his efforts at the NYS Games. The well put together 6-foot-2 180 pound righty has an up tempo pace with late hand speed out in front. Sat in the 86-88 MPH range and can mix an above average slider at 76-77 MPH.

Sleeper will throw the final 2 innings on Thursday vs. Massachusetts and the 6th inning vs. New Jersey on Saturday.
