COLLEGE PARK, Md. - With the 2013 season now in the rearview, 21 returning underclassmen in the Maryland baseball program will begin preparations for the 2014 season as summer league play begins in wooden bat leagues throughout the country.
Six Terrapins will spend their summer in the prestigious Cape Cod League, equaling the total from last season which is believed to be the most Maryland has sent to the league. Of the six players assigned to the league, five are pitchers including four hurlers who just completed their first year in College Park. Righthanders Kevin Mooney and Jared Price, and lefthander Alex Robinson will play for the Falmouth Commodores; lefthander Jake Drossner will suit up for the Harwich Mariners.
Four positional players and two pitchers will remain in the area and play in the Cal Ripken League, with right-handed pitcher Brandon Casas, left-handed pitcher Robert Galligan, and first baseman LaMonte Wade suiting up for the Baltimore Redbirds. Lefthander Zach Morris will pitch for the Bethesda Big Train, while outfielder Greg Olenski will play for the DC Gray's, and right-handed pitcher Bobby Ruse will play for Youse's Orioles.
Maryland has five players assigned to the New England Collegiate Baseball League: infielder Jose Cuas and catcher Kevin Martir to the North Adams Steeplecats, outfielders Kyle Moore and Anthony Papio to the Sanford Mainers, and left-handed pitcher Jamie Pashuck to the Danbury Westerners.
Shortstop Blake Schmit and Charlie White will play for the Eau Claire Express of the Northwoods League; outfielder Andrew Amaro will play for the Wilmington Sharks of the Coastal Plains League; and left-handed pitcher Ben Brewster will suit up for the Lexington Snipes of the Midwest Collegiate League.
