Summer Baseball Underway, 13 Warriors in Action Across New England

NORTH ANDOVER, Mass. – Highlighted by eight players and pitching coach Nick Barese scattered across the Futures Collegiate Baseball League, as well as four more in other summer baseball leagues, the Merrimack baseball team is well represented across New England after a historic 2013 campaign.

After helping the Warriors go 30-19 en route to a runner-up finish in the Northeast-10 Conference Championship Finals, the summer baseball season – eligible to all players with at least a year of college eligibility remaining – will allow Merrimack's representatives to hone their skills and improve against some of the top-flight competition in the region.

In its third season of existence this summer, the FCBL has emerged as one of the top summer leagues in both the region and nation, and is the league that the majority of Merrimack's summer ballers call home.

Junior right-hander Alek Morency (Nashua, N.H.) has taken his talents to the nearby Nashua Silver Knights – the reigning FCBL champions – after earning second-team all-conference and all-regional honors this past year. He joins NE-10 and East Region Rookie of the Year Frank Crinella (Springfield, Mass.), as well as Pitching Coach Nick Barese – the second-year head coach of the Wachusett Dirt Dawgs – along with several other Warriors to take to the diamond this summer.

Below is a full list of Merrimack's summer ball players, along with links to their respective league and team's home page, and a link to summer statistics (if available).

Check back over the remainder of the summer for updates regarding the Warriors' summer ball progress.
