BB: NJAC: New Jersey Athletic Conference
« on: December 30, 2005, 11:57:20 am »
The NJAC website link.




Two NJAC teams in the preseason top thirty.  Rowan #5 and Kean tied at #20 with Ithaca, MSU also getting some consideration.

I hope there is some activity here, NJCU had a team that was almost all freshmen last season and they had a pretty good season playing in the CUNY.  I hope they have some success this year in the NJAC.

The good news is everyone of those 20+ freshmen, including all 8 freshmen starters, are back this season.

That's really good news, I think there is real promise for those kids if they stick around for the next three years.

Interesting site. You can see by where a MLB player went to school.

The Profs' baseball season preview is online.  Curious to see that Robert Rose of Piscataway, who was listed as an incoming QB for Rowan this Fall that never made their roster is in line for a spot in the rotation.

http://www.rowan.edu/sports/spring/baseball/releases/2006Baseball/BaseballOutlook06.pdf

Profs key additions include:

OF Tim Edmeads - D3 JUCO Player of the Year for perennial D3 JUCO powerhouse Gloucester CC, two years of eligibility.  Drafted by the White Sox out of high school in the 49th Round.  Played his freshman year at West Virginia where he hit .284 (21-74), 2, 7.  Edmeads was the 2003 Courier Post Player of the Year at Buena H.S.

RHP Alexy Still - Transfer from NAIA Vanguard University (CA), two years of eligibility, had played at Camden CC, Cherry Hill West Grad.

RHP Kevin O'Hara - All-South Jersey frosh from perennial H.S. power Gloucester Catholic figures to be in the rotation.

3B Miguel Sosa - transfer from D1 FIU with three years of eligibility, never played for the powerhouse program that has seen at least two players sign pro deals every year since 1989.  Ranero's stop at Barry Univ. had to help this kid coming in, who was born in Miami.

Rowan begins their season on Saturday against Virginia Wesleyan and Cortland State.  I think #5 in the country is way too high considering the pitching they lost, but it only proves how most "national polls" in D3 just look at previous years' results and program reputation over true talent evaluation.

P.S.  Rose threw for over 1,400 yards in H.S. and a school-record 25 touchdowns.  Wonder why he didn't come out for football, or did he and didn't make the cut?  Perhaps play JV?  Anyone with info, please feel free to fill us in.  He certainly could have contributed last season...

Hey JPS,

Is that your voice on the Yankee Ticket line?  I'm like I know that voice.  Guess who finally has season tickets?  Good for customers and stuff.  Should have done it a while ago.  I wanna try and accumulate a nice block of tickets over the next couple of years so when the new stadium is done, I'm set.

JT,

Yep, part of my duties involves voicing the phone system.  The general greeting is a Yankees player on the main number, but the majority of the other prompts and departments are me.

Let me know when you're coming out to the stadium this season.  If you come early, I can give you a quick tour of the press area.

New stadium is coming in 2009.  Groundbreaking is this May.

I hear Orihel is already lifting and throwing again.  When does Spring conditioning start?

Also, I saw the baseball team on Sunday.  Defense isn't great, and the bottom of the order is a bit light.  But batters 1-5 are quite nice.  The Edmeads kid is going to be a star offensively.  And Ranero was running constantly, very aggressive.

The young pitcher, Robert Rose, looked nice.  Nice fastball, very nice curve that looked like he could throw at two different speeds and still locate.  He needs to develop physically, but he has great potential.

Since there is no Softball board yet I will post this here.  The WPU softball coach has been named the coach of the Israeli Olympic team:
