You would think.

Was a New York player-of-the year out of high school, and had a solid Rookie All-America season as a Coastal frosh recruit on an NCAA tourney squad. Coastal had a losing record the following season and his numbers were down (believe an injury). A Poughkeepsie area product, he expressed a desire to come home and be able to play in front of family. Cortland was welcoming. Both benefited.
Went back and checked Coastal rosters during Lamando's stay and, yes, many championship regulars were classmates of his.

As for Sam, we wish a team with Florida-based training had been the drafter. Certainly could have witnessed his start in the Florida Gulf League. As it is Chisox in Arizona

Collegiate Baseball preseason No. 1 ranked Cortland a month away from season opener at Salisbury MD. RDragons chart 14 games to the south before conference start at New Paltz whose new pilot is Arlan Freeman, erstwhile aide at Stevens. Corts show 20 road tests before finishing with 13 of final 15 at home Wallace Field.

No Florida excusion in the works but Cortland has plentiful early play in Maryland, Virginia and Pennsy vs. the likes of preseason ranked Randolph Macon (8), Salisbury (30), Susquehanna (32), Shenendoah (35), Johns Hopkins (40)

Decorated Joe Brown again needs to reload a bit in his 18th season. Good place to start is returning pitcher A. Weingarten, 9-1 in Dragons' World Series title run in '15. Did not play last year during 43-8 run and another strong WS showing.

St. John Fisher 9th in preseason list, Oswego 14th. Keystone PA directly behind Cortland

And Cortland also No. 1 in D3 Baseball preseason poll, step ahead of Keystone. Fisher and Oswego touted as well
