CAMBRIDGE, MA -- Five days before the first game in Lesley baseball history, Lynx players have chosen catcher Jeff Gonzalez and pitcher Noah Shaw as team co-captains, head coach Mike Rocco announced today.
"I am extremely excited that Jeff and Noah have been selected as captains by their peers," Rocco said. "Since we started in the fall, these two have without question led our program both on and off the field by their words and their actions."
Gonzalez, a sophomore, will co-captain with the junior Shaw, who brings to Lesley a level of familiarity with the New England Collegiate Conference. A year ago as a starter for NECC Champion Daniel Webster, the southpaw went 3-1 with a 4.24 earned run average and a team-best .237 opponents' batting average.
Lesley opens its inaugural season this Saturday, March 5, at 3:00 p.m. with a doubleheader against Colby-Sawyer College at the 2011 RussMatt Central Florida Invitational in Auburndale, FL.
