Fighting Tiger Baseball Ranked 10th

Written By Editor on 2/18/18 | 2/18/18

It should come as no surprise to SUNY Cobleskill fans that as the Fighting Tigers relaunch the college’s men’s baseball after a six-year hiatus that the team is currently ranked 10th among the league’s 10 teams in the North Eastern Athletic Conference’s (NEAC) 2018 Pre-Season Coaches Poll. As the nation’s newest program prepares for the upcoming campaign first-year Head Coach Rob Fisk is approaching the season distinctive goals and expectations.

“We intend to be a team that is going to compete with both conference and non-conference opponents and present a fundamentally sound team that is: disciplined, energetic and enthusiastic from the starting line-up to the last man on the bench,” said Fisk. “That’s my expectation for our program this year.”

With a roster of all-newcomers the Fighting Tigers will be looking for contributions from a number of different players in a number of areas.

Offensively and defensively Coach Fisk sees the infield as one of the team’s strengths as junior first baseman Nate Carinci, Oneida, N.Y., Jefferson Community College, will be counted on as a middle of the order anchor, freshman shortstop Mitchell Holmes, Dartmouth, Mass., Bristol County Agricultural High School, will be counted on as a top of the line-up staple and freshman third baseman Jacob Hoffee, Lyndonville, N.Y., Lyndonville Central High School, will be providing a productive left handed bat to the middle of the order.

On the mound the Cobleskill pitching staff will be led by junior right hander Jordyn Schwark, Kingston, N.Y., SUNY Adirondack, a hard throwing right handed starter who will also see time in center field, freshman Ryan O’Keefe, Albany, N.Y., Albany High School, a crafty left handed starter and freshman Daniel Wade, Jefferson, N.Y., Jefferson Central High School, a tall lanky right handed starter.

The Fighting Tigers are scheduled to open the 2018 season on Saturday February 24th when they travel to Aston Pa. to face the Nittany Lions of Penn State Brandywine for a pair of games at the MSI Sports Village beginning at 12:00 p.m.
