2010 Season Outlook In 2010, Gloucester County College enters this season coming off a 38–10 record, that was filled with ups and downs. We ended last year as a Region XIX Runner-up. It was a disappointing end to the season for the Roadrunners but we plan to reload to improve in 2010 Every year the baseball program has been synonymous with excellence. With five national championships (1992, 1993, 1999, 2000, 2005) under its belt and 32 players advancing to the ranks of professional baseball and countless numbers advancing to four-year programs, the tradition of winning and succeeding has become customary — this year should be no different. “We are attracting high-profile student athletes who are willing to work on and off the field to continue the proud tradition of Gloucester Baseball,” says Head Coach Mike. “We are extremely balanced team that will score a lot of runs and play excellent defense.” Gloucester returns 1 everyday starters and four pitchers from last years team for Mike Dickson who enters his fifth season as the Roadrunners’ head coach. The infield will be solid throughout. The roadrunners will count on freshmen Logan Morello, Mike Schatzman and Jake Schulze to cover in the corner position. JJ Williams and Logan Morello will play short. Freshman Ronny Tanner and Sophomore transfer Brett Burdsall will both see time at second base. “This is an experienced and talented group of infielders,” commented Dickson. Sophomore transfer Dave Prager along with Schultz will give us a right-handed and left-handed first basemen. JJ Williams and Logan Morello are very talented on the left side of the infield and Mike Schatzman was a former All-South Jersey Player. Complementing the sophomores is freshman Dan Lang who will round out the infielders

Outfield This outfield group will show a combination of power and speed. Left field will be held by returning player sophomore Edwin Frias and freshman John Garozzo. Alexi Colon a transfer from Dominican College can play center. Colon hit 9 HR at Dominican and possess a plus outfield arm. Right Field will be patrolled by Mark Malec and Francisco Rodriguez Catching The catching position will be the strong part of the team. This three-some shows tremendous depth. All three catchers will see time at other positions during the year. Sophomore transfers Francisco Rodriguez, Jim Best both add positives to a much needed position. Best a transfer from Hofstra is the groups best power hitter and will DH when he is not catching. Rodriguez a transfer from Louisburg College had an extremely live arm. Freshman Matt Cuervo was an AllWest Jersey player in High School and will see time behind the plate and at DH. Pitching The Roadrunners will attack with a three-man rotation and a couple spot starters. Nick Alloway, Mike Ney and Freshman Rob Swift will lead the staff. All three of these guys are plus velocity guys. Alloway and Swift are both lower 90s guys who will compete for innings. Ney our closer last year will be in the starting rotation this year. “Mike commands three pitches” Commented Dickson. “He may be the leader of our staff” Sophomores Matt Smith and Frank Vitrano will compete for the fourth starter and for the top reliever. Freshman Matt Spillman, Brandon Kenish and Osiris Garcia will help in the bullpen. Francisco Rodriguez could emerge as the closer.
