Seven Panthers play in NECBL, FCBL and Perfect Game leagues
PLYMOUTH, N.H. – Seven members of the Plymouth State University baseball team participated in high-level prospect leagues over the summer.
Junior David Sampson (Bellingham, Mass.) headlined the group, pitching for the Upper Valley Nighthawks in the New England Collegiate Baseball League (NECBL). Sampson led the Nighthawks to a first place finish in their division and led the team with five wins while posting a 3.51 ERA over 13 appearances. The 6-4 righty recorded 22 strikeouts against 10 walks and gave up just one base hit in the playoffs.
Classmate Geoff Kayo (Londonderry, N.H.) played for the second-straight summer with the Winnipesaukee Muskrats, also of the NECBL. The 6-0 righty made seven appearances and picked up a win while tossing 12 innings. Joining Kayo on the Muskrats were junior Josh Goulet (Nashua, N.H.) and sophomores Andrew Salta (Laconia, N.H.) and Jimmy Zimolka (Londonderry, N.H.). Goulet saw extensive time, getting 80 at bats and going deep once in his 32 games played. Salta and Zimolka both gained valuable experience.
Senior Cam Ruziak (Sterling, Mass.), a First Team All-Little East Conference selection in the spring, began the season with the Nashua Silver Knights of the Futures Collegiate Baseball League (FCBL).
Senior Brady Larson (Brunswick, Maine) was also in action over the summer, playing for the Adirondack Trail Blazers in the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League (PGCBL). Larson made nine appearances with the team.
