Older Alumni update from 2009
NOLL/SOLL alumni shine at the collegiate level!
During a recent three game series in the Bay Area, Claremont-McKenna All-American sophmore and former Tiger, Pelican and Cub Alex WeberShapiro went 9 for 13 with 3 home runs, a pair of doubles and 8 RBIs. Also playing prominent roles on the CM Stags are sophmore Matt Moyer (Rangers, Mets, Pirates) and freshman Jake Bauch (Mariners, Cubs).
A stone’s throw from the Claremont field, Lucas Fogerty (Reds, Cardinals), Eddie Pickett (Phillies) and Mike Goldberg (Firebirds, Braves) star for Pomona-Pitzer.
Locally, Isai David (Paw Sox, Cubs) is playing at Laney College while Jake Walter (Mariners, Cardinals) is at Skyline College. Eddie Young (Phillies) isn’t playing baseball, but he is local – the Junior linebacker is a defensive stalwart for Cal’s Golden Bears.
Up the West Coast, Alex Briskin (Mariners, Cardinals) is a freshman under Scott Brosius at Linfield College in Oregon. Also at Linfield, altho playing football, is Nick Safir (Marlins, Phillies)
Moving East, we find Jeremy Simon (Yankees, Mariners, Cardinals) in a starring role for Oberlin College in Ohio. Adam Koshkin (Royals, Padres, Phillies)is toeing the rubber for Swarthmore College in Philadelphia and Eric Walterhouse (Giants) transferred from USF to catch for Missouri Baptist in St. Louis.
Several NOLL/SOLL alumni figure prominently in the collegiate Club baseball scene as well. Seth Jones (Giants) plays for the UC Santa Barbara club. Alex Ackerman-Greenberg (Indians, Mariners, Braves) was instrumental in starting a club team at Stanfurd this year with overwhelming success. Also establishing the groundwork for a new club team was Charlie Lesch (Mustangs) who is now delivering his submarine offerings for the Yale club. Frank Bauch (Giants, Reds, Braves) is captain and team president of the Northwestern University club team in Evanston IL.
Last, but not least, baseball is unique among the major sports in that players often skip college entirely to ply their trade professionally. Michael Durant (Marlins, Phillies) was drafted out of Berkeley HS to the Philadelphia Phillies and does just that for the Class-A Lakewood BlueClaws.
Each year as HS graduation looms, many more NOLL/SOLL players move on to colleges and universities with plans to continue the careers that began on local fields. Players, coaches and parents should know that anything is possible for NOLL/SOLL players – on little league fields, high school diamonds, at college or even Major League Baseball.
