June 11, 2014
Stony Brook, N.Y. - Thirteen members of the Stony Brook baseball team will head separate ways this summer as they embark on three months of summer league baseball with some of the top amateur summer league teams in the country.
Junior Cole Peragine (Belle Ewart, Ontario) and sophomore Tyler Honahan (Parker, Colo.) will head to the prestigious Cape Cod Baseball League (CCBL) to compete for the Orleans Firebirds. Peragine hit a stout .287 in his junior campaign at Stony Brook, swiping a team-high 13 bags, while Honahan recorded a 7-2 record on the bump with a 2.89 ERA.
The largest contingent of #Seawolves will spend their summers in the New England Collegiate Baseball League (NECBL). Sophomore Nick Brass (Shirley, N.Y.) and freshmen Toby Handley (Whitbey, Ontario) and Cameron Stone (West Haven, Conn.) will remain teammates, all pitching for the Mystic Schooners. Stone thrived as a rookie in a late-inning relief role, earning All-Conference and Louisville Slugger Freshman All-American accolades after posting a 1.96 ERA with eight saves. They will be opposed by sophomore Jack Parenty (Wantagh N.Y.), who will compete for the Vermont Mountaineers.
Three Seawolves, including NCBWA first-team freshman All-American Casey Baker (Ronkonkoma, N.Y.), will remain in the state of New York to compete in the Hamptons Collegiate Baseball League (HCBL). Baker and freshman Joe Guercio (Kings Park, N.Y.) will play for the North Fork Ospreys, while freshman Connor Doyle (Maspeth, N.Y.) will showcase his talents with the Sag Harbor Whalers.
Sophomore Johnny Caputo (Toronto, Ontario) will head to North Carolina to play for the Morehead City Marlins of the Coastal Plains League, junior Robert Chavarria (Garden Grove, Calif.), a California native, will head home to try to build off of his .292 batting average with the Seawolves in 2014 with the Los Angeles Brewers of the California Collegiate League (CCL), freshman Jeremy Giles (Claremont, Calif.) will play for the Laramie Colts in the Rocky Mountain Baseball League (RMBL) and sophomore Tim Knesnik (Milford, Pa.) makes the long venture to Alaska to play for the Chugiak-Eagle River Chinooks of the Alaska Baseball League (ABL) after sporting a 2.39 ERA for SBU in 2014.
