The Albany Dutchmen are 4-2 through the first week of the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League season, and these five players are a primary reason why:
Ryan Gasporra (catcher/designated hitter): Sports a .417 batting average with five RBI and seven walks in the four games he's started. He'll drive opposing pitchers crazy with his plate discipline.
Zach Remillard (infielder): Never mind the fact that he just completed his senior season playing for LaSalle Institute. The Latham native has a .412 batting average in five starts and leads the team in RBI (6). He's also hit one of the two team home runs in the opening week -- a moon shot over Amsterdam's tall left field wall.
Will Remillard (catcher): Not to be completely outdone by his younger brother, Will has a .389 batting average, a .556 slugging percentage and a team-high three doubles in his five games.
Cody Tollison (starting pitcher): Though he has yet to record a win, Tollison has been solid in his first two starts. The Middle Tennessee State lefty owns a 3.00 earned run average and has struck out 13 batters in nine innings pitched.
Trevor Lacosse (relief pitcher): When the Christian Brothers Academy graduate enters a game, it's been bad news for the other team. Lacosse has a 2-0 record with one save and a 0.00 ERA, and he's only allowed one hit and struck out 11 in 5.2 innings of work.
Keep an eye on these five players throughout the rest of the PGCBL season, as well as the rest of the Albany Dutchmen.
