Sophomore Baseball Players Honored

Baseball coach DJ Whittemore honored 11 sophomores between games on Sunday, April 27. A ceremony, which included the players’ parents, recognized sophomores Spencer Greer, Sam Hall, Conor Harber, Connor Klein, Rayne Raven, Joey Crunkilton, Alex Fife, Tony Roque, Christian Stolo, Jeremy Alderman and Spenser Dorsey.

“It was the first time in nine years that I had to talk about the players immediately after a loss,” Whittemore said. “It was particularly frustrating because we gave up a season high in runs and it was only the third time in 48 games where we gave up more than six runs.

“But we try to have a big-picture approach to how much those players have accomplished; it’s a lot more than just one game. When all 11 are graduating on time, that speaks volumes on them as a group and individually. I’m not going to compare this to a tour of duty, but it’s not easy to make it through this program two straight years. They have high character, great work ethic and a love and passion for the game of baseball.”

“This year’s schedule has been the most difficult we’ve ever played and to be 34-14 right now is pretty remarkable,” Whittemore said. “They deserve all of the credit. Their sweat equity, their buy-in, their chemistry, that’s allowed them to be so successful.”
