AJ Karosas Joins the ECC Kats
Slick middle infielder AJ Karosas will continue his academic and baseball career next August at Erie County Community College. AJ committed to the KATS baseball program this past week. Congratulations to AJ and his family.
AJ hits at the top of the Terriers order and does an outstanding job of setting the table for the heart of the order. He grinds out at bats and is a tough out. AJ is also an excellent base runner and consistently crosses the plate on route to Terrier victories.
On the defensive side AJ is blessed with soft hands and an accurate arm. He was a staple in the middle of the diamond last season for Rick Johnston's 17u Terriers that went on to claim the PBLO championship.
In 2006, ECC celebrated its 60th anniversary. In the past six decades, the college has grown from a small two- year technical institute to a three- campus college serving more than 14,000 students. Today, it is the second largest college in Western New York. In 47 games this past year the KATS garnered a 27-20 record. They fell in the NJCAA Region III Tournament and had four players named to the All Region Team. Best of luck to AJ with the balance of his Terriers career in preparation for college next fall.
