Ralston Commits To Seton Hall
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Sunday, September 27, 2009
Cambridge, ON - Lefty ace Billy Ralston has secured a scholarship to Seton Hall University. He will be the first Terrier alumni in history to pitch in the highly competative NCAA D1, Big East Conference. Billy will have his hands full with such teams as Notre Dame, Georgetown, Pittsburgh, Rutgers, Louisville, St.Johns, West Virginia, Villanova and Cincinnati. Ralston has been with the Terriers for the past two seasons under the tutelage of pitching coach Rick Birmingham.

He currently harnesses an 85-88 mph fastball, knee buckling curve and mixes in a plus change up for good measure. With that type of arsenal, Billy had numerous schools offer him a scholarship over the past four months, as he impressed several Division 1 recruiters , but none more than Seton Hall pitching coach, Phil Cundari. Phil is a Seton Hall alumni himself and currently has eight pitchers in professional baseball. Billy sports a 16-4 win/loss (0.88 ERA) lifetime record with the Terriers. He was 7 and 1 in PBLO play this past spring and already has 36 strike outs this fall. To date, posting these type of numbers in his tenure as a Terrier, Billy will surely continue to impress throughout the balance of this fall, and next spring and summer before he lands on campus in August of 2010. Seton Hall is located on 58 acres in quaint South Orange, NJ. It is only 14 miles from Manhattan and home to 8 schools with over 60 majors. The entire Terriers organization is very proud of all of Billy's accomplishments. He is a well rounded mature young man, an excellent student, and very respectfull of his coaches and team mates. Through countless bullpens and drillwork, Billy has worked very hard to achieve this tremendous opportunity. Congratulations also go out to the Ralston family for supporting their son every step of the way. More about Seton Hall...
