Terrier Alumni Off To Great Start
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Monday, March 1, 2010
Three Terrier alumni all got starts for the Canisius Golden Griffins (NCAA D1) in their first three games of the year in Cary NC this past weekend. Lefty Shane Davis went 5.2 innings in the season opener, a 9-5 Griffs victory.

Shane allowed just 3 hits. He was helped out by alumni sluggers Ian Choy and Brian Burton. Brian was 2-4 with an RBI. Ian had a double and a run scored. Right handed alumni pitcher Billy Martin got his first college start in game two versus the University of Illinois at Chicago. Billy went four innings in a wild 16-10 win. Once again Brian Burton (RBI, RS) and Ian Choy (3W, 2B, RS) chipped in offensively for Canisius. Right handed pitcher, Chris Cox closed out the 9th with two strike outs and a ground out. Chris was also a member of the Terriers 2006 championship team. Game three saw crafty lefty Mike Goemans take to the hill. He went four innings and allowed just one earned run in this 20-4 win. Mike was the ace of the Terriers 2006 PBLO and World Series championship team. He lost only two games in his entire Terriers career (17-2). Mike pitched two complete games at the 2006 World Series in Nashville, including the championship game. Pitchers were not the only alumni that got off to great 2010 starts. Brian Simone (University of West Alabama) and Tyler Patzalek (Maine University) are on fire at the plate. Tyler got his freshman career started in Beaumont Texas versus Lamar. He came out of the opening weekend series with a .300 average, including three walks and a .462 on base percentage. The University of West Alabama Tigers have already played 11 games and sport an 8-3 record. Outfielder Brian Simone leads the Tigers with a lofty .413 average. He has 19 hits, 12 runs scored, 2 doubles, a triple and a home run. His slugging percentage is .652. Brian was also a member of the Terriers 2006 World Series championship team that went 6-0 in the tournament. Brian had hits in every game, including three doubles in the final. He was also a member of the Ontario Youth Team that won the 2005 17u Canada Cup National Championship in Medicine Hat, AB. More Terrier alumni will start their college baseball seasons in the coming weeks. Congratulations, and the best of luck to all them.
