2017 College Round Up.....Week 4
Nasty winter weather has been playing havoc with the college baseball schedule. Countless games that include several Terrier alumni have been cancelled all over the country. The weather has not been a factor out in California however where CF Toby Handley has caught fire at the plate for the Stony Brook Seawolves. Toby has his average up to .315. ‎The Seawolves were in Malibu on Tuesday and lost a close one to Pepperdine 4-3.

From there they moved on to Santa Barbara for a three game set with UCSB. Toby is in his SR year at Stony Brook. Jake Foden leads his conference in hitting (.591) for the Trojans of Allegany College of Maryland. In a DH last week Jake went 7-7 with two walks, two doubles, a triple, eight RBI and seven runs scored. It is rare that a freshman would lead a pitching rotation in innings pitched at the college level, but Alex Wall of the West Virginia Wesleyan Bobcats does. He is averaging 7.24 strike outs per nine innings and has walked just four batters. Righthander Matt Beaton picked up his first victory of the 2017 campaign in Eastern Michigan's win over Fresno State this past week. Matt was a member of the 2011 Terriers 17U World Series championship team and is now a SR at university. TJ Baker continues to impress on the mound for the St. Bonaventure Bonnies. In seven appearances TJ has an excellent NCAA D1 ERA of 3.55 and opponents are hitting just. 222 off the big righthander. In 18 games Canisius 3B Liam Wilson has an outstanding. 347 average and is second‎ on their roster in runs scored, hits and RBI. This past week he had seven hits and six RBI. The Griffs are 11-7. ‎The Niagara Purple Eagles are now 9-7 after sweeping a pair (3-1 and 3-2) from Bowling Green on Sunday. Terrier alumni fingerprints were all over the game two victory. Catcher Joe Tevlin had the game winning run along with two hits. 2B Geoff Seto had a hit while DH Joel Brophy had a hit and an RBI.
