Former Washington Academy star looking forward to USM baseball career
... Flaherty is looking forward to having him on the team and noted that two of his top three starting pitchers, Tyler Leavitt and Zack Bean, are coming off offseason arm surgery.
“[At this level], you don’t find many freshman pitchers, eligibility-wise, who are 6-foot-4 and can throw in the mid- to upper-80s,” said Flaherty. “I like his size, I like the way he throws the ball, and he’s fairly athletic. He’s a bright kid, so I’m sure he’s someone we can work with.
‘We’ll throw him out there as a starter on our Florida trip, and we will see what we can do. We’ll let him build up,” said Flaherty, who has benefitted from a number of UMaine transfers over the years.
UMaine transfer Sam Stauble of Harrison was an all-conference and all-New England first baseman at USM last spring
