2013 Big Train Roster Announced! College Round-Up; Summer Camp

2013 Big Train Roster Announced!
 
The Bethesda Big Train are proud to announce the most important component of the 2013 season... the roster!

"Heading into the summer, I think we look good," said Big Train Manager Sal Colangelo. "We've got a lot of great guys coming to play for us this summer to make sure that we have a team worthy of the Big Train name heading into our 15th season."
Returning to Bethesda for another summer are some of last season's best players, including Avondre Bollar (San Diego State) - pictured above -,Brock Larson (San Francisco), Bo Logan (Florida Atlantic), Mike Miedzianowski (High Point), Tyler Thomas (Shepherd), Tucker Tobin(George Mason), and Will Resnik (High Point).
Here are a few other tidbits about the roster: 
  • This season's roster is full of youth and includes just three 2014 seniors. There are 16 juniors, 14 sophomores, and one freshman.
  • Florida Atlantic, High Point, and San Francisco all have three players on the 2013 Big Train but San Diego State has the largest contingent with four members.
  • The largest player is Davidson's Danny Mooney who stands 6"5 and weighs 220 pounds. The slightest player is Virginia Tech's Kit Scheetz who stands 5"9 and weighs 160 pounds.
  • The vast majority of the roster hails from three states: California (9 players), Florida (9), and Virginia (7).

Big Train College Round-Up 3/29  
 
In another strong week of performances from Big Train players across the country, it is Hunter Renfroe (BT '11-'12) who sticks out above them all. Over four games at Mississippi State, Renfroe reached base 11 times in 16 attempts. Three of those times he barely graced the basepaths with his presence as he jogged around them for home runs. He also accumulated a double and two singles to go along with his five walks. Once on the basepaths, he continued to show his talents as he swiped two bases as well. His three home runs helped him drive in six runs and come around to score five times.

San Diego State benefited once again from the Big Train pitchers on its roster. This week, Ryan Doran (BT '12), Ethan Miller (BT '12), Bubba Derby (BT '13), and Justin Hepner (BT '13) all chipped in from the mound. They combined for a 2-0 record (and a save) over 12 innings of work, giving up only one earned run on ten hits and two walks while striking out 13 batters. All of them had good weeks that added up to a great contribution for the Aztecs.

Other notable hitting performances: Mitch Morales (BT '12 / Florida Atlantic) - 8/15, 2BB, 3R, 2RBI... Adam Barry (BT '11-'12 / High Point) - 5/11, BB, R, 3RBI, 2 2B... Josh Spano (BT '13 / High Point) - 7/16, 2BB, 4R, RBI, 2B...Brennan Middleton (BT '10-'12 / Tulane) - 6/16, BB, 2HBP, 4R... Justin McCullough (BT '10-'12 / El Camino CC) - 4/10, BB, 2R, RBI... Brandon Gum (BT '12 / George Mason) - 4/13, 2BB, HBP, 4R, 2SB... Drew Farber (BT '10-'11 / UNC-Wilmington) - 6/16, HBP, 7R, 6RBI, 2B... Michael Bass (BT '11-'12 / UNC-Wilmington) - 6/18, BB, HBP, 4R, 3RBI, 2 2B, SB... Justin Roland (BT '09 / UNC-Charlotte) - 6/16, BB, 5R, 2B... Landon Appling (BT '11 / Houston) - 4/6, 3BB, HBP, 3R, 2RBI.
