Bethune-Cookman left hand pitcher Donte Lindsay will return to the Turks this season. After arriving in a mid-season move last season from the Charlestown Cannons, the versatile Lindsay was 3-0 with a tidy 1.35 ERA.
Donte, is a 6′ 3″ tall, 185 lb Junior, and was a two-sport star at JFK High School in Cleveland, OH. The Turks have had several pitchers from Cookman, most notably, Ali Simpson and current AA hurler Rayan Gonzalez.
So far this season, Lindsay is 4-3 with a 5.80 ERA in 15 games (9 starts), 45 innings. He and his Wildcat teammates are coming on strong lately as they try to capture yet another MEAC (Mid-eastern Athletic Conference) Tournament and the NCAA D1 bid that comes with it. Coach Jason Beverlin is no stranger to winning baseball.
The Turks are thrilled to welcome Donte back to the flock for another solid season.
LaSalle Sophomore right hand pitcher Greg Paprocki will be on Turks pitching staff in 2016. A Holland, PA native, Greg is 6′, 175 lb and had an up and down season for Coach Mike Lake’s Explorers. In 29.2 innings (16 appearances) Paprocki was 1-2 with a 8.80 ERA.
While he has struggled so far in his collegiate career, Greg was 2nd team all-state at Council Rock South HS including a 7-1, 0.83 ERA as a Senior team MVP. He was also a 2-year starting QB on the football team.
Greg is a live-armed hurler with two seasons of eligibility remaining, Summer innings are very valuable to developing players and many have found their stride in the Turks uniform. Other Explorers who have played well for the Turks include pitchers Adam Cherry and Shawn O’Neill and OF Justin Korenblatt.
Welcome Greg! Have a great summer.
