Four Additions to 2021 Turks Roster

We are proud to introduce four more players to play for the 2021 Harrisonburg Turks at JMU Veterans Memorial Park.

Travis Reifsnider returns for his second season (2019) with the Turks. He now becomes the fourth Duke to join this year’s Turks, alongside college teammates Liam McDonnell, Bryce Safferwich, and Conor Hartigan. A native of Richmond, Virginia, Reifsnider was a standout athlete at Collegiate School, being named Second Team All-State in 2017 while also starring on the football team as a wide receiver and defensive back. The 6’5 utility player has improved his numbers in each of his three seasons at James Madison, as he currently sports a .300 batting average and .975 OPS with 13 RBI in 18 games. Reifsnider comes from an athletic family, as his father John played football at Toledo, his sister Carter played lacrosse at JMU, and his brother Jack played football at Christopher Newport.

Jackson Dennies currently a freshman at Notre Dame, the 6’4 righthander comes from River Ridge, Louisiana, a suburb of New Orleans. He had a standout career at Archbishop Rummel High School, where he led the Super Ants to the state championship in 2019. As a junior, Dennies pitched to the tune of a 9-1 record with a 1.60 ERA and two saves, while also splitting time as a catcher. He was a four-year varsity letter winner for Archbishop Rummel and a captain on the 2020 team. His mother, Sherri, played softball at nearby Nicholls State.

 

A native of Melbourne, Florida, Rodriguez pitches for Division II Florida Tech where he is the most frequently used relief pitcher, having made 11 appearances and tossed 16.1 innings of work. Rodriguez transferred to Florida Tech after spending two years at Eastern Florida State College where, in 2019, he recorded a stellar 1.84 ERA in 19 relief outings. He was a three-year letter winner at Melbourne High School.

 

 

 

Liam Dabagian a redshirt freshman at Elon, will be joining Ben Sieracki as fellow Phoenix pitchers on the 2021 Turks roster.
