“We are at the point here at Brockport where we have good players graduate from the program each year and need to fill those spots the following year. Our past program success and hard work on the recruiting trail by the entire coaching staff allows us to continue to restock the roster each year with talented players. There is also an opportunity for players to work hard and move up to the starting lineup each year.” – Justin Beach, Head Coach
Brockport Golden Eagles
The College at Brockport Baseball team will look to build on the recent streak of success. The Golden Eagles won more than 20 games in a season for the 11th consecutive season in 2013 and defeated the No. 1 ranked team in the country three times. Brockport defeated No. 1 Kean to start the season and then downed top-ranked Cortland in two out of three meetings near the start of conference play. Brockport enters the 2014 season with a rebuilt pitching staff after the graduation of its top two starters in 2013.
Head Coach Justin Beach will look to veterans Justin McCarthy (school record 10 saves in 2012) and Rob Stankiewicz (school record holder for appearances) to move into roles as starters joining senior Matthew Coleman and sophomore Tyler Clifford as well as a solid group of transfers. Offensively, Brockport graduated three starters on the infield at catcher, shortstop and first base but returns the entire outfield. The team will make three early-season trips with a weekend to New Jersey (to face Kean), a weekend trip to Long Island and a 10-day Spring Training trip to Florida. The challenging 2014 schedule also features games against the tough SUNYAC conference and non-league games against St. John Fisher, Ithaca and Stevens.

Player Spotlight

Justin McCarthy was an All-America selection as a sophomore closer with 10 saves and was a pre-season All-America selection in 2013. He moves to the starting rotation as a senior this year to solidify the staff.
