Sixteen Sun Devil baseball student-athletes took their talents to various summer baseball leagues across the country, including the Cape Cod League, Northwoods League and the New England Collegiate Baseball League.
Since the midway point of the summer season recently passed, let’s hand out some grades and analysis on how the 2013-14 Sun Devils are doing.
WESTERN MAJOR BASEBALL LEAGUE
FIRST BASEMAN TONY DIMARTINO – Okotoks Dawgs: C
DiMartino is not having the best summer season compared to other Sun Devils. He has just one hit, though that one hit was a home run. He finished the first half with three RBIs and three runs, but keep in mind he only played in five games.
The Danville, California native is no longer on the active roster so he didn’t have the opportunities to make up for his statistics.
NORTHWOODS BASEBALL LEAGUE
FIRST BASEMAN ROURIC BRIDGEWATER – Battle Creek Bombers: B+
The rising junior is making a case for a starting spot in the infield after an impressive first half of the summer season. Bridgewater is top five on the team in multiple categories, including games (31), batting average (.280), hits (33), doubles (9), triples (2), and RBIs (12).
The Ponoma, California native battled against DiNatale and Graybill for time at first base last season. He would be more in the Northwoods spotlight if it weren’t for his team being eight games below .500.
