Sorgie Named NECBL Pitcher Of The Week


NEWTOWN, Pa. -- University at Albany baseball player Cameron Sorgie has been named the New England Collegiate Baseball League’s Pitcher of the Week, announced by the league office Monday.

Sorgie, a right-handed pitcher from Shirley, N.Y., threw six shutout innings for the Vermont Mountaineers, facing the minimum number of batters. Despite getting a no decision in the June 16th start, Sorgie yielded just one hit, fanned seven, and did not issue a single walk.

In two starts this season, Sorgie owns a 1-0 record and 0.81 ERA, striking out 11 in 11 innings of work.

Sorgie and fellow UAlbany teammate Josh Nethaway, are currently in first place in the Western Division standings, helping the Mountaineers to a 9-3 record.

The New England Collegiate Baseball League is a wooden bat college summer league that fields teams in all six New England states plus New York. Partially funded by Major League Baseball, the NECBL started play in 1994 and has sent over 90 alumni to the Major Leagues.
