Aggie Pitcher Named a Top Prospect —By Laura Nelson on 09/07/2012 Goodwell, Okla.—The Aggie baseball team welcomes Sean Williams back to campus as he returns for his senior year after being named a top major league prospect in the New York Collegiate Baseball League (NYCBL).
This summer, the right-handed pitcher from Wilmington, Del. pitched 52.2 innings, striking out 66 batters and posting a 2.73 earned run average as a member of the Syracuse Salt Cats. Perfectgame.org released its summer top collegiate prospects, and Williams was chosen no. 15 out of the 20-team NYCBL. He was also selected to the All-Star team and the All-NYCBL first team. He led the league in strikeouts and recorded double digit strikeouts in three appearances on the mound.
After school is out in May, many collegiate baseball players join summer leagues to continue honing their skills and Williams is one of the few recognized from around the U.S. as a potential professional player.
