Newark Pilots Add A Pair from Florida International University For 2014

 The Newark Pilots have added two players from currently 19th nationally ranked Florida International University for the 2014 season.  RHP Chris Mourelle and outfielder Louis Silverio will be making the trip to Newark this summer and will look to play large roles.

Hailing from Miami, Mourelle is just a freshman at FIU this year.  But, that has not stopped him from making an impact early on.  So far this season Chris is 3-0 with a 1.05 ERA.  He has appeared in 6 games, starting 3 of those including a complete game shutout.  In 25.2 innings pitched, Mourelle has fanned 14 batters while only walking 4.  Chris was given a boost of confidence this February when he faced some of the toughest competition he'll see all year. Mourelle was the starting pitcher this February when the FIU Panthers took on the  Miami Marlins in a spring training game.  He pitched four innings, giving up 3 runs on 3 hits while striking out 4.  "Chris is going to be an important part of our rotation this year.  He is a young talented arm who will only keep getting better and we are really excited he will be with Newark this year." said Head Coach Mike Armstrong.

Joining Mourelle will be Louis Silverio from Parkland, FL.  Silverio is a junior outfielder who transferred from River State College.  Just like Chris, Louis has gotten off to a hot start in 2014.  He has appeared in 9 games, starting 6 of those.  so far he has a .350 batting average with a homerun and 4 RBI's.  Silverio also got the start vs. the Miami Marlins in February giving him a few at bats against professional pitching.  Coach Armstrong said of Silverio, "Louis is an athletic outfielder with baseball in his blood.  (His father is a former Major Leaguer who played nine years in the KC Royals organization.)  We expect him to come in and be an exciting player for our fans to watch all summer long."

we are getting closer to the 2014 season, so make sure you don't miss out on any of the exciting baseball and family fun at Colburn park this summer by getting your season tickets today!!  You can reserve your seats by calling the Pilots front office at 315-576-6710 or visiting our website at www.newarkpilots.com.  Don't forget our Home Opener on June 13 at 7:05 pm vs. the Amsterdam Mohawks!!  There will be fireworks, giveaways and lots of family fun!!
