Gerstenmaier Part of Historic Recruiting Class at Virginia

Gerstenmaier

NEWARK, N.Y. – The University of Virginia’s 2014-15 recruiting class, which includes 2014 Newark Pilots middle infielder Jack Gerstenmaier, was ranked the second-best recruiting class in the nation according to Baseball America.

Gerstenmaier suited up for the Pilots in 2014 after committing to the Cavaliers while at Douglas S. Freeman High School in Richmond, Va. He was ranked the No. 23 prospect in the state of Virginia by Baseball America prior to the 2014 MLB First-Year Player Draft in June, calling him a “heady middle infielder with a contact-oriented bat who will likely move to second base in the pros.” Perfect Game USA named him to its Atlantic Region All-High School Senior First Team.

While in Newark, Gerstenmaier earned Second-Team All-Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League (PGCBL) honors and was the starting second baseman for the West Division in the All-Star Game. He started 29 of 30 games played, batting .337 with 33 hits, six doubles and one home run. He scored 29 runs and drove in 15 more, stole eight bases and had more walks (16) than strikeouts (15). He helped the Pilots advance to the PGCBL Championship Series for the first time since 2011.

Virginia’s No. 2 class ranking is the highest in school history and trails only Louisiana State. The class of 13 incoming freshmen also includes Rochester, N.Y., native Ernie Clement. Clement batted .322 in 19 games for the Albany Dutchmen. Last season, the Cavaliers advanced to the NCAA Division I College World Series Finals for the first time in program history, losing in three games to Vanderbilt.

The Newark Pilots begin their fifth season of play at Colburn Park in June of 2015.
