The Albany Dutchmen began the unveiling of their 2012 roster by announcing the return of two local stars from last years team. Focusing on the ever-important pitcher-catcher battery, the Dutchmen began by centering around Cohoes-native, catcher Will Remillard, and University of Albany pitcher, Austin Chase.

Remillard was half of the Dutchmen starting catching duo last year after a productive freshman campaign at Temple University. A former Times Union and Troy Record all-area honoree, Remillard batted .321 with 10 doubles, three home runs and twenty-six RBIs for the Owls, while also throwing out 26 runners. He was named the Philadelphia Big 5 Freshman of the Year and continued his success with the Dutchmen. Over the summer, he compiled a .297 batting average with four home runs, twenty-seven RBIs and threw out seven of twelve potential baserunners. Remillard is currently sitting out the season, per NCAA regulations, after transferring to perennial powerhouse Coastal Carolina.

Remillard will be joined again in Albany by last years teammate Austin Chase. Chase, a red-shirt junior at the University of Albany, made a statement early in the 2011 summer as a closer for the Dutchmen. Appearing in six contests, with one start, Chase totaled 15.1 innings, surrendering nine hits and three runs, while striking out fourteen. His 1-0 record, one save and .170 batting average against earned him a PGCBL All-Star nomination. However, his summer was cut short by a shoulder injury and he was forced to spend the fall rehabbing the injury. Now rounding back into form, Chase is near the top of the Danes rotation and will look to earn a spot in the rotation for the Dutchmen as well.
