Remillard Brothers Reunite With Dutchmen

The Albany Dutchmen baseball team features some of the most talented collegiate players from all over the country. Players come together for the summer and are usually completely unfamiliar with each other. That is not the case for two members of the team, as Will and Zach Remillard get the rare chance to play at such a high level as brothers on the same team.

When the season starts on June 6th, former LaSalle, and current Coastal Carolina, catcher Will Remillard will share the field with his younger brother Zach for the first time in two years. 

During his time at LaSalle, the older Remillard racked up honors, being named Times Union and Troy Record first team all-area and Collegiate Baseball Magazine’s New York State High School Player of the Year after his senior season. After graduating in 2010, Will enrolled at Temple University and quickly made a name for himself, hitting .321 with ten doubles, three homeruns and 26 RBIs his first year. It was enough to get him named Big 5 Rookie of the Year.

Will followed up his solid freshman campaign by returning home to Cohoes, NY last summer to suit up for the Albany Dutchmen. He didn’t miss a beat. He again paced his team, this time hitting .297 with four home runs, 24 RBIs, six stolen bases, and 58% of runners thrown out stealing. The mass amount of momentum gained in 2010 prompted him to transfer to Coastal Carolina, a perennial Division 1 powerhouse.

However, despite the big shoes, younger brother Zach has done his best to keep up. Also a Times Union and Troy Record All-Area selection after his junior campaign, Zach had a strong season for LaSalle in 2012, attracting interest from Major League Baseball, and having his pick of top collegiate programs to attend in the fall. He chose Coastal Carolina.

Since Will was forced to red-shirt this season due to NCAA transfer requirements, the Remillard’s will have three years to play together in South Carolina. But before the brothers begin their charge on the collegiate baseball world, they’ll get to lace up their cleats together in their hometown one more time.

When they pull on their Dutchmen home whites on June 6th and stride out onto Belizzi Field to take on the Elmira Pioneers, it might be the beginning of a very long summer for opposing teams in the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League.

Last year more than 1,250 professional players had either worn the uniform of a PGCBL team or participated in a Perfect Game USA event.
