The Dutchmen rounded out their lineup for the 2012 summer by adding a versatile trio of plyers with serious offensive potential. Filling out the catcher spot will be Centenary College junior, Ryan Gasporra, while First Baseman, Sam Few, will join Samford University teammate Brandon Haarer and Third Baseman, Zach Remillard, will team-up with his brother, Will.
After the success enjoyed by Will Remillard, the Dutchmen jumped at the opportunity to pair him with his younger brother, Zach. Currently a Senior at local La Salle High School, Remillard has already signed with Coastal Carolina, where his brother is currently red-shirting after a transfer, and will likely transition from shortstop to third base at the collegiate level. A four-year letter winner, two-year captain, two time Times Union All-Star and MVP of the Diamond National Fall Brawl Tournament, Remillard has a long record of success on the field. However, he's also proven to be just as successful off of it, winning the Sal Forino Award for excellence in baseball and the classroom. A potential MLB draft pick, Remillard seems poised to continue his success in his first taste of collegiate action.
Joining Remillard as a corner infielder will be Samford first baseman, Sam Few. A 6'5" power-hitter from Augusta, Georgia, Few is red-shirting during his freshman season. The right-handed hitter was listed as a High Follow prospect by Perfect Game and has shown tremendous power potential during his first season of collegiate baseball. The decision was made to red-shirt Few during the season when Samford saw how much offensive firepower he could bring in four complete seasons. He looks to start the explosion off in Albany.
Finalizing the lineup will be another potent bat, Centernary College catcher, Ryan Gasporra. A JUCO transfer, the left-handed hitting Gasporra split time between DH and catcher for the Gents, batting .360 with 17 doubles, 9 homeruns and 33 RBIs. His 28 walks, to only 21 strikeouts, also gave him a .480 on-base percentage and helped give him the opportunity to steal 9 bags on the season. A solid receiver with a strong arm, Gasporra looks to provide production for the Dutchmen in all facets of the game.
