Player Signings

With the upcoming summer season fast approaching the Snappers have been hitting the recruiting trail with full force this fall.  The team was officially announced as an acting member in the South Florida Collegiate League during the offseason this past October.  It wasn’t long after that announcement when the front office began pursuing some of the players they were targeting.  “ We are very pleased with where the roster is at going into the spring and I’m really looking forward to working with the guys we have on board for this summer,” says Snappers head ball coach Ross Smith.  He would go on to say “I plan on being a big part of the playoff conversation when July rolls around.”

 

A few position players to look out for during the 2016 summer season are Long Island University freshman outfielders Dave Brehm and Joe Piscitelli.  These two guys are both stud athletes who are looking to be impact players at LIU during their first season with the program.  The Snappers will look to their corner infielders for some big time pop in the middle of the lineup.  Starting with first baseman Robert Moffatt from San Jose California, who is a 6’2/225 sophomore at West Valley CC in California.  Across the diamond opposite of him playing third base will be Andre Jackson.  Jackson is a 6’2/190 sophomore from Massapequa, NY who plays at St Thomas Aquinas College.

 

The Snappers look to have a solid foundation to lean on in their starting pitching rotation with both Corey Martinez and Kyle Cliff.  Martinez, a 6’2/160 RHP from William Patterson University, is very familiar with the South Florida Collegiate League as he was named to the 2015 SFCBL All-Star game last summer.  The game was played at Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter Fla. where Martinez sat 87-89 mph and touched 91 mph giving up zero earned runs in the game.  Cliff, a 6’3/180 LHP from UNC-Greensboro, will be a new comer to the South Florida Collegiate League but appears to be ready for the challenging hitters he will face.  Cliff pitched for the Carolina Vipers last summer in the Southern Collegiate League going 3-0 with a 2.73 era and 20 strikeouts in only 29.2 innings of work.

 

Amidst building a new team website, developing a new logo and locking down their home field the Snappers front office has what appears to be a strong foundation of a competitive roster.  Already with all of their position players and eleven pitchers signed for the 2016 season they’re looking to make some serious noise in the SFCBL right away.  “ I am really excited about the group of guys we have coming to West Boca this summer but I’m also looking forward to finding those last few pieces this spring as well,” said the Snappers team President Ryan Lamb.
