SeBaseball.com has posted a recent article on the Boston College Baseball program. They expect BC to compete for a spot in the ACC Tournament this upcoming season and possibly get a bid to the NCAA Tournament. The full article available here.
The Boston College Baseball team and Head Coach Mikio Aoki have released their 2007 baseball schedule. There is really no surprises on the schedule besides a little trip down to Vanderbilt to play Lipscomb, Belmont, and the host school in Vandy. I would expect David Price to pitch against Boston College in this tourney so it should be pretty interesting to see how the Eagles do down there.
You can read the full schedule here.
The 2007 Signing period has started for College Baseball. The Boston College Eagles have signed 13 players including nine student-athletes from Massachusetts or Connecticut. This is a sign that Aoki will be focusing on dominating the recruiting trail with New England kids attending BC. We have a bunch of press releases on the rest of the country.
Mikio Aoki, the new head coach of baseball at Boston College has changed the recruiting strategy of the Eagles. He just signed St. John’s (Shrewsbury MA) shortstop Garrett Smith who will join the Eagles in the fall of 2007. Smith was recruited by the University of Maryland and Notre Dame but decided to join the Eagles because they are a local school. Full article linked here.
Mikio who is a resident of Plymouth Mass has become very active in the local recruiting scene by picking up a bunch of players in the area. There was a story this summer of him signing a player from Framingham Legion in July. The strategy of the Eagles is starting to look like they are going to sign all the good talent in the northeast and show those Southern schools that Boston kids can play some hardball.
Boston College has officially announced that they will be building a new baseball facility in the near future on the Brighton campus. This is a huge move for the Boston College Baseball program as they continue to improve and become a force in the ACC in the near future. I am looking forward to the days when I go to games at BC and see 4,000 people cheering on the Eagles.
New Baseball Stadium included in Master Campus Plan
Kevin Boggan and Terry Doyle (both of Boston College) came through in the clutch to win games 2 and 3 for the Yarmouth Dennis Red Sox which clinched the CCBL championship for the second time in the last three seasons. Boggan pitched 7.1 innings giving up only one earned run including striking out six batters. By winning this game, He forced a deciding third game on Sunday which was started by his YD and Boston College teammate Terry Doyle who was masterful on Sunday. He pitched six innings of two-hit baseball and only gave up a homerun to Bradley Suttle (Texas).
This should bode well for the Boston College pitching staff next season. They return the Co-Pitcher in the Cape Cod League in Terry Doyle, a former Draft pick in Adam Crabtree (15th round in 2004 for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim), Dan Houston who pitched extremely well in the NECBL with a 1.90 ERA, and Kevin Boggan will be back in a closer or even a starter role for the Eagles under new head coach Mikio Aoki.
Ryne Reynoso, a seldom used pitcher and a starting outfielder for the Eagles decided to turn pro and sign with the Atlanta Braves. The Braves will pay him a $100,000 as a signing bonus and will pay for his senior year at Boston College also. Reynoso will be making the minimum $1,100 a month.

Yarmouth Dennis outlasted the Brewster Whitecaps by the score of 6-5. Yarmouth Dennis was led by a solid but not outstanding pitching performance from Bryan Henry. He gave up 4 runs in his seven innings of work. Barry Enright gave Brewster a poor start in the game by giving up 5 runs in his 4 innings of work. Cole DeVries gave up only one run in the last four innings for Brewster. Brad Emaus led the offense for YD by going 2-2 with 2 RBI’s. Evan McArthur and Buster Posey both went 2-4 with an RBI.
Yarmouth-Dennis will host the Wareham Gatemen in the Championship series starting Friday afternoon at 3:00 pm.
Terry Doyle was named Pitcher of the Week in the Cape Cod League this week. He had a no-hitter and had 16 strikeouts in his two starts combined. This is a serious boost to Mr. Doyle’s accomplishments in this great summer season he is having. We can hope that he does this type of performance next season when the Eagles make a run for a Tourney berth in the NCAA Tournament.
Jared McGuire was struck in the head by a pitch on Friday night but was back in the lineup on Sunday after missing one game.
Terry Doyle threw a no hitter last night as his Yarmouth-Dennis Red Sox knocked off the Chatham A’s 1-0. Doyle threw 129 pitches while striking out twelve batters. He had one walk which kept him from a perfect game. This is a good sign for the Boston College ace heading into next season in which he will be a top MLB prospect. Article can be read here.
