COLCHESTER, Vt. - Saint Michael's College baseball standouts Collin Fishman (Bethesda, Md./Our Lady of Good Counsel) and Rob McCarty (Canton, Mass./Canton) both received a tryout on Monday with the prestigious Cape Cod League in Massachusetts. Both players completed their sophomore year with Saint Michael's earlier this spring.
Neither player was signed by a Cape Cod League team for the summer, but Fishman was picked up later on Monday by the Southern Maryland Nationals of the Cal Ripken Senior League.
"It was a great opportunity for Collin and Rob to be represented at the tryout, and a proud moment for the Saint Michael's baseball program," said Paul Morgan, who completed his third season as head coach of the Purple Knights earlier this month. "Collin will have a chance to compete in a league similar to the New England Collegiate Baseball League, while Rob will hopefully have a similar opportunity in the coming weeks. Both men represent the Saint Michael's baseball program extremely well."
Fishman had a strong season in 2011 for the Purple Knights, both on the mound and at the plate. He led the squad with seven games started on the mound, 40.2 innings pitched and a .260 opponents batting average, and was tops among the team's starting pitchers with a 3.98 earned run average. Offensively, he was third on the team with eight runs batted in, and tied for third with four doubles.
McCarty pitched in a team-best 13 games in relief, and tied his own single-season program record with three saves. His six career saves are tied for the most in program history, and he became the first person in program history to save two games in one day when he did so in Florida on March 14.
