Rider Signs Four

LAWRENCEVILLE, NJ-The Rider University baseball team has added four to its 2013 roster.  "As with every class that signs early, there are high expectations," head coach Barry Davis announced.  "This group is no different."

James Locklear of Hamilton, NJ, a senior at Steinert High School, Brian Donnelly of Churchville, PA, a senior at Council Rock South, Lee Lipinski of Glen Arm, MD, a senior at Calvert Hall and Vincenzo Aiello of Staten Island, NY, a senior at Tottenville High School, have signed national letters of intent to further their education and baseball careers at Rider.

"There are two common denominators with this class," Davis said.  "They all have size and each plays in a quality high school program that not only wins games, but wins championships.  It is very important to add players to your program that are accustomed to winning.  We did that."

Locklear led the Colonial Valley Conference with a .522 batting average as a junior on the 2011 Steinert team, with 35 hits for the 23-3 CVC Champions.  Locklear was the CVC Player of the Year and a Third Team All-State selection.

Donnelly batted .442 as an All-League centerfielder his junior season and pitched for the fifth ranked team in Pennsylvania. He also plays football at Council Rock South. He earned All-League honors as the quarterback on squad that is currently 12-1 and in the PA State quarterfinals.

"The four signed include outfielders James Locklear and Brian Donnelly," Davis said. "They will bring athleticism to our outfield.  Both are two sport stars in high school and I believe once they make a full commitment to baseball, the ceiling is high. "

Lipinski is a catcher-first baseman and Aiello was a closer. "He'll be their ace this year," Davis said.

Aiello owned a record of 4-0 and a 1.10 earned run average last season as a junior with 10 saves, compiling 68 strikeouts in 55 innings.

Lipinski batted .328 as a junior with 19 hits and 15 RBI for Calvert Hall, traditionally one of the top programs in the state of Maryland.

"Lee Lipinski will add much needed depth at catcher and at the corner infield," Davis said. "He is versatile, giving us more than one option.  Vincenzo Aiello is a hard throwing right-handed pitcher, and will be a great addition to our pitching staff."
