Rider Adds 5 More

LAWRENCEVILLE—The Rider University baseball team has added five more recruits for the 2014 season, Rider head coach Barry Davis announced.

Mickey Donnelly of Bayville, NJ, Brian Uliana and Jake Tone of Allentown, PA, and Chris Wirth-Kenyon and Nick Kagel of Lawrenceville, NJ, will be members of the Bronc baseball team in the fall.

These five join the six who committed to Rider prior to their senior year of high school, outfielder Giovanni Gussen of Mullica Hill, NJ, infielder Tyler Kaiser of Moorestown, NJ, third baseman Nick Richter of Fox River Grove, Ill., pitcher Ben Deaver of Fallston, Md., pitcher Josh Sharik of Ewing, NJ, and pitcher Mike Diorio of Middletown, NJ. 

“We now have completely filled out our roster with players that will give us the needed depth at several positions,” said Davis, who led Rider to first place in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference in 2013, recording a program-best 34 regular season victories.  “As with every player, they will get the chance to compete for a starting spot right away.”

Donnelly is a junior right-handed pitcher from Central Regional High School who comes to Rider from Ocean County College. At Ocean Donnelly pitched 59 innings in 11 starts last year and struck out 68 with an earned run average of 3.97.  Donnelly had three of Ocean’s 14 wins in 2013. 

Uliana comes to Rider from Freedom High School, where he earned First Team All-Conference and First Team All-Area honors, and will vie for spots in both the infield and outfield at Rider. 

Tone is a 2013 graduate of Liberty High School, where he batted .383 to earn All-Area honors and is expected to play third base or outfield for Rider. 

Wirth-Kenyon transfers to Rider form FDU-Madison, where he pitched 31 innings in 26 appearances last spring and struck out 31 batters. At The Pennington School the right-hander batted .423 as a senior in 2011 and was named to the First Team All-Prep Team after captaining his team to the Patriot League Championship. 

Kagel played first base and outfield for nearby Lawrence High and earned First Team All-Colonial Valley Conference and First Team All-Area honors and was named to the Carpenter Cup team. 

“Opportunity is all anyone ever asks for and this group along with the other six fall signees is going to get it,” said Davis, who recently sent his fourth Bronc in the last five years to the professional ranks. “I am looking forward to seeing this team develop.” 

The fall season will officially begin on September 15.
