Crimson Stacked, Hyphenated for 2006

Word of a recruiting development came by way of the little birdies in the home stands today and was confirmed later on. There's another power hitter on the way to Cambridge: Thomas Stack-Babich has transferred successfully from Wake Forest, and could wind up right in the heart of the Harvard order next spring.

Here was the scouting report on Stack-Babich prior to the 2004 Perfect Game World Showcase, one of the major scouting events:

Xaverian HS
Scituate, MA
Signed Wake Forest

Stack-Babich has your classic right field tools. He’s strong and angular at 6-3, 215 lb and generates very good bat speed and leverage on his swing. He’s going to hit some long home runs at the next level. Stack-Babich also had big league average arm strength from the outfield and threw 85 mph off the mound.

Stack-Babich's move, perhaps partially precipitated by the resignation/retirement of the man who recruited him to the Demon Deacons, is Harvard's gain. Meanwhile, between Stack-Babich and this year's freshmen recruits, someone down south must be getting at least a little annoyed by all this.
