Steffan's Summer Plans

From the Centre Daily Times, 5/3/05:

Former State College slugger and current Harvard freshman Steffan Wilson will remain in New England this summer to play for the Torrington (Conn.) Twisters of the New England Collegiate Baseball League.

The NECBL, founded in 1993, is a 12-team summer league stocked mainly with Division I players looking to stay sharp or catch the eye of pro scouts. Teams play a 42-game schedule from June-August.

Wilson is listed on the Twisters' roster as a third baseman, outfielder and pitcher. Pitcher Bobby Lasko, a native of Athens, Pa., currently playing at James Madison, will join him on the Twisters.

Wilson, State College's career leader in home runs and runs batted in, currently leads Harvard in several offensive categories, including batting average (.368), hits (49), runs scored (34) and total bases (78).

Matt Brunnig pitched for the Torrington Twisters in the summer of 2003. I think there are other Harvard baseball alums who played for the Twisters, but not sure who.
