♦ Celebrating East Meadow's Sean Hogan - East Coast Conference Baseball Player of the Year

 

Congratulations Sean, East Meadow is super proud of you!!

 

Hogan, Mack, and Giblin Claim ECC Baseball All-Conference Top Honors
Posted: May 13, 2021
 
 
West Babylon, N.Y. – The East Coast Conference announced its Baseball All-Conference awards on Thursday morning. Molloy's Sean Hogan (East Meadow, N.Y.) was named the league's Player of the Year, while Alex Mack (Cornwall, N.Y.) of St. Thomas Aquinas took home Pitcher of the Year accolades. The top honors are rounded out with Mercy's Nolan Giblin (Syracuse, N.Y.) earning the Rookie of the Year honor and Molloy head coach Joe Fucarino being selected by his peers as the conference's Coach of the Year.
Hogan followed through on his selection as the ECC Preseason Player of the Year by claiming the postseason award, as well. The graduate student was the top hitter in the ECC during the regular season, leading the league with a .402 batting average. Hogan also topped the ECC with 41 hits and ranked among the top-10 in the loop with eight doubles, three triples, 30 runs batted in, 55 total bases, a .480 on-base percentage, and a .539 slugging percentage. In addition, Hogan constantly puts pressure on opposing defenses by ranking as the toughest player to strike out in all of Division II. He's gone down on strikes just three times in 102 at-bats, good for a ratio of one every 34 at-bats.
Joining Hogan and Mack as All-Conference First Team selections are Thomas Brady (C, Molloy), Anthony Murphy (1B, Mercy), Andrew Jemison (3B, St. Thomas Aquinas), Miguel Ortiz-Sanchez (SS, Mercy), Elias Beltre (OF, Lincoln), Matt Overton (OF, Molloy), James Versage (OF, St. Thomas Aquinas), Thomas Martens (DH, Staten Island), Reed Hoskins (UTL, Queens), Charlie Cucchiara (SP, Molloy), Justin Nyarady (SP, Bridgeport), Timothy Panetta (SP, Molloy), and James Reilly (RP, St. Thomas Aquinas)

Go Fillies!!!!
