The Oneonta Outlaws of the New York Collegiate Baseball League (NYCBL) have announced the signing of two pitchers from the University of Virginia for the 2011 season. Virginia returns 22 letter winners this season from its 51-14 squad which won the ACC Coastal Division and a regional championship in 2010 and recently moved to No. 1 in the Collegiate Baseball and ESPN/USA Today Coaches polls on Monday, marking the second straight season the program has claimed a No. 1 national ranking.
Artie Lewicki, a 6’3 205lbs RHP from Wyckoff, NJ is considered by many to be the best pitcher coming out of the state of New Jersey in 2010. Austin Young is a big 6’4 240lbs RHP from Mechanicsville, VA and was a member of the Richmond Braves National 2010 travel team and was a 2010 Honorable Mention All-State honoree.
Team Co-Owner Keith Rogers said, “We are thrilled to continue our long partnership with the perennial college power University of Virginia (UVA) baseball program. Lewicki and Young are two more 90+ arms that we have signed and whom will both only get better under the guidance and tutelage of UVA Pitching Coach Karl Kuhn, who was honored as the 2010 recipient of Collegiate Baseball's Tom House Teaching Professional of the Year Award. We expect big things for both of these guys this summer as we pursue another NYCBL championship and our first in Oneonta”.
