Di Sano named preseason all-American
Catcher Dominic Di Sano ’14 has been named to the 2014 D3baseball.com preseason all-America team.
Di Sano combines his defensive duties and handling of the pitching staff with a productive offensive game. Last season, he ranked eighth in the league in RBI (34) while batting .354 with 13 doubles, one triple, and three home runs. Di Sano’s .538 slugging percentage led the Seahawks in 2013.
“It’s a great honor for Dom to be recognized as one of the elite catchers in the country heading into his senior season,” said head coach Eric Cirella. “He certainly established himself as one of the premier catchers in the northeast last spring, especially defensively. He controls the pitching staff and makes the whole team better. I think Dom will be eager to get back to work so he can prove his worth and justify his pick as a preseason All American. I’m very proud of him; he has come a long way.”
Salve Regina opens its season in Fort Myers, Fla., on March 8 with a doubleheader against Mitchell College. Di Sano and his teammates return to New England to play at Salem State University March 18 before hosting their first game at Reynolds Field March 19 against Worcester Polytechnic Institute.
