Jimmy Nocera

Name, Position, Class (College Commitment)
Michael Graziano, OF, 2023 (Georgia Tech)
Reilly Witmer, RHP, 2023 (Florida)
Johnny King, LHP/1B, 2024 (Miami)


Issac Palacios - Palacios transfers into Naples for his senior year and will be a big part in helping the Golden Eagles get back to states.



The Golden Eagles are an experienced team coming off a run at states in 2022. The team is filled with seniors and juniors with plenty of varsity experience. The catalyst in the lineup will be senior outfielder Michael Graziano, a Georgia Tech recruit, who is coming off a big junior season last spring. On the pitching side, Naples has a dangerous 1-2 punch in senior RHP Reilly Witmer (Florida) and junior LHP Johnny King (Miami). Naples has what it takes to make a big run again in 2023.
