Rosters


Catchers

Andrew Dempsey C / 1B / Washingtonville, NY / 2025


The 2025 LHH features an easy stroke with some inside-out tendencies to all fields. Throws have shown carry to/through the bag, looking forward to seeing Dempsey again.

 

John Delgadillo C / 3B / The Harvey , NY / 2025


The #1 ranked backstop in the 2025 class features above average arm strength for his age at (78 MPH) to go with a balanced, short swing path (Bat speed up to 73 MPH via Blast Motion)


Corner INF

Evan Kelly 1B / 3B / Roy C. Ketcham , NY / 2025


Last look at Kelly was back in March where he showed a short stroke from an open setuop. Moves well as a corner INF and has arm strength to versatile at either 1B or 3B. 

John Parpis RHP / 3B / St Anthony's , NY / 2025


One of the top ranked 3B also doubles as a RHP (up to 82 MPH in March). Short and simple stroke with easy, repeatable efforts. FB featured an average of 13.4" of horizontal at past events.

 


Middle INF

Tyler Castrataro SS / RHP / Mahopac, NY / 2024


Multi-tooled MIF who ran a 7.13 with an 87 MPH arm across the diamond at multiple events, including the 2022 NYS Games this past summer. The 5-foot-10 RHH has shown the ability to drive the gaps and registered a peak exit of 93 MPH in thee past. Active defender, quick feet, accurate arm.

 

Marc Castillo SS / 2B / Cardinal Hayes , NY / 2024


Our first look at Castillo was only a week ago but it was a great first impression. Ran a 7.19 60 on natural grass with a short stroke that covered the whole plate. active defender with an over-the-top release with accuracy; fun to watch in the middle of the field; 81 MPH arm strength.

 



Outfielders

Michael Schiavone OF / 2B / Roy C. Ketcham, NY / 2023


It's been a little over a year since we've seen the RHH OF from the Hudson Valley. Was a 7.18 runner in the 60 with a short swing path with exagerrated weight transfer. Accuarate arm from the OF; peak exit of 87 MPH. Looking forward to seeing his progress.

Harry Middlemiss OF / 1B / Mamaroneck, NY / 2024


The 6-foot-0 150lb RHH ran a soft turf track 7.30 60 back in July. Works slightly up hill through the zone wit his swing path (peak exit of 87 MPH). Accurate arm from the OF. Lean frame will hold additional strength gains.

 

Ethan Perez OF / 3B / St.Anthony's, NY / 2023


Strong, 6-foot-1 200lb RHH who features a flat, on-plane swing path. Peak exit velo of 92 MPH at this past summer's NYS Games.

 

George Kyriakopoulos 1B / OF / Monsignor McClancy , NY / 2023


One of the top uncommitted players in the 2023 class. Present power and recently put on a show at the Metro Scout Day workout earlier in the week. Will be working out in the OF but will see some time at 1B as well. Imposing 6-foot-6 240lb frame with past exit velos touching 100 MPH.


Pitcher Only

Gabriel Roland RHP / OF / Mamaroneck, NY / 2024


First time look at the RHP from the lower Hudson Valley/Westchester area.

Saul Mata LHP / 1B / All Hallows, NY / 2023


A newcomer to the system who will take to the mound in front our eyes. The NYC resident has been highly recommended and could be an uncommitted prospect to pursue ASAP.

 

William Canale III RHP / SS / Niskayuna , NY / 2023


Strong summer for the RHP from the Capitol District. Projectable 6-foot-1 165lbs has worked 82-84 MPH this past summer. Consistent competitor and one of the top arms available in the 2023 class.

 

Aidan Gelbsman LHP / 1B / Oneonta , NY / 2023


Gelbsman, one of of plenty talented Southpaws, is a hold over from the NYS Games this summer and we're excited to finally get a look at him. Recent Albany Commit.

 

Tim Sparks LHP / 1B / Bethlehem, NY / 2024


6-foot-1 175 build with a FB up to 82 MPH back in August. Short, arm stroke with 1-7 shape to his CB at 68-70 MPH. Intriguing Southpaw to keep an eye on this weekend.
