ECIC I will once again be talent rich in pitching, with seven pitchers already committed to playing college baseball, led by future Griff Andy Sipowicz(OP) and future Bull Andrew White (UB). Orchard Park and Williamsville North should battle for the Division lead, followed by Lancaster who is led by Canisius commit Joe Prezuiso and Clarence. West Seneca West, Jamestown, and Frontier will round out the Division.  Keep an eye on uncommitted juniors, Jeff Palczewski (OP), Jake Woodrich (OP), Ben Wereski (OP), Peter Battaglia (WN), and Dawson Broad (WSW). Lancaster sophomore LG Castillo has a rare combination of speed and power and is already receiving some serious college interest.

ECIC II looks to be loaded with offense heading into the 2015 season. Top offensive threats Brian Wasilewski (WSE) and Billy Hartford (WS) are both heading to the University of Buffalo Bulls. The Iroquois duo are both heading to the Division II ranks, with Joey Kwasniewski heading to Post University and Matt Sokolski on his way to Nyack. Starpoint catcher, Brett Guay, has committed to Oswego State. Maybe the best stick of them all is Williamsville East Freshman Charles Mack who has recorded exit speeds as high as 94-mph.  Keep an eye on uncommitted juniors Matt Cross (Sta) and Griff DeMayo (Ham) and Austin O'Shei (Ham).

The ace of the Division, Cameron Ringo, RHP, 2015, Hamburg HS, who sits in the mid 80's (up to 88) and has committed to Division I Binghamton University looks to propel the Bulldogs to the ECIC II title. Williamsville South and Iroquois will challenge for the top spot, followed by West Seneca East and Starpoint. Williamsville East, Lake Shore, and Sweet Home will round out the Division.
