The Beers prospects heading into the 2017 season looked promising. With new recruits like the young southpaw, Ethan Garry , and Stanford grad, Chris Jenkins.
Ethan Garry 's arm strength and off speed pitches have proven to be affective weapons on the mound, but his stamina and forearm fatigue becomes a growing concern for The Beers. Ethan's first outing was encouraging, but resulted in a loss. In Ethan's next performance he allowed one earned run after pitching five solid innings. Let's hope his arm strength continues to grow, and we see more performances like that one in The Beers future.
Chris Jenkins came in as a recruit from Stanford University. The 6'7" strikeout machine was rated the No. 12 prospect by Baseball America following his summer performance for Holyoke in the New England Collegiate Summer League. Unfortunately, Chris passed on the opportunity to play for The Beers, and is taking the 2017 season to play Tennis.
Though The Beers off season was productive they acquired David Sanchez from the NY Patriots, Anderson Herrad from the NY Roughriders, they still had "The Veteran" Victor Rivera , "The Human Torch" Ryan Smith , "The Side Winder" Pete Darling , "Who Said Pitchers Can Hit" Eric Weber , Brian "You Want Some" Moore , and "Mr Business" Aaron Sarfatti .
