BLASDELL, N.Y. (WIVB) - Looking back, last summer's Academy Stars travel baseball team may have been the best collection of high school baseball talent Western New York has ever seen.
Out of the 12 players on the roster, ten will suit up in college next year - including a staggering nine Division I signees.
"Yeah, around here having eight Division I players, even just ten players go to college in the Buffalo area, doesn't happen very often," said Head Coach Justin Santonocito. "We made a name for ourselves."
Among those eight future D-I players is Amherst catcher Jonah Heim, who signed with Michigan State. However, there is also a very good chance he could be drafted early in June's MLB Amateur Draft.
