Justin Anderosky – Chestnut Hill College (Baseball)
Major: 
Business/Marketing
Final list of colleges:  Chestnut Hill, Penn State Abington
Reasons for choosing Chestnut Hill:  “I liked the environment when I went to Chestnut Hill, and the people that surrounded me gave me a great welcome. I thought it was the best fit for me academically and athletically.”
What was the progression that led you to playing baseball at the collegiate level?  “Ever since little league, my goal was to play college baseball. I started thinking about it at the end of my sophomore year when I went to some tournaments. Some of the coaches showed some interest.”
Coach Brian Klumpp says:  “Justin was a two-way player for us last year. He started one game, and he got a few other innings out of the bullpen. He’s got a really live arm, he really works hard, and he has a very nice bat. He hits for contact. He’s a very good team player. He’s one of those guys you see constantly working hard to get better. We’re just looking for Justin to have a bigger role this year. He has a chance to be a two-way player both on the mound and in the field.”

Alex Bendziowicz – Washington College (Baseball)
Major: 
Undecided
Final list of colleges: Washington College, Dickinson College
Reasons for choosing Washington College:  “From the first time I got on campus, I met the coaches and felt like it was a place I would like to spend my next four years.  I had an overnight and spent time with the players, and that really finalized my choice.”
What was the progression that led you to playing baseball at the collegiate level?  “I played for All-Star Baseball Academy since I was 13, and we played in some pretty tough tournaments. I realized I had a chance. I started to get noticed, and it became a reality.”
Coach Brian Klumpp says:  “Alex was a key pitcher for us last year. He ended up with three saves for us in key games. He had a very low ERA. He’s got a good fast ball, and when his curve ball is on, it’s very effective. We’re working on him trying to get ahead in the count. He has a few kinks to work out, but we’re very confident in him going forward. When he did get a chance to hit, he hit the ball very well. This year we’re looking for him to be a two-way player both fielding and on the mound.”

Andrew Dietz – Chestnut Hill College (Baseball)
Major: 
Marketing/Business
Final list of colleges:  Chestnut Hill, Philadelphia University, Post, St. Peter’s
Reasons for choosing Chestnut Hill:  “I chose Chestnut Hill because I thought it was a really nice campus, I really like the city of Philadelphia, and they have a competitive team. I am exited to play there.”
What was the progression that led you to playing baseball at the collegiate level?  “I have always wanted to play in college when I was in little league. I had a rough seventh, eighth and ninth grade. I didn’t make the team, but I kept playing. It really became a reality around junior year when a lot of coaches started reaching out to me.”
Coach Brian Klumpp says:  “Andrew was kind of a surprise player for us last year. He came in and worked hard in the offseason. He started every single game either at third, first or DH. He had the second leading batting average on the team and earned his way to third team All-SOL.
“He was cut seventh and eighth grade, and he didn’t get much of a chance. I saw him and loved the way he worked, and it paid off. He just loves baseball. He had a very good year, and we’re expecting more of him.”

Dan Klepchick – Monmouth University (Baseball)
Major: 
Business
Final list of colleges:  Monmouth, St. Joseph’s University, La Salle
Reasons for choosing Monmouth:  “When I first talked to the coaches, I felt an instant connection. They treat their players like family. I met with the team, and they are really a fun group of guys to hang out with. The campus really impressed me too—just the right size, close to the beach, and between New York and Philly, which gives me access to both cities. Athletically and academically, it seems like a perfect fit.”
What was the progression that led you to competing in baseball at the collegiate level?  “I’ve always wanted to play baseball as long as I can remember, and I always loved to pitch. I played every chance I got, and my goal has always been to play at the college level and possibly beyond. The recruiting process started the fall of my junior year after I was seen by college coaches down in Georgia at the Perfect Game Tournament and continued through my junior baseball season.”
Coach Brian Klumpp says:  “Obviously, Dan was probably a top three pitcher in the league, so we’re expecting nothing less from him this year. He works harder than anybody I know. He’s just going to come back this year and better than last year.
“Dan throws a lot of strikes, he mixes his pitches very well. He just hits spot after spot after spot. The other thing is he gets stronger as the game goes along. Where a lot of kids tire out, Klep gets stronger.”
