The NEAA 21u Dodgers have several players doing big things for their college teams. Two lifelong North End men, who have played in the NEAA baseball program since age 8, are getting ready to wrap up their seasons and return to the Dodgers for summer baseball. Vincent Lopriore is starring at Curry College as a top of the rotation starter for the Colonels. Vin has pitched at an extremely high level all year and was also conference pitcher of the week during the season for a one-hit gem he threw. Vin has been a staple in the Dodger’s rotation since he was 13 year’s old and has played a major role in leading the Dodger’s to championships in the RBI league, Lou Tompkins All-Star League and the base Hitz league. Vin will be the number one pitcher in the Dodger’s stable this summer.
Mike Martignetti has been the starting first baseman for the Fitchburg Falcons all season. With his glove and his bat Mike has played a big role in helping Fitchburg to qualify for their conference tournament. Mike has been a lynchpin in the Dodger’s line-up since turning 13 and is a middle of the order power bat and the defensive signal caller for the 3 time Dodger champions. Mike is wrapping up his junior year at Fitchburg and will be returning to the Dodgers for one more summer stint. He and Vin are expected to be Dodger captains this year and lead the team on their quest for another championship.
