PITTSBURGH – The University of Pittsburgh Baseball team’s 2013 recruiting class has been ranked as one of the top-40 in the nation according to PerfectGame.org. The Panthers’ class ranks 40th in the nation, just one spot behind defending National Champion Arizona.
“It’s great that our 2013 class has been recognized by Perfect Game,” said head coach Joe Jordano. “The ranking is also impressive because Perfect Game doesn’t even consider junior college players in their rankings and we are really excited about the junior college kids that we are bringing in.”
“Obviously we don’t survive on rankings,” Jordano continued. “However, it is great to be acknowledged by Kendall Rodgers and Perfect Game for the hard work my staff, Coach Lopaze, Coach Oakes and Coach Healy, have done to make this happen. We are very pleased with our class and we will announce a few more in the weeks to come.”
Pitt’s 2013 signees are Mark Armstrong (Clarence Center, N.Y.), Jordan Frabasilio (Chandler, Ariz.), Matt Johnson (Plano, Texas), Sam Mersing (McKees Rocks, Pa.), Keaton Miller (Webster, Texas), Josh Mitchell (Ridgway, Pa.), Josh Morrison (Bristow, Va.), Manny Pazos (Miami, Fla.), Matt Pidich (Aberdeen, N.J.) and TJ Zeuch (Mason, Ohio).
