EL Sports.com caught up with Dan Lombardo after a recent ceremony celebrating his commitment to play college ball at Wesleyan.
ELS: Why did you choose Wesleyan?
DL: I picked Wesleyan for a few reasons. First, it is one of the most renowned academic schools in the country (despite it's small size). I believe Forbes has it ranked top 20 in the country. Second, the baseball team is becoming a real powerhouse. They went 31-13 last year and won NESCAC. I've been told by the players/coaches they could beat numerous division 1 teams. Lastly, from alumni and current players, I've been told that you can get a very good job right out of college, which is key.
DL: I think the varsity team will have a very good year. Our pitching is extremely deep and we have a lot of seniors in Nick Shea, Tyler Mart, Jimmy Stone, Tom Chap, and Matt Indomenico. All of which are very good players. Along with a really strong underclassmen core, we are destined for success.
