Kats Win NYCBL Weekly Honors

Wednesday, June 13, 2012

The New York Collegiate Baseball League honored two Erie Community College baseball players this past week. The NYCBL, founded in 1978, is a summer wood bat development league for professional baseball.

Joe Pantano (Fredonia, N.Y./St. Francis) was named the NYCBL's hitter of the week. Pantano, who played shortstop for the 2011 and 2012 Kats, collected a league-leading 16 hits for the Olean Oilers. He had six multi-hit games including a 4-for-5 performance when the Oilers defeated the then-first-place Hornell Dodgers. In 29 at bats Pantano had four extra-base hits to go with four walks. He is also tied for the league lead with eight runs scored.

Brandon Nemeti (Lancaster, N.Y./Lancaster) was selected the league's pitcher of the week. Nemeti, who pitched for ECC the past seasons, went 2-0 in his first two starts for Olean. The right-handed Nemeti scattered four hits over seven-plus innings as Olean opened the season with a win over the Geneva Twins. He followed that with six-plus innings of work in a victory at Niagara Falls. He has struck out eight while allowing three earned runs for a 1.93 earned-run average.
