Gavin Pittore ‘16, Nick Cooney ‘15 and Donnie Cimino ‘15 All Sign Professional Baseball Contracts, Capping Off Outstanding Careers

Three key players in Wesleyan baseball’s fantastic run over the last three years have signed professional baseball contracts this summer. Gavin Pittore ’16 signed a free-agent contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers, Nick Cooney ’15 signed a contract with the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks in the independent American Association, and Donnie Cimino ’15 was drafted in the 37th round by the Chicago Cubs. “This is a thrilling achievement for Wesleyan baseball,” says head coach Mark Woodworth. “For three great young men to achieve at an elite level academically, while simultaneously becoming world-class athletes is so special and unique. We are so proud of all three of them, and thank them for the leadership and commitment to Wesleyan and the baseball team.” All three players were instrumental in helping the Cardinals win the NESCAC championship in both 2014 and 2015, as well as three straight Little Three titles.
