Coach Corbin Quote: Stephen had a great summer in the NECBL and has put himself in position to help our team. He is a very reliable young man in every facet of his life. He swings the bat with skill and strength while commanding the strike zone. He also gives us depth and versatility because of his ability to play the outfield and catch. I really like his toughness.
