In the Batting Department

In addition, Rob Fonseca (Northeastern) has found his way into the limelight, serving as one of the spark plugs of the Y-D lineup. Batting primarily out of the DH spot, the Madison, N.J. native has knocked in 13 runs and has shown how good his eye is, drawing 13 walks on the campaign.
On The Mound
