Williams’ Marino Commits to Diamondbacks
“He got their attention when he touched 90 mph on the radar gun in the tryout”
– Bill Barrale, head baseball coach at Williams, speaking to the NESCAC
Harry Marino ’12 signed as a free agent with the Arizona Diamondbacks last Friday. Although other teams showed post-draft interest, Marino felt Arizona was the best fit. He humbly credits Williams among contributors to his success:
“I feel incredibly blessed to have the chance to play professional baseball,” added Marino. “It’s something that never would have been possible without the support of many people…most notably my family and my coaches and teammates at Williams. It’s really a lifelong dream come true, and I couldn’t be more appreciative of the opportunity to keep playing the game I love.”
Of course, his no-hitter against Hamilton probably helped.
