Keep An Eye On Concato

Watch out for Amity righthander Louis Concato.

He bulked up during the offseason and really improved. He will be one of many dangerous arms in a deep Spartans' pitching staff.

Amity coach Sal Coppola said he likes what he's seen so far from the righthander.

Concato, who throws in the mid 80s, is coming off a very impressive American Legion season.

He's a smart kid, too, as he will pitch at Dartmouth next season.

Kessler on Keniry

Already a strong hitter, Notre Dame-West Haven shortstop Conor Keniry has really progressed as a fielder.

Keniry was no slouch in the field last season, but Green Knights coach Lou Kessler said he has seen improvements in Keniry's glove and foot speed in the field early this preseason.

Notre Dame is likely to be a major factor in the SCC this season and Keniry will certainly be a major role in that.

Also worth noting, Keniry will play baseball at Wake Forest next season and was the Register's All-Area Football MVP as a wide receiver in the fall.
