Esposito stepping up for Amity
A young and inexperienced rotation has forced the right-handed Esposito to see more innings on the mound. He has thrived so far, going 1-0 with two saves. He missed a start Monday against Branford because of a pulled hamstring. Until the sophomores come along, Esposito’s presence will be critical.
Keep in mind he started in the state tournament as a sophomore. He took on a lesser role last season with the emergence of Amity’s dynamic pitching the duo of Louis Concato and Joe Ciancola. Both are Division I pitchers now.
Esposito will play at Marshall next season and will likely pitch there. Amity coach Sal Coppola said he throws in the mid to upper 80s and a tremendous curve ball.
