Wall pitcher Mike Nocchi has committed to Babson College, via Social Media. The rising senior pitcher had made it known early Thursday evening, that he had finally made the right choice as to where he will continue his career.
When asked about his decision to attend Babson he replied ” I knew that I wanted to get the best education possible. ” Babson offers one of the best business programs in the country. He credits the coaches and staff as well for making his decision easy.
As a pitcher , Nocchi knows that keeping his arm healthy will be the most challenging part of collegiate baseball. ” The season is a lot longer in college” Nocchi said. He notes that keeping his body healthy will certainly be a challenge for that extensive period. ” I am looking forward to the challenge”, he added. He addressed the fact that although his competition is harder, he find this to be the best part of that challenge.
With the commitment now beyond him, I asked how this will affect the rest of his tenor with Wall baseball. ” Nothing changes in regard to what our focus is “, Mike said. He feels that winning 20 games is a goal that will allow them to build up stamina and confidence to win a championship.
He knows that he will be a big part of the pitching staff this year. With the rest of the guys in this staff, Nocchi said, ” I just have to go out there and prove I am worth it”. He knows he will be a leader for the young guys coming up and can play his senior year with much confidence as a leader.
