TURLIK, REPINE COMMIT TO PETERSBURG GENERALS IN COASTAL PLAIN LEAGUE
Dec. 10, 2013
PETERSBURG, Va. – The University of Maryland Eastern Shore baseball team is pleased to announce that junior right-handed pitcher Devin Repine (Salisbury, Md.) and junior outfielder Greg Turlik (Gaithersburg, Md.) have both committed to play for the Petersburg Generals in the Coastal Plain League this upcoming summer. The two are the first Hawks to be announced for their summer league commitments next summer. Last season, the Hawks sent 14 players to six different summer collegiate baseball leagues.
The Petersburg Generals are among 14 teams in the Coastal Plain League. The league attracts nearly 500,000 fans each summer from Virginia and all throughout the Carolinas. As of last summer, over 1,000 of its former players had been drafted to Major League organizations, 60 of which have player in the Major Leagues. The league has seen players such as Justin Verlander, Ryan Zimmerman and Kevin Youkilis all come through its ranks.
Turlik had an outstanding fall with the Hawks and projects as a middle of the lineup bat. He enters his first season with UMES after he was a 2013 National Junior College Athletic Association All-American at Montgomery College. The left-handed hitter led MC to two berths in the NJCAA World Series during his tenure. He was also a big part of the team’s success in Region XX both years, where he named to the all-tournament team in 2013.
Repine begins his junior season with the Hawks after posting a 1-2 record with an ERA of 5.79 in his first two seasons. He pitched last summer for the Conway Cadets of the Beach Summer Collegiate Baseball League, where he logged 23.2 innings and made 10 appearances. The 6’9 right-handed pitcher led the Hawks with a 4.20 ERA last season and logged four saves as the closer. Repine allowed just three extra base hits the entire season and expects to have an expanded role with UMES this season.
