NASHVILLE, Tenn. -Nearly three weeks removed from their Atlantic Sun Tournament exit, Lipscomb baseball players are fanning across the United States to continue action in summer baseball.
Head coach Jeff Forehand has announced that 12 of his returning players have been assigned to compete in eight different wooden bat leagues ranging from New England to Louisiana to Wisconsin.
Highlighting the assignments are three Bisons who are playing in the prestigious Cape Cod League. Sophomores Michael Gigliotti, Brady Puckett and Jeffrey Passantino join the top players in the country in what has been considered the premiere amateur baseball league in America since 1885.
The trio are the first Lipscomb players to compete in the CCL since Hunter Brothers in 2013.
Gigliotti has compiled a .333 batting average after collecting hits in all four of the Falmouth Commodores' games. Puckett and Passantino have each gotten a start on the mound and both looked to pickup right where they left off in May.
Puckett, the unanimous ASUN Pitcher of the Year, got the opening day nod where he pitched four innings without factoring into the decision. He allowed three runs while striking out one and walking two.
Passantino got the ball in the Commodores' home opener and did not disappoint. The righty surrendered two earned runs over 6.1 frames of work. He struck out four and walked one while allowing just three hits.
