LWA continues baseball success
(Page 2 of 2)

Freshman Jake Ellowitz provides steady defense at shortstop and helps set the table on offense for the Tigers in the No. 2 spot.

Where Schulman uses his speed to track down flies in the outfield depends on LWA’s starting pitcher. Senior standout Jakob Cayne, a five-year veteran of the program, plays center on non-pitching days. Cayne is the ace of the staff with five wins, a 3.27 ERA and 34 strikeouts in 33 innings. He’s also driven in 19 runs. “Jakob’s always been a really good player,” Cohn said. 

Wesley Gladstein pitches and plays right field. The 6-foot-3 sophomore has three wins on the mound and relies on a fastball with late movement. Junior Michael Levitt has also worked some innings in addition to playing the outfield and several infield spots. Senior Bryan Ruiz-Diaz is a three-year starter in left, senior Chris Liebenberg starts at second base, and senior Cody Schwab splits first with junior Matt Irizarry. The latter also works behind the plate with freshman Nathan Cupidore. Another freshman, Jordyn Berry, has shared third with Levitt.

“Our goal is to win out,” Cohn said.
