About Me

For Love of the game

Ever since I was a very young child I had a love of the game of baseball. I recall when my mom and dad bought me my first real baseball bat I could not wait to get to a real field and try it out. I played many other sports while growing up and enjoyed them all, but nothing made me feel like I did while playing baseball; making that amazing play in the field, a game winning hit, the battle between the pitcher and hitter, or stealing a base. Baseball more than any sport is a life lesson as a good hitter fails 70% of the time which means you get a great lesson in overcoming failures. I think the one aspect of the game that I enjoy the most is the camaraderie of being around my teammates both on and off the field. Life lessons and lifetime friends! “Man, this is baseball. You gotta stop thinking, just have fun.” – The Sandlot

MORRIS COUNTY CUBS SCOUT DAY RECAP


TJ Hunt
Director, PBR New Jersey

The Morris County Cubs Scout Day featured some top performers in all grad classes, but the 2021s stood out as the cream of the crop. Two commits in Northeastern recruit 2021 INF Justin Bosland (Roxbury HS, NJ) and Notre Dame LHP Jack Findlay (Roxbury HS, NJ) showcased why Roxbury High School will be a force to be reckoned with in the spring of 2021. In a rain-shortened first day, NJIT recruit 2021 INF Ty Salle (Parsippany Hills HS, NJ) showcased his next level athleticism and strength at the plate during BP, while recent Nichols College commit 2021 RHP Ben Weber (Pope John XXIII HS, NJ) and top uncommitted RHP Tim Crum (Sussex Tech HS, NJ) flashed promise on the bump.

OTHER NOTABLES

Notre Dame commit LHP Jack Findlay (Roxbury HS, NJ) bursts into the top 10 with a velocity bump since we saw him last in the spring of 2019. Upper 80s and low 90s fastball with two advanced offspeed offerings, Findlay has starter stuff at the next level, a bigger breaking curveball at 76-79 and a later, harder slider at 80-82.

Northeastern recruit Justin Bosland (Roxbury HS, NJ) was a virtual unknown - but really impressed at the Morris County Cubs Scout Day in early July. athletic, physical 6-foot-5 frame, Bosland showed off his speed, running a staggering 6.65 60 yard dash. A left handed stick, Bosland projects as more of a corner or OF'er at the next level, with the speed to play CF. Either way, Bosland is an intriging prospect to keep an eye on. He was also 87-88 on the mound in a bullpen setting.

Rutgers commit Duke recruit LHP Oren Abbott (Millburn HS, NJ) continues to show why he is one of the top hurlers in the class. Consistently upper 80s and touching 90, it's a clean delivery and a sharp mid-70s 1/7 breaker to complement.

Boston College commit RHP Sean Hard (St. Joseph's Montvale HS, NJ) makes a jump into the national rankings at No. 14. Routinely been in the low 90s, Hard has a lanky, athletic frame at 6-foot-5 198-pounds with more in the tank. 

Coastal Carolina recruit RHP Matt Potok (Jackson Memorial HS, NJ) was up to 93 mph this summer and has late life on the fastball in the upper 80s to low 90s. Sturdy, durable frame at 6-foot-3 210-pounds, Potok could be a fringe-type draft prospect next spring.

RHP Matt Rowe (Madison HS, NJ) was in the mid-80s this time last summer, but made a significant jump into the upper 80s touching 91 in 2020. Clean, repeatable arm from a 3/4 slot with some armside run.

ROXBURY, NJ – Three Roxbury High School seniors this week signed letters of intent to attend  and play sports at Division 1 universities.

The students, Jack Findlay, Justin Bosland and Thomas Shulz, signed the commitment documents on National Letter of Intent Signing Day.

Findlay committed to play baseball for the University of Notre Dame. Bosland committed to play baseball for Northeastern University. Schulz committed to compete on the Monmouth University Track and Field Team.

The young men were praised by their Roxbury High School coaches.

“Today's milestone for both Jack and Justin is significant because playing at the highest level of college baseball has been a dream for both players and today it became official,” said Roxbury High School Baseball Coach Greg Trotter. “Both players are tremendous young men that come from outstanding families and have given so much to our program and our school.”

Speaking of Findlay, Trotter cited the student’s hard work and talent.

“He has matured both physically and mentally through his four years,” the coach said. “As a freshman, he was a skinny, talented, competitive, confident kid and has matured into one of the top players in the state. Jack has been the winning pitcher in our last two State Sectional Championship games as a freshman and sophomore. Obviously, his junior year was canceled, but the sky is the limit when it comes to what Jack can do this upcoming season and through the rest of his career.”

Turning to Bosland, Trotter said the student’s road to becoming a Division 1 student/athlete was a bit different.

“Through no fault of his own, Justin has not been on the varsity field except for about 15 games,” said the coach. “As a sophomore, Justin was expected to be a huge contributor to our team both in the infield and on the mound. Unfortunately, an injury at the end of basketball season cost him the first half of the baseball season.”

But when Bosland recovered, “he began to show what a great athlete he was,” Trotter said. “He finished the season as our starting shortstop, one of our best offensive players and someone we trusted on the mound.”

Morris/Sussex Baseball Players To Watch Ahead of The 2021 Season

Nick Gantaifis

Morristown Daily Record

 It's been nearly two years since baseball was last played in New Jersey after the 2020 spring season was canceled due to the coronavirus outbreak. 

The last time we saw any area players, they were freshman and sophomores competing for playing time on varsity rosters. 

Plenty of progress and development has been made during the layoff, and 2021 will be one of the most highly anticipated seasons in recent memory.

With competition set to begin Monday, we take a look at some of the top Morris/Sussex players returning to the diamond.

A two-way player, Bosland appeared in limited action the last time we saw him as a sophomore. At 6-foot-5, 200 pounds, the Northeastern commit has strong speed and athleticism for his size and can hit for power from the left side. He will also contribute on the mound with a fastball that touches 90 mph.

News Release

Roxbury High School

Justin Bosland struck out 12 and walked none, allowing five hits and three runs (two earned) in a complete-game effort on the mound to lead fourth-seeded to a win at home over 13-seed Tenafly, 4-3, in the first round of the North Jersey, Section 1, Group 3 tournament.

 

Complete Box Score »

 

Bosland helped his own cause by hitting an RBI triple to kick off a four-run rally in the bottom of the first inning, capped by an RBI double from Nick Morales. Roxbury’s four runs in the bottom of the first would be enough, with Tenafly getting back two in the top of the fourth but Bosland remaining otherwise unblemished.

 

Roxbury (12-14) will face the winner of Wednesday’s matchup between fifth-seeded Wayne Hills and 12-seed Bergenfield in the quarterfinal round on Saturday.

 
 

Chris Arp singled once and scored once, also pitching five scoreless innings of relief for Tenafly, which falls to 9-16 with the loss.
