Brigantine, NJ, native makes Rutgers debut going 4-4 with double
Three Cape-Atlantic League alums made their 2023 collegiate baseball debuts on Friday for Rutgers University.
Brigantine resident Trevor Cohen, a 2022 Holy Spirit graduate, had an outstanding debut, going 4-4 with his first collegiate double.
Cohen, who was a four-year letter winner at the Absecon school, also played quarterback for the Spartans. He excelled as a junior, hitting .410 with 19 RBIs to earn First Team CAL honors, leading the Spartans to a state title.
He also was named MVP of the prestigious Carpenter Cup in 2022, where he batted .667 with two runs, two doubles a triple and five RBI in five games.
He is part of a Cape-Atlantic League pipeline of players, playing for the Scarlet Knights.
That list includes 2020 ACIT alum Tony Santa Maria, who was a First Team All-CAL and First Team All-State player for the Red Hawks. He went 2-5 in the opener for Rutgers.
Another Cape-Atlantic League alum is Egg Harbor Twp alum, Jordan Sweeney. Sweeney hit .380 on 71 hits with 71 RBIs in first three seasons at EHT and was named First Team All-State, First Team All-South Jersey and First Team All-CAL in 2017 for the Eagles.
These three make up a tremendous amount of Cape-Atlantic League players playing collegiate baseball in 2023.
