CANTON – The transition to a new sport is never easy in youth sports development, especially when breaking in during the high school years. For a high school athlete entering a new sport in his sophomore year, then being called up halfway through the same season to the varsity level, is nothing short of remarkable. However, SUNY Canton’s Seth Douglas made that transition with remarkable success, due to natural ability, a quick bat and a strong work ethic. Since reaching the college level, he has found himself in the midst of one of the most dominant careers ever in SUNY Canton athletics. Already, he holds the school’s career and single-season records, crushing eleven home runs in his first eighty games at Canton. Douglas has gained the attention of several major league teams and scouts within the first five years of playing the sport.

Beginning – Motorcycle Racing to Baseball
Seth’s journey was not always one of immediate success on the base paths. For several years, he focused his time and energy on a totally different sport. “I used to race motorcycles for about six or seven years, and that just got too expensive so my parents and I decided to choose a sport that was a little cheaper and closer to home. So I chose football and baseball,” said Douglas. That change in passions eventually led him to baseball.

His talent indicated strong potential, but his lack of familiarity with the game made the transition seemingly more demanding. Douglas remembered, “It was hard for me to come in, not playing before and not fully understanding the game of baseball. It was small stuff like not knowing to hit the cutoff or hitting to the right side in certain situations that I didn’t quite grasp right away until later on. It was a matter of processing it over and over again, making sure that I had it down...trying to get better and better.”

Douglas’ varsity coach in Reedsburg noticed the potential and work ethic instilled within his young outfielder. “The varsity coach noticed my playing abilities and how I played and he brought me up to varsity halfway through my sophomore year.” From there, Douglas continued to work in the off-seasons and throughout the summer with his father and trainers in the weight room, cages and on the field. By his senior season, Douglas’ stellar performance had earned All-Region and All-State recognition in Wisconsin.

His collegiate career began with a minuscule role at Division II powerhouse Bemidji State in Minnesota, before venturing eastward for a better playing opportunity.

As he searched, Douglas used basic gauges that many athletes take into consideration, such as coaching philosophies, win-loss record and whether he would have an opportunity to play regularly in his first season. However, he had an additional influence. “My girlfriend and I were both looking for a school where we both could play our sports. She got recruited to play hockey (at SUNY Canton), and that’s when I started to contact the coaches. My girlfriend ended up coming here, so I pursued coming here as well.” SUNY Canton head coach Joe Carbone admits that he was a little surprised when he was first contacted by Douglas. “With Seth, the green flag was obviously his playing ability. When he sent his email, his video was off the charts.” And many ways, his unconventional path demonstrated a strong desire and willingness to work in pursuing his baseball mission.

Developing Raw Talent to the College Level
Seth Douglas’ list of successes for such a short period of time has garnered the attention of several major league teams, because of his bat speed, quickness, arm strength and ability to make consistent ball contact. SUNY Canton’s baseball coaches were the source of knowledge Douglas needed and the college has provided the opportunities to help him achieve his goals. But the right-hander says it was a struggle trying to perfect every aspect of his game. “I wanted to do everything how my coaches taught and, mechanics-wise, just wanted to do everything perfectly.” Douglas added, “Coach Rivera and I immediately worked together on my hitting, because I think he saw how fast I was able to change my swing to what he wanted for the college level.” However, Coach Carbone says a lot of Douglas’ success “is God-given natural ability and dedication, along with his hard work. There isn’t a day where I come in here and he’s not in the weight room or hitting in the cages.” While Douglas was a raw talent upon first arriving at SUNY Canton, Carbone says, “He was very coachable, but he also coached himself. He can watch an at-bat, see what he did wrong and correct it. Seth’s strengths are a combination of natural abilities, hand-eye coordination and ability to make in-game adjustments to the pitchers.”

Seth’s Playing Strengths
When Seth is at the plate, you can hear the difference when he makes contact. “Probably half of his home runs he didn’t hit 100 percent. When he makes contact, it sounds like an AR-15. When he squares the ball up, it sounds like a shotgun. That’s what I saw in the video in his first email.” Besides the incredible pop that comes along with his swing, Douglas throws the ball 90 mph from the infield. “He’s also quick, he’s got quick hands. He’s a five-tool player who hasn’t reached his potential yet. Every time I watch him, he gets better right in front of my eyes. He runs a 6.7-6.8 (in a 60-yard dash), he has a ‘plus arm’ and plays ‘plus defense.’ He hits the ball for power, he hits for average has that much instinct that he has developed.”

Another aspect of Douglas’ game is his ability to adjust and be flexible. Seth recalls when his role changed defensively in a transition from the outfield to first base. “We played in Myrtle Beach on our way back from Florida, and Coach asked me, ‘First base… You ever play it?’ I told him that I hadn’t. He said, ‘Alright well give you a starting chance there.’ It was definitely new and a struggle at first. But I’m glad I had a teammate, Chris Roenbeck, who helped me out a lot, especially for my first couple of starts.” Since then, Carbone says, “Even though he’s been playing a new position at first base, where he’s been for a year and a half, he’s turned himself into an asset defensively.”

Quiet, Unassuming Work Ethic, Team Loyalty
SUNY Canton’s coach says perhaps what has attracted several Major League Baseball teams is Douglas’ approach and personality. “Seth is probably one of the best human beings that I’ve ever been around and coached. He’s totally authentic. He works with players on the team that are newer to the roster. He has no ego. He’s always the first one at practice and the last to leave. He’s totally dedicated to making himself the best he can be. In addition, he’s very loyal to the program. Especially since he has had other opportunities after his “monster” first year with us, but he decided to come back.”

Seth had a stellar first season with the SUNY Canton program, despite what he thought was a sluggish start. “I was thinking that if I don’t start well and I don’t play to my potential, then other people would get the starting chance over me. First game came and I struggled, but Coach gave me a second chance. I went on a hot streak and we played well in the playoffs.”

His strong first season at SUNY Canton would have been difficult to duplicate, but Seth was able to build upon that success with even greater production in his second season. Douglas hit .383 with a .636 slugging percentage. He launched eight home runs with 59 hits, collected 51 RBIs and scored 30 runs in just 39 regular-season games. Seth was named a Division III National Player of the Week, Empire 8 Player of the Week, Empire 8 First Team, USCAA All-American, First Team All Conference and several other awards. Coach Carbone and the Roos’ coaching staff agree that Seth is a role model to his teammates and the SUNY Canton community. “He doesn’t fall under the distractions of college,” Carbone said. “He’s a good student-athlete. If you were to ever recruit a player to be a student-athlete, a model student-athlete, it would be Seth Douglas.”

May 9: Christian Nazario-Cruz (Naguabo, Puerto Rico) and Jeremy Baez (Bronx, NY) posted three hits each as the SUNY Canton baseball team closed out the Empire 8 Tournament with a fourth place finish after dropping a 9-4 decision to St. John Fisher College in the consolation game on Saturday.   The Roos (14-30) were extremely competitive finishing with 13 hits on the day compared to 14 for the Cardinals but five errors defensively hurt SUNY Canton.   Fisher jumped out to a quick start plating five runs in the opening inning and added one in the second to lead 6-0 early. The Cardinals (25-18) extended their lead to 7-0 in the top of the fifth.   SUNY Canton got on the board in the fifth when Seth Douglas (Reedsburg, WI) used an RBI single to center field to score Travis Schindler (West Islip, NY). Schindler used a 2 RBI base hit in the sixth to score Brandon Welch (Constable, NY) and Baez. The Roos rounded out their scoring when Welch brought home Nazario-Cruz on an RBI single.   Senior Dom Deliberti (Staten Island, NY) got the start in his final collegiate game giving up five runs in one inning, although just a single run was earned. Derek Harkin (Ottawa, ON) tossed five innings in relief surrendering just four hits and two earned runs. Zach Lawrence (West Palm Beach, FL) closed out the final three innings of the game giving up one earned on five hits.   This closes out the 2015 season for the baseball team. The Roos finish the inaugural Empire 8 Tournament in fourth place after coming into the week as the seven seed.

May 8: Senior John Mancini (Scotia, NY) pitched a gem of a game giving up just three hits in a complete game shutout as the SUNY Canton baseball team earned a 6-0 victory against Houghton College on Friday in the Empire 8 Tournament hosted by Utica College. Mancini had a remarkable outing on the mound striking out 11 batters while walking just three in nine innings of work. The Scotia, NY native got off to a quick start as he fanned nine batters and giving up just two hits in the first five innings of work. The Roos (14-29) gave Mancini plenty of run support as Chris Roenbeck (Plattsburgh, NY) ripped a two run homer to right center field in the second to plate Brandon Welch (Constable, NY). Welch scored Jeremy Baez (Bronx, NY) on an RBI single to right in the third inning to extend the lead to 3-0. SUNY Canton added two more in the fifth. Seth Douglas (Reedsburg, WI) legged out a one out infield tingle and stole second. After Baez got hit by a pitch both runners advanced on a wild pitch. Nicolas Demarais (Plattsburgh, NY) showed patience drawing a walk to load the bases. The Highlanders issued another walk, this one to Welch, to bring Douglas across. Roenbeck then reached on an error to score Baez. The Roos added one more run in the seventh. Baez reached on a one out double to left center and with two down in the inning Welch drove him home on his third RBI of the game on a base hit to right. Welch led SUNY Canton with two hits while driving in three runs. Roenbeck finished with 2 RBI as SUNY Canton was helped out by five Houghton fielding errors. Jesse Barton (Belle Glade, FL) also doubled for the Roos.

May 8: In an elimination game in the Liberty League tournament, the Clarkson University Baseball team fell short as they lost to RPI 10-3 on Friday afternoon at Robison Field. Clarkson is now 24-9 on the season while RPI is 24-15. The 24 wins for the Green and Gold are the third highest total in Clarkson history. If Clarkson wants to add to that total, they will have to hope for an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament. Clarkson got on the board first with a run in the top of the first inning. First, junior Greg Jasek doubled down the right field line, the third double of the tournament for Jasek. Freshman Will Coleman followed with a single to score Jasek and make it 1-0. After that it would be all RPI though. The Engineers tied the game with a run in the bottom of the second, and then took the lead with two runs in the third and three more in the fourth. Another run in the fifth gave RPI a 7-1 lead. Clarkson cut into the lead with two runs in the sixth. Will Coleman reached on an error and then a double by sophomore Dom Pirro placed runners on second and third with one out. Senior Nolan Driscoll's groundout scored Coleman and then senior Tim Beninati singled to plate Pirro. That would be all the Golden Knights got however, and RPI added a run in the seventh and two in the eighth for a final score of 10-3.   Junior Joe Rooney started the game for Clarkson and pitched three innings, allowing five runs on six hits. Junior Anthony Padrazo pitched the next three and surrendered three runs on five hits. Sophomore Jeremy Barber closed the game out, pitching two innings and allowing two runs on two hits.

May 8: In its second game of the Liberty League tournament, the Clarkson University Baseball team fell to RIT 9-5 on Friday afternoon at Robison Field. Clarkson is now 24-8 on the season while RIT improves to 23-13. RIT got on the board first with a run in the top of the first inning, but Clarkson answered in the third when sophomore Paul Ludden scored on a double by junior Greg Jasek. RIT would regain the lead with a run in the fourth and then added one more in both the sixth and the seventh to open a 4-1 advantage. Two more RIT runs in the top of the eighth made it 6-1 in favor of the Tigers and the game appeared to be slipping away from Clarkson. The Golden Knights answered however, with three runs of their own in the bottom of the inning. Clarkson's first three batters reached base to load the bases without an out. After an RIT pitching change, sophomore Chris Miller doubled down the right field line to score senior Matt Jenack and Jasek. Sophomore Dom Pirro followed Miller with a single of his own to bring home Will Coleman and make the score 6-4. That was as close as Clarkson would get as RIT scored three runs in the top of the ninth to make it 9-4. Clarkson scored once in the bottom of the ninth, but it was not enough and RIT closed the game out. Sophomore Ted Wilson started the game on the mound and pitched five and two thirds innings, giving up three runs on nine hits. Freshman Andrew Smith pitched the next three innings and allowed six runs on seven hits. Finally, junior Jamie Terry recorded the final out and gave up one hit.

May 7: All nine starters picked up a hit and scored a run as the Clarkson University Baseball team won their opening game of the Liberty League Tournament 17-1 over the University of Rochester. Clarkson is now 24-7 overall while Rochester is 26-15. This is the 10th time in 13 years that Clarkson has made it to the Liberty League tournament and it is the seventh time that they have won their opening round game. It also ties the highest scoring game ever for Clarkson in the conference tournament and it is the second widest margin of victory for any Liberty League tournament game. Clarkson opened the scoring in the bottom of the third when junior Greg Jasek's two run double brought home seniors Tim Beninati and Matt Jenack, followed by Jasek scoring on a wild pitch. Two innings later, Clarkson would break the game open with a five run fifth. First, freshman Will Coleman singled with the bases loaded to score his brother, senior John Coleman. Two batters later, senior Nolan Driscoll cleared the bases with a home run to right center to give Clarkson a commanding 8-0 lead. In the sixth inning, sophomore Paul Ludden hit a two-run home run of his own to make it 10-0. After a Rochester home run made it 10-1, the Golden Knights would score five more runs in the bottom of the seventh and two more in the bottom of the eighth to bring the final score to 17-1. Will Coleman pitched the first seven innings of the game, allowing only four hits and just one run. Junior Jamie Terry pitched the final two innings and did not give up a run or a hit. Jasek and Driscoll both led the way with four RBI's while Ludden had three and sophomore Dom Pirro finished with two. Pirro had three hits while six other Clarkson batters finished with a pair of hits. Clarkson's next game will take place tomorrow at 1:00 pm when they face the winner of today's game between RPI and RIT.

May 3: On the final day of the 2015 season the St. Lawrence baseball team played its third extra-inning game in five days and it's second against Clarkson this weekend, falling 8-7 in nine innings to the Golden Knights in game one before being handed a 13-5 loss in game two. The Saints had an early lead in both games, but Clarkson battled back for the sweep. St. Lawrence finishes the season with a 16-21 overall record and was 7-16 in conference games, while Clarkson improves to 23-7 and 16-6. Trailing 1-0 through two innings, the Saints scored five runs on six hits in the top of the third to take the lead. Andrew Schreyack, Jake Levin and Mic Regan strung together three straight singles before Chris Fernandez ripped a two-RBI double to right field.  After Regan scored on a wild pitch and Mark Syron was intentionally walked, Isaac Lewis hit a double of his own to left to plate another run for the Saints and Adam Reichel followed with a single that scored Syron to make it 5-1. The Golden Knights responded with three runs on three hits in the bottom half of the frame to cut the visitors' lead to 5-4 and plated the game-tying run in the fourth on an RBI single by Matt Jenack. Tom Sullivan pinch-ran for Schreyack in the sixth inning and came home on a single to center field by Regan to help St. Lawrence regain a 6-5 lead. Clarkson answered with a pair of runs in the bottom of the sixth to make it 7-6 in favor of the Golden Knights heading into the final inning. Lewis walked and Reichel singled to left to put runners on the corners for Devin Robson. Robson it into what looked to be a double play, but the sophomore hustled down the line to beat out the throw and keep the inning alive, allowing Lewis to score the game-tying run. Clarkson left the bases loaded in the bottom of the seventh to send the game to extras. But they would capitalize on a walk to lead off the bottom of the ninth as a sac bunt and single to center brought Connor Dietrich home as the game-winning run. Regan, Fernandez and Adam Reichel each had two hits in the first game, while Fernandez led the Saints with two RBI. Will Fellows, who was the fourth pitcher used by Head Coach Pete Hoy in the contest, took the loss. He threw one and one-third innings and allowed two hits and the winning run. Sam Downes started on the mound in game one, going three and a third and allowing five runs on eight hits with two strikeouts. Liam Rogers and Frank Grady, who made his third appearance this week, also pitched in the contest. In game two, St. Lawrence scored four runs in the top of the first on three hits, two walks and a hit by pitch to take the early lead. With two runners on and two outs, Reichel singled through the right side to plate Syron and then Robson singled to left to score Lewis. After Michael LeFevre walked, Kyle Liszewski hit a two-RBI single to right for the final runs of the inning. Clarkson scored three runs on two hits in the bottom half of the frame and would go on to add 10 more through the next three innings; including four runs a piece in the second and third en route to the eventual 13-5 win. Starter Jake Farrell took the loss for the Saints, as he allowed six runs on three hits with three walks and one strikeout in an inning and two-thirds. Reichel and Liszewski led St. Lawrence in the contest, both had two hits while Reichel scored two runs and Liszewski drove in two runs. 

May 2: Senior Andrew Schreyack allowed just six hits in a complete-game, 11-inning victory over Clarkson as the Saints erased a three-run deficit in the bottom of the seventh inning before earning a 4-3 win on a Devin Robson sac fly. They nearly did it again in game two but the Golden Knights early five-run lead proved to be too much, as Clarkson took the win 5-4 to earn the split in the final home games of the season for St. Lawrence. With the split, St. Lawrence is now 16-19 and 7-14 in the Liberty League. Meanwhile, Clarkson is 21-7 and 14-6 and clinched a solidified its spot in the Liberty League tournament this afternoon. Senior Chris Fernandez and Robson led the Saints with 4-for-8 and 3-for-8 afternoons, respectively. Mic Regan drove in a combined three runs and Adam Reichel's home run to right field; his second of the year, sparked the Saints' four-run rally in the fourth inning of game two. In game one, Clarkson opened up a 3-0 lead in the third inning, but managed just two more hits off of Schreyack in the contest. The Liverpool, N.Y. native walked in the Golden Knights' first run before Will Coleman hit a two-RBI single to right field. In the bottom of the seventh inning after a pair of singles by Robson and first-year Michael LeFevre, and a pair of fielder's choices by Kyle MacDonald and Reichel, sophomore Kyle Liszewski stepped to the plate with two outs and runners on first and third. He hit a routine ground ball to second base, but Clarkson's Matt Jenack threw the ball well wide of his first baseman; allowing Lizsewski to not only reach safely, but advance to second and LeFevre to score. Regan then ripped a two-RBI singled to right center field to tie the game at 3-3 and force extras. Isaac Lewis led off the bottom of the 11th inning with a single to center field. He then stole second and advance to third on the throwing error by the Golden Knights' catcher; setting up Robson for the game-winning sacrifice fly to center field. Schreyack, who improved to 4-2 on the season, finished with four strikeouts in the win. Andrew Smith was the pitcher of record for Clarkson as he pitched two and one-third innings in relief and allowed one hit, one run and struck out one. In game two, Clarkson built a 4-0 lead through the first three innings off of starting pitcher Ben Jenkins, who allowed seven hits in two and two-third innings. He was relieved by Alex Dermody, who took the loss for St. Lawrence after giving up the eventual game-winning run in the fourth inning on a Dom Pirro double to right field increased the visitors lead to 5-0. The Saints responded with four runs in the bottom half of the frame, starting with a lead off solo shot by Reichel. With runners on the corners, Regan reached on an error by the third baseman that brought LeFevre home to cut the deficit to 5-2. An RBI double to the base of the wall in left field by Fernandez scored Liszewski and Regan later took home one a wild pitch to pull St. Lawrence within one at 5-4. They had the game-tying run at third base in both the fifth and seventh innings, but couldn't convert to once again force extra innings. Seniors Fernandez, Jenkins, Mark Syron and Schreyack were honored in a pregame ceremony on Tom Fay Field. Heading into tomorrow games, the group has compiled a 79-67-2 record and appeared in two Liberty League tournaments, including a trip to the championship game in 2012.

April 28: The Plattsburgh State baseball team was able to close its 2015 campaign on a high note as the Cardinals broke out the brooms and swept Norwich in a non-conference doubleheader at Garrity Field on Tuesday afternoon. GAME ONE: Plattsburgh State 7, Norwich 3 Playing in his final collegiate baseball series, senior Frank Buksa backed Scott Orr's high-quality outing on the hill with three hits and an equal number of RBIs as the Cardinals came back to secure the win in game one. Final-year man Brian Latulipe also added a trio of base knocks to Plattsburgh State's 11-hit assault and scored a pair of runs. Billy Rombauts got the Cardinals' offensive assault going in the top of the second when he laced a one-out double to center field which scored Tyler Bulich to make matters 1-0. Orr was straight up dealing on the hill and faced just 10 batters in the first 3.1 innings before the Cadets conjured up two-thirds of their total offensive output to take the lead in the fourth. A pair of singles by the Cadets set the table for sophomore Brandon Pedley who drove a two-out double to center which scored two runs and put the home team in front 2-1. It didn't take long for the visitors to provide a response, though, as Frank Buksa knotted matters at two-all with a one-out two bagger in the fifth which plated Latulipe. After Mike Vargues took a walk to load the bases, sophomore TJ Montalbano delivered a hit which put the visitors ahead for good. The Dix Hills, N.Y., product connected for a two-run single to center field. A third Plattsburgh State run would score on one of three Cadet miscues. Plattsburgh State remained in front by a 5-2 tally until Frank Buksa scored Latulipe and Ray Flynn with a one-out single in the top of the sixth. Norwich scratched out just one more run against Orr as Tim Dargan registered an RBI groundout in the bottom of the seventh. In order to improve to 6-3, Orr fired all seven innings and gave up seven hits, two walks and all three runs while fanning two. Rombauts was the only other member of the Cardinals who finished with multiple hits by way of a 2-for-3 performance at the plate. Kyle Farquharson suffered the loss for Norwich by surrendering eight hits, one walk and five runs in 4.1 innings. GAME TWO: Plattsburgh State 6, Norwich 3 After a strong relief outing against SUNY Cortland on Sunday, sophomore Andrew Kramer was elevated to the starting role in the Cardinals' season finale and didn't disappoint. The Clifton Park, N.Y., product tossed 6.1 innings of eight-hit, three-run baseball to up his 2015 record to 3-2. All of the runs Kramer gave up came in the first inning and after his work was done the sophomore gave the ball to senior Nick Lupo who toed the rubber and picked up the save. Plattsburgh State's only error of the game led to the first Norwich run and a Billy Whaley RBI single coupled with a passed ball allowed two more Cadet baserunners to cross home plate and up the home team's edge to 3-0 after one inning. It took until the fourth inning before Plattsburgh State manufactured its first pair of runs in the non-conference battle. Montalbano led off the inning with a base on balls before Jack Tolosky legged out an infield single. After Rombauts was hit by a pitch, Bulich picked up an RBI when he reached on an error. Latulipe trimmed the Cardinals' deficit to just one with an RBI single which plated Tolosky. The remaining four runs for the Cardinals all came around to score in the top half of the fifth. Vargues cranked a one-out double to left field before advancing to third on a wild pitch. Montalbano knotted things at three after reaching on the second of four Norwich errors. That particular miscue allowed Vargues to score. A costly two-out error allowed three more Plattsburgh State runs to score in the frame. Bulich reached on a miscue by the shortstop which caused the bases to clear. Rombauts, Krogh and Montalbano rushed home to account for the final score. After a tough go of things in the first, Kramer settled into a nice groove by allowing just three hits in innings two through seven. Latulipe and Krogh collected two hits apiece in the win while Brian Whaley (0-5) lasted 4.2 innings and was charged with six hits, four walks and six runs in the setback. Plattsburgh State concludes the 2015 with a 14-20 mark and says goodbye to a nine-man senior class featuring the likes of Vargues, Matt Meunier, Lupo, Krogh, Latulipe, Joe Tolosky, Will Flynn, Chris Pescetti and Frank Buksa.
