Moraga, CA- Saint Mary's head baseball coach Jedd Soto announced the commitment of three more student-athletes during the NCAA spring signing period for the 2007 season. The class is comprised of three high school players with two from Northern California and another from Tucson, AZ. With the conclusion of the spring signing period, Soto has now inked a total of 21 student-athletes for next season, which is the most brought to Moraga since the inception of the Soto era.
Saint Mary's two Northern California signees include Kevin Brahney LHP/IF (Fremont HS) and Adam Greenberg LHP/OF (Dublin HS). The Gaels added another out-of-state talent in Thomas Chadwick C/1B/DH (Salpointe Catholic HS) from Tucson, AZ.
Southpaw Kevin Brahney LHP/IF (Fremont HS) is a deceiving lefthander that misses bats. His 6-5, 220 pound presence on the mound will cause problems for opposing batters. This season Brahney sports a 1.40 ERA and 64 strikeouts in 50 innings. Opponents are batting a meager .170 against him and he showcases a 7-2 record with a save and five complete games. A couple weeks ago Brahney gave Gael fans a sniff of his stuff when he fanned 17 in a single game.
Thomas Chadwick C/1B/DH from Salpointe HS is a multi-sport athlete that can get it done on the field and off. Chadwick was a 5A Southern Region selection his junior season after batting .358 with a home run and 16 RBIs. Chadwick added nine runs and four doubles. This season, he is batting .377 with two home runs and 14 RBIs. Chadwick is slugging .585 and has added five doubles and 10 runs. He also was a starting lineman on the Salpointe football team where they made two consecutive trips to the Arizona semifinals.
Adam Greenberg LHP/OF (Dublin HS) brings a potent left-handed arm to Moraga along with one of the top ERAs in the state. Greenberg is currently ranked No. 23 in California with a 0.58 ERA and adds 64 strikeouts in 47 innings. On top of his 64 Ks, Greenberg has only walked 11 and has allowed just one extra base hit. He is currently 6-0 with three complete game shutouts. At the plate, Greenberg is just as lethal, batting .393 with a home run and 18 RBIs. He has also added five doubles, two triples and 13 runs in 18 games. He is ranked No. 86 in the state by Perfect Game for the class of 2006.
