IMG Alumni Doing Well

Posted on: April 25, 2010

IMG Baseball

For those of you that were here last year, you might remember the likes of; L.J. Mazzilli, Quinn Pippin, Adam Zabel, John Ryan Murphy and Jack Daru to name a few. After battling out their senior season here at IMG, they were ready to graduate and move on to the college and professional rankings. John Ryan Murphy as many know, was drafted in the second round of the 2009 MLB draft and is having a very successful season in the Yankee’s organization. In my opinion the second most talent player to come out of last years graduating class was shortstop L.J. Mazzilli. Mazzilli is currently starting at the University of Connecticut as is hitting an impressive .290 and recorded his first home run of the year last week. During the summer, Mazzilli will continue his playing career in the Cape Cod League, a very talented league for amateur players. Quinn Pippin and Adam Zabel both are playing at Tulane University. Adam has started a majority of the games this year and Quinn is beginning to get playing time as the year goes on. Last but not least is catcher Jack Daru who is attending St. Leo’s University right here in Florida. Jack is splitting time behind the plate and has already hit a few home runs on the year. IMG alumni are doing very well at the next level. Look for many of these names to be called in the MLB draft within the next few years. All of these ballplayers are sincerely missed on campus and the ballpark, but we know they are doing all they can to be successful out in the real world.
