Falmouth senior Will D’Agostino, joined by (from left) Falmouth assistant coach Bob Milliken, D’Agostino’s mother, Kristine, and coach Kevin Winship, signs his National Letter of Intent to attend and play baseball at the College of the Holy Cross. D’Agostino, a shortstop who hit .339 with 10 RBI and 14 runs scored last spring, was considering several schools before deciding on Holy Cross.
“I’m relieved and happy,” said D’Agostino, who hasn’t decided on a major. “I was leaning toward Patriot and Ivy League schools. Holy Cross was the best fit academically and athletically. They’re the most competitive team in the Patriot League. They’ll push me.”
Winship said he thinks D’Agostino has the tools to succeed in college.
“We knew he was a special player as a freshman,” Winship said. “He did everything he needed to do and became the player he is now. I think (Holy Cross is) a good fit academically and athletically. He won’t fall through the cracks. He’ll get a chance to show the coaches what he can do. He’s got size and a great glove, an above average arm, he hits for power and average, he has all the tools. He’s just a solid, all-around player.”
D’Agostino, who also was a championship winning goalie for the boys’ soccer team, credits his time with the Yachtsmen in getting him to the next level.
“This program has helped my game,” he said. “The coaches have done a lot to help out. Since freshman year, they’ve pushed me. I thank them for getting me here today.”
