It’s not often that a MIAA B Conference baseball player has an opportunity to play in college on the Division I level, but Park graduate Ben Brewster, who pitched the Bruins to victory in the league championship game last spring, is part of an impressive freshman class entering the University of Maryland this fall.

A four-year starter with the Bruins, Brewster is a 6-foot-3 lefty who was named All-MIAA in 2008 and 2010.  In the final of last spring’s MIAA B Conference Tournament, Brewster pitched a complete game while striking out 16 and not issuing a single walk.

He finished the year with an 8-0 record, pitching 42.2 innings while striking out 88 and walking 11. He allowed just three earned runs all season and gave up only 13 hits. Brewster also carried a 4.0 grade-point average.

With 23 players signed for the Class of 2010 and the recent announcements that the Class of 2011 will include Calvert Hall’s Matt Bosse, Loyola’s AJ Lardo and John Carroll’s KJ Hockaday, the Terps have appeared to have established a pipeline to the baseball talent in the MIAA.
