Fresh off Virginia’s sixth College World Series appearance, 15 players from the squad will participate in collegiate leagues around the country this summer. Currently, nine incoming Cavaliers are also slated to play summer ball.

UVA will send a total of eight players to the Cape Cod League, including Ethan Anderson, Griff O’Ferrall, and Casey Saucke, who will team up to play for the Harwich Mariners. Bradley Hodges, Jack O’Connor and Jay Woolfolk will be on the pitching staff for the Hyannis Harbor Hawks. Chase Hungate and Cullen McKay will also travel to the Cape to play for the Orleans Firebirds and Cotuit Kettleers, respectively.

Harrison Didawick, Luke Hanson, Henry Godbout and Anthony Stephan will all head to the Northwoods League. Stephan will play his second season for Kalamazoo after he was the recipient of the 2022 Northwoods League Rawlings “Big Stick” Award as a first baseman.

The Cavaliers will have three players on the Charlottesville Tom Sox this summer – Aidan Teel, Jonny Farmelo (incoming recruit) and Henry Ford (incoming recruit).
