GBG's ace pitcher Jake Noviello is entering his sophomore season at Division I Fairfield University where he majors in Business Administration. Jake played high school baseball at Franklin High where he was the captain of the 2018 team that won the Super 8 High School Tournament.
Jake played 4 years for the GBG Hawks program where he was always the ace of the staff. "Jake's strength has always been on the mound. He is everything you would expect from an Ace pitcher. He is super competitive, not afraid to challenge hitters, and a confidence and mound presence that made those around him better." says assistant director of the GBG Hawks Chris Sullivan.
"Jake has always been a great teammate. He brings a noticeable energy to any team he's been a part of and has always been the type of player to care deeply about the name represented on the front of the jersey. Jake worked very hard at his craft and we would often see him at the facility on "off days" trying to get better." says Sullivan.
Jake had a solid freshman season at Division I Fairfield University where he pitched 30 innings and made 9 appearances on the mound. He finished 1-1 on the mound with a 4.70 ERA in 30 innings with 18 strikeouts. We expect a big sophomore season by Jake in 2020.
