There aren't many days during the calendar year when baseball players all across the region celebrate the biggest athletic accomplishment of their respective lives as openly as National Letter of Intent Signing Day.
Nov. 9 marked that day in which athletes are recognized for all of the hard work, dedication and effort that goes into earning an opportunity to play at the college level.
Student-athletes who have spent the greater part of the last decade yearning for opportunities to play beyond high school were able to put pen to paper as they formally committed to college programs. Some of those players took part in formal signing ceremonies at their respective schools to honor their achievements.
Here's a look at some of the scenes across New England from NLI Signing Day ceremonies.
