Northeastern received another boost to its talent pool on Monday when a former Massachusetts High School Player of the Year, Jack Goodman, announced his intention to transfer from Pepperdine University.
Goodman spent one year at Pepperdine after earning a selection by the Texas Rangers in the 15th round of the 2022 MLB Draft. That came on the heels of a senior season at Medfield High in which Goodman hit .523 with seven home runs, 28 RBIs, and 39 runs scored while earning Tri-Valley League MVP and Boston Globe Player of the Year.
Goodman, who has experience playing in the Cape Cod League and NECBL, figures to be an immediate contributor for the Huskies, most likely as the starting shortstop and a top-of-the-order bat.
"That's the plan for now," Goodman said. "Nobody's job is safe; you have to earn everything and keep at it. But this is the right move for me. I'm really excited to come back home and play for Coach (Mike) Glavine."
