Northeastern freshman Sebastian Keane was a busy man at this time a year ago.
The North Andover, Mass., native was preparing for a senior season that culminated in a Super 8 state championship for his Scarlet Knights. Of course, there were conversations with scouts from all across Major League Baseball mixed in all throughout the spring.
Though the Boston Red Sox drafted him in the 11th round last June, the 6-foot-3, 170-pound Keane opted to follow his college commitment to pitch for the Huskies and became the first player in program history to do so.
What happened after his first four starts of the season, though, could not have been predicted. Just a week before his team was scheduled to begin Colonial Athletic Association play, the season was halted for good due to the coronavirus pandemic.
