Eight-year Canterbury School baseball coach Todd Mathewson spends part of summers moonlighting with Baseball U CT, a college development program located in Fairfield, Conn. History will show that some of the Nutmeg State's most talented players, past and present, have steadily flowed through Baseball U CT before moving on to play a high level of collegiate baseball.
Two of Baseball U CT players, Richie Kerstetter and James Morice, were enrolled in public high schools -- Kerstetter at Notre Dame Catholic High and Morice at Pomperaug Regional High. Mathewson spoke to Kersetter and Morice at length about the many assets Canterbury provides for its student body.
"Richie had some injuries and was looking to reclassify," Mathewson said. "He came to Canterbury as a repeat junior. Richie has been everything that I could ask for while at Canterbury. He is a charismatic young man who is a great teammate and other players want to play with him and be around him."
Kerstetter, who maintains a 3.8 GPA, pitched 26 innings last spring, allowing just six runs while striking out 34. A left-handed pitcher and first baseman, he contributed as a two-way prospect. Morice, who earned a 3.9 GPA last school year, batted .345 and also logged 18 innings on the mound.
