AMHERST, N.H. — Dan Trzepacz is one of the fortunate ones.
While many aspiring high school baseball players endure weeks, months and sometimes years waiting for a call, a letter or an email from a college program in the hopes of being offered a scholarship, Trzepacz’s time frame during the recruiting process proved to be much shorter.
Trzepacz (Mont Vernon, N.H.), a stellar first baseman/outfielder at Souhegan High School, began being wooed by a few Division 1 programs during his freshman season. It wasn’t too long after that when he was offered and accepted a scholarship to play for the University of Delaware.
The Blue Hens' coaching staff had Trzepacz on its radar late into his freshman season. Much of that had to do with former Souhegan coach — and New Hampshire coaching legend — Bill Dod, who saw something special in his young prodigy almost immediately and decided to reach out to Delaware head coach Jim Sherman.
