Varsity Baseball Says Goodbye To 13 Seniors

Five players move on to play college ball.

The Falcons varsity baseball team will have lots of big cleats to fill next year.

The team graduates 13 seniors, nearly half of its roster.

“This was one of the best group of kids I’ve ever worked with," Coach Tom Hilbert said. "They gave me their all for four years and I’m gonna miss them a lot."

At least five graduating players signed on to play ball at the next level. Here's the breakdown:

  • has been scouted since his freshman year when the Falcons won their last state title. Mike is going to the Univeristy of South Florida. He verbally committed to USF over a year and a half ago, but signed his letter in November.
  • Casey Turgeon, Dunedin’s all-time leader in hits, will be playing ball next year at the University of Florida. Turgeon has been verbally committed for some time but signed his letter, last November with teammate Mike Clarkson.
  • Andrew Brodbeck recently accepted a scholarship offer from Flagler College. Brodbeck had as many as ten offers from different schools to choose from.
  • Both and Jordan Savinon will play for St.Petersburg College next year.

Also graduating are: Alex Libby, Kyle Kunnen, Seth Brenner, Justin Barker, Aaron Braley, Cameron Oxiner, Julian Garzon and Chase Smith.
