With a 2-0 record and an opposing batting average of just .264, Cook has pitched well. He’s planning to throw for the Ocean State Wave in Rhode Island this summer in the New England Collegiate Baseball League. Last summer, he made five starts for Martha’s Vineyard of the Futures League.
“Unbelievable place to be. Very cool atmosphere,” Cook said of his time on the Vineyard. “The best part about summer baseball is seeing different hitters from all over and the more relaxed environment.”
The Huskies have increased their win total in each of Cook’s three seasons, and winning a Beanpot at Fenway will certainly be a highlight. Now, the focus is on doing some more winning before the Huskies hang up the spikes for 2013.
“For me, it’s about maintaining that mental. I have to be ready for every situation,” said Cook.
