Immediate Release: June 18, 2007
VESTAL, N.Y. - Binghamton baseball has signed two high school athletes and one junior college recruit, continuing a busy offseason for the reigning America East regular season champions. Head coach Tim Sinicki has now secured 12 newcomers for his 2008 squad.
Committing to play for the Bearcats are high school talents James Guilietti (Plainview, N.Y.) and Rasheed Bility (Brooklyn, N.Y.) along with junior college transfer Ryan Holley (Frankfort, Ill.).
"We feel very fortunate to sign three guys like Ryan, James and Rasheed during the late period," Sinicki said. "Ryan brings a tremendous amount of experience, having played at a premier junior college program like Oakton. We expect him to be our everyday guy at first and in the middle of our lineup. Both James and Rasheed are talented high school seniors who have the ability to make an immediate impact in our program as early as their freshman season."
Guilietti is a left-handed pitcher who posted a paltry 0.42 earned run average for Plainview-Old Bethpage JFK as a junior. He went 5-2 and had a strikeout-to-walk ratio of more than 6-to-1 (77 strikeouts and 12 walks). Opponents hit just .175 off him. Giulietti was an all-county selection and a Diamond Award Nominee as the best pitcher in Nassau County. He pitched for the gold medal winning Long Island team at last summer's Empire State Games.
Bility was an outfielder and pitcher for the High School of Telecommunication Arts and Technology in Brooklyn. He hit .548 as a junior and also went 6-1 with a 0.64 ERA on the mound. Bility was the starting center fielder and pitcher for the New York City team at last summer's Empire State Games.
Holley, a left-hander, played two years at Oakton Community College in Des Plaines, Ill. and will have two years of eligibility at Binghamton. Last spring, he hit .392 and was an all-conference and all-region selection at first base. Holley was also selected as the Rawlings Gold Glove NJCAA Division II National Defensive First Baseman of the Year. He collected 18 doubles, six triples, three home runs and 55 RBI.
