Baseball team signs in-state catcher

The Binghamton baseball team has received a national letter of intent from catcher Pat Haughie (St. James, N.Y.), a high school senior from Smithtown High School. He will join the Bearcats for the 2003-04 academic year.

In his junior year at Smithtown, Haughie batted .352 with 18 RBI. He was named an academic all-league selection. This past summer, he was the starting catcher for the highly-regarded Long Island Bulls and batted .381.

“Pat is one of the best catch-throw kids in the state and is very athletic behind the plate,” Binghamton head coach Tim Sinicki said. “He has outstanding bat speed and projects out to be a very good Division I hitter. Pat also has the type of leadership skills we are looking for from the catcher position.”

Haughie is the third high school senior to sign with Binghamton this fall. He joins second baseman Matt Simek (Vestal, NY.) and pitcher Mike Van Gorder (Vestal, N.Y.), both of whom signed last week.
