Binghamton baseball lands two collegiate pitchers

VESTAL N.Y.--Binghamton University head baseball coach Tim Sinicki has extended his recruiting deep into the summer, signing collegiate pitchers Jarrod Rampey (Pittsford, N.Y./Pittsford Sutherland HS//Wofford College) and Nick Bogdanoff (San Mateo, Calif./Hillsdale HS/Skyline College) for the 2005 season. Each player will have two seasons of collegiate eligibility remaining.

Rampey, a 6-foot-1, 190-pound right-hander, won more games than any starter during his two years at Wofford College, which plays out of the Southern Conference. That conference was rated 16th (out of 31) in the country in overall strength - two spots above the America East - and sent two teams to the NCAA tournament. Rampey made 11 starts in 2004, and was second on the staff in both wins (4) and strikeouts (41). As a freshman, he won three games and carried a 5.36 earned run average.

In high school, Rampey was an all-state and league player of the year selection for Pittsford Sutherland High. As a senior, he recorded 121 strikeouts with just 21 walks in 77 innings. He also batted .548.

"Jarrod steps into our program with a wealth of talent and high-level Division I experience having pitched in the Southern Conference the last two seasons," Sinicki said. "He's a very competitive young man who will be a leading candidate for a spot in the conference rotation.

Bogdanoff, 6-foot-2, 175 pounds, is coming off an outstanding season for Skyline College in San Bruno, Calif. The right-handed sidearmer went 7-0 with a team-best six saves, helping lead the Trojans to a 29-7 record and Coast Conference North Division title. He struck out 35 and walked a team-low four batters, and had an earned run average of 3.40. At Skyline, Bogdanoff played alongside current BU pitcher David Lind and incoming recruit Aaron Davis.

"Nick is a tremendous addition to our pitching staff," Sinicki said. "With his sidearm delivery, Nick has excellent movement on his pitches and great command of the strike zone. We expect Nick to pitch big innings for us this coming spring."
