Chad Adams ’12 (Ware, MA) signed a national letter of intent to play baseball at The College of St. Rose in the fall of 2012. Chad, an accomplished shortstop on The Williston Northampton School’s team, will be an asset to the college’s program.
Williston’s head baseball coach, Matthew Sawyer, said, “Chad is one of the best hitters I have coached, and I have no doubt he will be a feared hitter at the college level. He had a hit in every game but one in his sophomore year at Williston, and the better the pitching he faces, the better he is as a hitter. Chad is a line drive hitter with some power and he rarely strikes out. What separates him, though, from his peers is how well he knows the game.”
Mr. Sawyer pointed out that Chad is a cerebral player in every sense, with an innate love of the game. That probably comes from his great baseball bloodline: Chad’s grandfather, George Robidoux, was a legendary high school coach at Ware High School and his uncle, Billy Joe Robidoux, played major league baseball for the Brewers, the White Sox, and the Red Sox).
“I look forward to seeing what Chad will do this spring as a senior captain, and I have no doubt he will take his hitting prowess, his intensity, and his love for the game with him to St. Rose in the fall,” added Mr. Sawyer.
