The New Rochelle Tigers

Welcome to the Online Home of the New Rochelle Tigers Baseball Club!

The New Rochelle Tigers were formerly known as the New Rochelle Rockies. The organization was originally established in 2001 but in 2007 the team officially became the New Rochelle Tigers in the WRWBL. The Tigers are comprised of players who have competed at all levels. The Tigers make their roots in New Rochelle where many of the players competed for private school power Iona Prep and Iona College.

The Tigers roster is comprised of collegiate players who have participated at the NCAA I, II & III level for schools including Columbia University, Fordham University, Concordia College, Iona College, RCC, WCC, Sacred Heart University, University of Rochester, St. Bonaventure, and Manhattanville College. Additionally, former Rockies/Tigers players have professional experience with Major League affiliated clubs including the Chicago White Sox and Detroit Tigers.

The Tigers play their home games at City Park in New Rochelle. The 2007 campaign will be the first season for the New Rochelle Tigers formerly known as the Rockies! The Tigers Baseball team consists of players who are willing to be committed and competitive. The Tigers play a fundamentally sound style of baseball with the emphasis on pitching and sound defense. The Tigers are not a team centered around power and look to play within their defined roles which will ultimately foster a team oriented atmosphere of players who desire to contribute and work hard to win on a consistent basis. If you are interested in playing with the Tigers this year please contact Joseph Mandile (Team GM).  Thank You for your interest and we hope to see you at the ballpark in 2008

Player to Watch: Rob Crosby

Outlook: The New Rochelle Tigers are hoping a new name brings success, following a disappointing 2006 season as the New Rochelle Rockies. The Tigers have endured three dismal seasons in a row and the tension and pressure to win is beginning to rear its ugly head. Late off-season injuries hurt the Rockies early in 2006 as they were not able to utilize their two top starters, Chris Marin and Craig Beatty, until mid May. As a result, some newcomers were thrust into the rotation early on without any time for adjustment In addition, it was the offense that dug the Rockies an early hole. The top four batters in the order, Joe Mandile, Jimmy DiMele, Rob Crosby, and Steve Sallustio all struggled to begin the season.

In 2007 the New Rochelle Tigers will again host a roster that will be among the youngest in the WRWBL. In 2006 pitching broke down early despite adding some fresh arms after losing Jeremy Knox who did not return, and Adam Josephart, who joined the Outlaws in 2006. Closer Steve Sallustio left the team early in the season and as a result left a major void in the pitching staff. The Rockies pulled together a young squad that played hard and had several late inning losses that could have had them realistically playing right around .500 ball had they had some sufficient pitching. In 2007, the roster will again be young but there is a developing nucleus of talent returning that should make some progress this year and presents them as a real interesting team this season.

The Tigers are strong up the middle and it starts with catcher Matt Welton. Welton has been with the team since its inception and is steady like a rock behind the dish. In the middle the team has two fine infielders in scrappy second baseman Mandile and shortstop DiMele. Both are catalysts for the offense and will need to have big years at the plate if the Tigers are going to contend. At the corners the Tigers will have Cliff Mahoney back at third base after recovering from shoulder surgery in 2006. Mahoney has power and is a big gap hitter. Mahoney and first baseman Crosby are two big bats that the Tigers are looking for to put up some big numbers batting in the middle of the order. Also returning is Nick Maranino, who was a late addition in 2006. Maranino will catch some games to give Welton a break and will also play the outfield. In 2006 Maranino had 21 plate appearances, hitting .286 with five extra bases including a homerun, triple, and three doubles. He should add to the offense’s firepower in 2007.

Brian Wallace will move to center in 2007 and be flanked by Maranino and Kevin Gallagher. Matt McAuley will DH and platoon when needed in the outfield. First base will have veteran Steve Doherty returning to platoon with Brad Trangucci when Crosby pitches.

Crosby, a former collegiate pitcher at Concordia, will return to the pitchers mound in 2007 to lead the staff. Crosby may be the team's best overall athlete and can cover several positions when not on the mound. Rounding out the staff behind Crosby is 2005 and 2006 WRWBL strikeout leader Chris Marin, a workhorse who logs a lot of quality innings. Marin’s availability for the opening of the season will be a big plus for the Tigers, provided he can stay healthy. Also returning to the hill is lefty Brad Trangucci and righties Craig Beatty and Jonas Borra, who are all big factors in the Tigers’ plans. Billy Zand returns to provide depth out of the bullpen with Mandile penciled in as the closer for now.

If this young core of players can remain consistent then the Tigers will be a team to contend with all summer long.
