For an early preview of the 2009 Yarmouth-Dennis Red Sox, go to: http://www.ydredsox.org/roster.htm There are four returning members from the '08 Red Sox - Anthony Ranaudo (LSU; RHP), Josh Rutledge (Alabama; INF/OF), Tyler Waldron (Oregon State; RHP) and Andy Wilkins (Arkansas; 1B/DH). Joining Ranaudo will be Tiger teammates Austin Ross (RHP) and star catcher Micah Gibbs.
Georgia, Florida and Stanford are represented with two players from each of those schools.
Providing some local interest will be Derek Ingui who hails from Sterling, MA. and played at Wachusett Regional HS. Ingui is a sophomore at Franklin Pierce University in Rindge, NH. and is listed on the Red Sox roster as a third baseman/outfielder. It is unusual to see players from small New England schools on pre-season Cape League rosters. Players from the smaller local schools usually hook on with teams as temp players at the start of the season or they replace players who end up not coming to the Cape soon after the season begins.
Adding more local flavor, Mickey Wiswall (Boston College) will play for Y-D. Wiswall is a sophomore infielder/RHP from Stoneham, MA. who played his high school ball at Belmont Hill.
