Miami's Fieger Headed to Falmouth

by Dave B. in


Sophomore infielder Brad Fieger from the University of Miami will be heading to Falmouth this summer.  Fieger, from Naples, FL., batted .531 in his senior year at Naples HS. Brad's father, Gene, says his son is "very excited about playing on the Cape." Based on his performance in his freshman season with the Hurricanes, I'm sure the folks in Falmouth are just as excited to have Brad in the Commodores black and maroon. At Miami in 2011, Fieger started 60 of the Canes 61 games, spending time at first and third base. He batted .280 with two homeruns and 29 RBI. A very impressive stat that jumped out at me is that Fieger struckout only 24 times in 244 plate appearances. 

An interesting note on the Miami website mentions that Gene Fieger is a golf professional who participated in the U.S. Open in 1993 and 1998. If Mr. Fieger makes it to the Cape to see his son play this summer and you happen to see him on a Cape golf course, you may want to be careful about issuing a friendly challenge!
