The Assumption College Department of Athletics has announced that Kyle Autilio, of Saugus, has been named to the 2018 Assumption College baseball team.

Autilio, Class of 2020, will compete during the Greyhounds’ spring season, which began in late February when the team traveled to the USA Baseball National Training Complex in Cary, North Carolina, for a four-game series, followed by eight games during their annual spring break trip to Florida.

“As a program, we are very excited about the 2018 season,” said fifth-year head baseball coach Mike Rocco. “Our returning players, have helped lead a team that has created an incredible atmosphere in the clubhouse. It is our hope that their guidance and mentoring will continue both on the field and in the classroom.”

Of its 45 scheduled games, Assumption will play 14 of them at home at Rocheleau Field. The Hounds posted a 10-17 record, 17-25 overall, in the Northeast-10 Conference in 2017 and were ranked fifth in the NE10 Conference Preseason Coach’s Poll for the upcoming season.
