The North Shore Navigators added a potential closer, re-signing RHP Mike Gallo, the Peabody, MA native who pitched at Milligan College in 2009. Gallo was part of the Navs’ impressive 2008 pitching staff, which amassed a team ERA of 2.52. Gallo contibuted by going 2-3 with a 2.45 ERA in eight appearances with four starts. Gallo pitched to contact but allowed a mere .234 opponent batting average one year ago. Gallo transferred from Lake City CC to pitch at Milligan, where Gallo was 5-2 with a 4.53 ERA.
The Navigators now have 13 players from Massachusetts on their roster and five players returning from the 2008 season (Gallo, Matt Costello, John Hill, Jason Markovitz, Chris Kowalski).
