The Anoka-Ramsey Community College Baseball team recently signed four student-athletes to letters of intent for the 2018 season.
Rudy Rodriguez (C - Greenfield, WI), Mike Noga (OF/P - Andover, MN), Colin Bernard (P/OF - Andover, MN), and Cole Benson (C - Hastings, MN) will join the Golden Rams beginning in the Fall of 2017.
Head Coach Jason Saulsbury had the following to say about each student-athlete:
"We are ecstatic to announce the signing of Rudy Rodriguez. He is an extremely gifted athlete and comes from a terrific family. He will help solidify our catcher position for the next two seasons. He is an outstanding player that brings an offensive threat to the catcher position, as well. Rudy will absolutely be one our leaders on the field and in the clubhouse. I have high expectations for Rudy and fully expect to see him thrive here at Anoka-Ramsey and in the MCAC."
"I am so excited to announce Mike Noga has signed with Anoka-Rams
ey. He is an amazing athlete that brings all five tools to the table. His game will translate extremely well to the college level. He is an offensive juggernaut, that also brings speed and a rocket arm to our lineup. Not only is he a solid defender in the outfield, but we are expecting him to pitch vital innings for us next year. Mike will absolutely do well here at Anoka-Ramsey and in the MCAC."
"I am thrilled to announce the signing of Colin Bernard. He comes to us as an established pitcher and outfielder. He brings a ton of talent, that we expect to match up well here in MCAC. We are expecting big things from him on the mound right out of the gates and he will battle for an outfield position. We love those two-way players that can contribute on the mound, as well as at the plate and on the field. I feel Colin will do extremely well here during his two years at Anoka-Ramsey."
"The signing of Cole Benson is absolutely awesome in nature. I knew we were a few schools he was looking at, but he believed in our program, the coaching staff, and the strong recruiting class we have coming in. He has played big time HS baseball at Hastings in the Metro East conference, and is no stranger to facing stiff competition. He is the additional piece we needed at the catcher position. He is a solid defender, with a strong arm, and will bring a good bat to the plate. Cole will do well out of the gates against MCAC competition and we expect him to be another leader on our team for the next two years."
