MCCC Pitcher James Page Signs National Letter of Intent with Saint Peter’s College


West Windsor, N.J. – High school athletic programs that are traditional powers always have players who tend to be overshadowed amid the many top players. After it happened to James Page at Cherry Hill West, the baseball pitcher made the most of his freshman year at Mercer County Community College.

Page used his improvement on the diamond and in the classroom to gain a scholarship from Saint Peter’s College. The sophomore right-hander has signed a National Letter of Intent with the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference school and will join MCCC teammate Russ Stupienski there in the fall of 2010.

“He’s tough,” MCCC head baseball coach Matt Wolski says of Page. “In the last year, he’s been hurt for a while. He’s battled through it. I’d go out to the mound and he’d say, ‘Coach, I’m not coming out of this game.’ I’d say, ‘Well, you’re not coming out.’”

At 6’4”, 210 pounds, Page, from Lawrenceville, N.J., is a powerful player. He made nine appearances during MCCC’s 2009 season, worked 28 2/3 innings, went 2-2 and finished with a 6.28 ERA.
