West Windsor, N.J. – Mercer County Community College (MCCC) outfielder Domenic Boselli has helped the Vikings to a tremendous start to the 2019 season. Boselli led the Vikings to an 11-1 record and a top-20 ranking in the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) weekly poll.
Through 44 at bats, the sophomore has connected on 23 hits for an outstanding .523 batting average. His accuracy has seemingly rubbed off on his teammates, as the Vikings are batting a collective .367, good for third in the nation.
“We came into this season knowing Boselli would be a big contributor,” Head Coach Fred Carella said. “He hit eight home runs as a freshman, so he definitely has a reputation to uphold entering his second season.”
Adding to that reputation is the prestige of the Boselli name at Mercer. Domenic’s older brothers, Anthony and Robert, also played for the Vikings. Anthony played infield and outfield at Mercer before transferring to Fairfield University (CT), where he has continued his baseball career. Robert spent time as a catcher, first and third baseman at Mercer and later transferred to St. John’s University, where he was selected by the Cincinnati Reds in the 2018 Major League Baseball Draft.
This season, the youngest Boselli has also batted in 11 runs, connected on a pair of triples, and notched a home run in Mercer’s 19-3 win over Bucks County on March 12. Additionally, Boselli leads all of the Vikings’ outfielders in putouts with 12 on the season.
Boselli and the Vikings will return to action at home on Sunday, March 24 against ASA College (Brooklyn, NY).
