Dawgs Resign Ben Moxley for 2016!!
Little Falls, New York – The Mohawk Valley DiamondDawgs are pleased to announce they have resigned right-handed pitcher Ben Moxley for the 2016 season.
Moxley started six games on the mound for Dawgs in 2015 before being shut down for the summer due to injury. In his 6 starts on the mound he finished with a 3-1 record and an era of 2.96. Moxley’s best game for the Dawgs came when he took a no-hitter into the eighth inning while striking out 10 batters against Victor.
Ben is a native of Oneonta, New York where he starred on the Oneonta High School baseball team before making his way to Herkimer as a member of the Herkimer Generals. Following his junior college stint at Herkimer the 6’2 190 pound right-handed pitcher has been called on by SUNY Cortland to take the mound as a Red Dragon.
At Oneonta High School, Moxley was named 2012 New York State Class B Player of the Year, 1st Team All-State and 1st Team All-Southern Tier Athletic Conference. He compiled a career record of 22-6 with a 1.40 ERA, 10 shutouts and 4 saves.
As a Herkimer General, Moxley pitched 41 innings tallying a 5-1 record and a 2.41 ERA with 46 strikeouts. In the summer of 2014 Moxley continued to refine his repertoire by pitching in the New York State Collegiate Baseball League (NYCBL) for the Oneonta Outlaws where he started 5 games tossing 33 innings and posting a 5.18 ERA with 27 strikeouts.
“We look very happy to have Ben coming back. He was a major contributor during our 2015 season and we are excited to see what 2016 brings for him. He comes from a great high school program and two colleges in Herkimer and Cortland that are well-known for their baseball”, said Mohawk Valley DiamondDawgs Owner/President Travis Heiser.
Please join the Mohawk Valley DiamondDawgs in welcoming another ace in Ben Moxley back to the Dawgs family!
