2007 Oneonta Year in Review

Every year the Oneonta Tigers are handed a roster full of inexperienced professionals, with a few 'veterans' scattered about; and every year, Oneonta manages to field a competitive squad that can challenge in the Stedler Division. Who stood out for the O-Tigers during their march to another playoff birth? Check inside for the full recap.

This past season was a successful one for the Oneonta Tigers, as they went 44-32 to finish on top of the Stedler division of the New York-Penn League. The Tigers advanced to the playoffs, where they fell to eventual league champion Auburn in three games.

First basemen Christopher Carlson powered the Oneonta offense with ten home runs and 51 RBI, while hitting .291, and second basemen Justin Henry hit .340 to lead the Tigers in batting average. Casper Wells also put together a solid season, hitting .265 with nine home runs, 47 RBI and 11 triples, while Ron Bourquin was the only other Tiger to finish above the .300 mark with a batting average of .325.

Guillermo Moscoso established himself as the ace of the pitching staff by going 8-2 with a 2.37 ERA, while also leading the team with 68 strikeouts.

Noah Krol converted 17 saves and posted an ERA of 2.20 in the closer's role, while reliever Erik Crichton posted a 4-0 record and 1.56 ERA in 26 appearances.

For much of the team, the 2007 season was their first in professional baseball, and after an off season full of workouts, they'll work to improve on this year and move up in the farm system in hopes of being Whitecaps or Flying Tigers the next time they take the field.
