The Baltimore area has been very good to the Saint Joseph's University baseball program in recent years.
Players from Calvert Hall, Long Reach and Mount St. Joseph dot the Philadelphia school's roster, and when the 2008-09 season rolls around, the Hawks will add yet another Baltimore player to the mix.
Mount St. Joseph's Ryan Kemp, a 6-foot-3, 210-pound right-handed pitcher, committed to Saint Joseph's about two weeks ago. Kemp finished his junior season 6-3 with a 2.60 ERA. Although Kemp said he "could've done better" during his junior season, it was more than enough to convince the Saint Joseph's coaches of his potential.
"From what they told me, I think I'm going to start off my freshman year with a spot in the bullpen," Kemp said. "Depending how that goes, I could end up starting eventually."
