Eight Terps baseball players, including rising juniors K.J. Hockaday (John Carroll) and Matt Bosse (Calvert Hall), will leave the program, Maryland's student newspaper, The Diamondback, reported Wednesday, citing an individual with knowledge of the situation. Hockaday, a 2011 14th-round Orioles draft selection, played in 36 games this past season after starting all 56 his freshman year. In two years with the Terps, the third baseman had a combined .298 batting average with 98 total hits and 42 RBIs. Bosse, an outfielder, played in 54 total games in two years, but just in 17 games this past season. He hit a combined .231 with 25 hits and three home runs. The other players are outfielders Greg Olenski and Kyle Moore, left-handers Sam Carmack, Cam Hatch and Chase Tokunaga, and catcher Alex Ramsay. The individual said the players made their decisions because they did not fit into coach John Szefc's small-ball, up-tempo style, and their playing time was going to suffer as a result. The individual also said Hockaday's two-week suspension in late-April for a violation of team rules was a major factor in his decision to depart from the Terps.
