Orefice, Thorsen Named To MAAC All-Tournament Team
TRENTON, N.J. – Senior first baseman Mike Orefice (Wappingers Falls, N.Y.) and junior right-hander pitcher Chris Thorsen (Lititz, Pa.) of the Marist baseball team were named to the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) All-Tournament Team.
Orefice had a double in Marist’s opening-round game against Canisius, and delivered a two-run single that put the Red Foxes in the lead the following day against Siena.
Thorsen entered the opening-round game against Canisius in the seventh inning with runners on first and second and none out. He retired the lead runner at third base on a bunt, initiated a picked off/caught stealing for the second out, and had the final out recorded on a base hit with a runner being thrown out at the plate. He finished the game with 1.1 scoreless innings in his only tournament appearance.
Marist finished its season at 27-24-1, its fifth straight season with an overall record of at least .500.
