Red Bank Catholic sophomore pitcher Shane Panzini has got two years to go, but no one would be surprised to see his name called in the 2021 MLB Amateur Draft. Panzini was on the mound in Lakewood for a complete game one-hit masterpiece against Manalapan in the Caseys 5-0 win in the Shore Conference championship. On Sunday night, the right-hander committed to play Division I baseball in the ACC for the Virginia Cavaliers. Panzini was 7-2 with a 0.66 ERA striking out 73 batters in 59 innings. With a fastball already clocked in the low 90s, the Caseys will have one of New Jersey’s most electric arms leading their rotation over the next two years. Coach Buddy Hausman has built a program that consistently turns out future college talent and the list of MLB draftees continues to grow. More importantly, the Caseys have fun and the positive vibes of a 23-6 season should carry over to 2020 and beyond.
