#42 Justyn-Henry Malloy
Quote Corbin Quote: Justyn is a very enthusiastic kid with a great personality. He is a skilled infielder who will continue to mature at several different positions. He spent the majority of his time at the third base position and will be used as an option at either corner. He put together some good at bats over the fall and was successful in the Black and Gold series. He will continue to progress in his game and will be a very good player in our program.
