Head coach Tim Corbin on Maldonado: “Nick is another young man that was capable of doing many things on the field. He is a very competitive young man who has a very good understanding of the game, which really helped him develop this fall on the mound. Nick comes right after the hitter with several pitches and does not back down. We really like his future with us.”
