WHO HAD a better 2014 baseball campaign than Josh Ockimey? Several might be able to make compelling cases, but it seems the 6-2, 215-pound slugger for Ss. Neumann-Goretti holds the ultimate trump card. Earlier this month, Ockimey was drafted by, and later signed with, the Boston Red Sox in the fifth round (164th overall) of the Major League Baseball first-year player draft.
In addition, all the lefty did in Catholic League play was bat .500 (36-for-73) with 12 doubles, four home runs, 28 runs scored and 34 RBI, all while leading the Saints to their third PCL championship in 4 years. He is also our Player of the Year in connection with the 37th annual Daily News All-City Baseball Team.
