In the summer for 2021, the Palm Beach Snowbirds were able to acquire the talents of Anthony Casciola. Anthony is currently continuing his athletic career at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte as a Covid Sophomore. Casciola was able to stand out in the CLPB this past summer as he posted a 0.61 ERA across 14.2 innings while also striking out 27 batters.
In a brief interview with the CLPB Director of Operations, Max Dakin, Casciola went on to share the following information on his experience with the CLPB
How would you rate your overall experience with the CLPB this past summer?
Casciola: The CLPB this past summer was a 10/10 experience. The coaches, teammates, and the CLPB staff were all awesome and I made a ton of friends along the way, who I still keep in touch with this day
How would you say the CLPB helped you get ready for this past fall at your school?
Casciola: Having actual game reps during summer ball plus working with Cressey sports is what prepared me most for this fall. I highly recommend signing up to work with Cressey because it helped me tremendously with flexibility and recovery, which I really needed to work on
How are you doing at your current school?
Casciola: Charlotte right now is a blessing and a privilege. I am surrounded by the hardest working players, coaches, and staff, I’ve ever met. Everyone shows up hours early, and stays hours late. If this isn’t a team that can make a run to Omaha then I don’t know what is. I’ve had a strong fall, with ups and downs of course, but I can’t wait to show up to the field every single day
Any advice for incoming CLPB players to help them succeed this upcoming summer?
Casciola: For advice, like I said earlier, utilize Cressey. Learn from your coaches. Ask questions. But most importantly, compete. If you want to succeed in this game, you have to go above and beyond, and seize each day
