Firebird To Miss Season

by Dave B. in

There was some bad news coming out of Durham, NC. today where it was announced that sophomore 1B/OF Chris Marconcini has a torn ACL and will miss the season. Marconcini suffered the injury in an intrasquad game on Sunday, just five days before the Blue Devils open the season against Texas. Marconcini batted .291 as a freshman and had a team-leading 4 homeruns and 39 RBI, earning Louisville Slugger Freshman All-America honors in the process. Before the injury, Marconcini was expected to play for the Orleans Firebirds this summer.
