College baseball

Three local players to captain Hens: Diaz Nardo (Cape Henlopen), Nick Spadafino (Dover) and Calvin Scott (St. Mark’s) have been named Delaware’s baseball captains for the 2018 season.

The three seniors return to a squad that won 34 games a season ago, advancing to the program’s first NCAA Regional since 2001. The Delaware trio is the first set of Delaware natives to be selected as captains since 1982 when Jim Sherman (William Penn) and Chuck Coker (Dover) served as captains.

“All three players have earned the respect of both their coaches and their teammates,” said Sherman, the Blue Hens’ coach. “We look forward to another great season of Blue Hens baseball.”

Spadafino returns for his senior season in Newark after posting a 7-3 record a season ago. The righthander pitched a team-best 76.2 innings last season and allowed just six earned runs over his final 21.2 innings.

Spadafino is now a two-time time captain.

A third-team All-CAA selection, Nardo started all 57 games for the Hens last season, hitting a team-high 16 doubles. The third baseman hit five home runs and drove in 35 runs.

Scott was named a third-team All-CAA selection, as he hit .332 last season with an on-base percentage of .436. The outfielder also hit 13 doubles and pair of triples.
