Canes North 2019 P/INF and La Plata HS (MD) product Dean Kirby committed to Alderson Broaddus University Head Coach Matt Yurish. During the Fall, Dean played under the guidance of Canes North 2019 Head Coach Mike Rubin. Rubin had this to say about Kirby, “Dean is a fierce competitor who has the potential to be a two-way player in college. On the mound, Dean is a toe-and-go pitcher. You cannot tell if he is up 10 or down 10, he just toes the rubber and competes. Dean pounds the strike-zone and attacks hitters. He has a very good curveball that he can throw in any count. In the infield Dean is just a gamer. He attacks the ball aggressively defensively and shows good range. At the plate Dean can hit the ball to all parts of the field and is a tough out every time he steps in the box. As a coach, you want a roster full of guys who compete like Dean.” We would like to congratulate the Kirby family on his commitment to Alderson Broaddus University.
