Duluth, Minn —  The Duluth Huskies are proud to announce the signing of three new players for the 2020 season, Ronnie Voacolo, Ryan Solimine, and Luke Seidel. As baseball season is right around the corner the Huskies are excited to fill the roster with very talented baseball players you won’t want to miss.

Ronnie Voacolo is a 6’3” right-handed pitcher from Hamilton, New Jersey and is a Junior at Southeastern University. He transferred from Mercer County Community College where he played his first two years of college ball. The game has always been in his life, “As a baby, I was dressed up in Yankees clothing and my dad and I would always play catch in the backyard growing up…” As his favorite part about the sport is the preparation before a game, “ I love the feeling of knowing that it is game day and that all the hard work we put in as a team will show on the field when it is game time.” Voacolo is nervous to play in a new atmosphere, but his excitement of meeting all his new teammates and fans out ways any nerves.   

Ryan Solimine is a 6’0” right-handed pitcher from Danbury, CT and is a Junior at Mitchell College where he has been the starting pitcher the last two years. He started playing the game at a young age and knew from the beginning he wanted to go to the Majors. His favorite part of the game is being on the mound, “I love my teammates wherever I go and I love the game so much.” He also describes himself as a very dedicated player and that is exactly what he plans on bringing to the Northwoods League and more specifically the Duluth Huskies this summer. 

Luke Seidel is a 5’11” second baseman and outfielder from Inverness, Illinois and is a Sophomore at Triton College. Just like the other two, baseball has always been apart of his life, “My dad played in the minor leagues for the Cubs so he got me into it and I’ve loved it ever since.” His favorite part of the game is making plays happen. Seidel isn’t nervous coming into the Northwoods League, in fact, he is excited to develop his game more and meet all his new teammates and fans. 

Huskies fans, all three of these men are ready to give you a great and exciting summer of baseball as we are less than 150 days away from baseball nights at the Wade.
