GC's Alessandrine commits to Monmouth


Gloucester Catholic rising senior Robbie Alessandrine has committed to Monmouth University on a baseball scholarship.

Alessandrine is the starting shortstop for the Brooklawn American Legion team that is competing in the winner's bracket in the Mid-Atlantic Regional in Boyertown, Pa.

The Brookers are two victories away from a berth in the Legion World Series.

Alessandrine also started at shortstop for Gloucester Catholic. He batted .451 with a team-high 13 doubles for a team that went 31-2 and won the Non-Public B state title and was ranked as the No. 1 team in the state.

Alessandrine is the fifth player in GC's loaded class of 2012 to commit to a Division I program. The others are infielders Joe Brooks (East Carolina), John Brue (St. Joe's) and Brett Tenuto (Stony Brook) and outfielder Pat Kane (Old Dominion).
