Gloucester Catholic rising senior Brett Tenuto, a star third baseman for the Rams as well as the Brooklawn American Legion team, has committed to Stony Brook on a baseball scholarship.

Tenuto said he was following in the footsteps of his sister Bernadette, a former Paul VI softball star who will be a senior at Stony Brook next year. Bernadette Tenuto led Stony Brook softball in hitting last season with a .338 average.

"It's kind of like a legacy," Brett Tenuto said. "She will be leaving when I'm going there but I'm going to try to fill her shoes and they are big shoes to fill."

Stony Brook baseball went 42-12 last season, including a 22-2 mark in regular-season play in the America East conference. The Seawolves' season included two victories over Michigan.

"I like everything about it," said Tenuto, who plans to major in business. "They have great academic support and they have beautiful facilities. They just built a new field."

Tenuto hit .477 last season with 29 RBIs, four triples and three home runs to help Gloucester Catholic to a 31-2 record and the Non-Public B state title. The Rams were No. 1 in The Inquirer Top 10 and finished in the Top 25 in a couple of national rankings.

Tenuto has been a top hitter for Brooklawn this summer. He cracked a grand slam Tuesday as the Brookers opened the District 3 tournament with a 18-4 victory over Clinton.
