New Hartford’s Owen signs letter of intent

Sports

Danny Owen’s baseball career is far from over.

The New Hartford pitcher signed a letter of intent on Thursday afternoon to play collegiately at The College of Saint Rose in Albany.

“I’ve been waiting for this day since I was a kid,” Owen said.  “I’m happy Saint Rose gave me the opportunity to go and play baseball there for the next four years.  Whether they need me to be a starter or a reliever, I just hope I can help them win games.”

Spartans head coach Kevin Green has no doubt Owen will succeed at the next level.

“Danny is a student of the game,” Green said.  “He’ll do whatever it takes for the betterment of the team.  He’s a high character kid, and a very classy young man so he’ll have a great four years there and they’re getting a very special young person.”

Before he makes his way there, Owen still has to finish up with the Spartans, who have stumbled out of the gate with a 1-7 start.
