Shayne Fontana Selected in 23rd Round by the Baltimore Orioles and Tyler Poulin Selected in 29th Round by the Arizona Diamondbacks.

RANDOLPH, NJ – The County College of Morris (CCM) Athletics Department is beaming with the announcement that two alumni who played on the Titans baseball team were selected in the 2019 Major League Baseball (MLB) Draft.  Both players graduated CCM in 2017.

Shayne Fontana, of Lebanon, who played center field with the Titans was selected in the 23th round by the Baltimore Orioles. Fontana, who received an associate degree in Criminal Justice at CCM, recently graduated from Lynn University.

Right-handed pitcher Tyler Poulin, of Randolph, was selected in the 29th round by the Arizona Diamondbacks. Poulin received his associate degree in Business Administration from CCM and then transferred and graduated with a BA from Quinnipiac University.

“The selections of Shayne Fontana and Tyler Poulin in the 2019 MLB Draft are tremendous accomplishments for these student-athletes, their families and our program,” said Brian Eberly, CCM head baseball coach and 2019 Coach of the Year for the NJCAA Division II Baseball All Region XIX Selections.  “It is further evidence of CCM attracting and developing top-notch talent.”

The CCM baseball team has a proud history, producing over 50 professional players and three trips to the NJCAA World Series. CCM has produced more MLB players than any other New Jersey junior college.  During the 2017 season, the CCM Titan’s baseball team went 41-8, winning a Garden State Athletic Conference title and finished the year ranked 8th in the nation. 

“Poulin was a dominant presence on the mound for us and helped lead our team to a 41-8 record in 2017,” remarks Eberly.  “Fontana is a tremendous athlete. Not only did he continue to grow as an athlete, but he worked very hard to turn around his academic career. I am very proud of both of these young men.”
