“We are all happy for Spencer,” Dulin said. “He left a [NCAA] D1 program
and came up here to get this opportunity and to get a ‘Boston’
education. Through hard work and dedication he thrived in the classroom
and got himself drafted. This is a great moment for Spencer, the
baseball program, and the college. We wish him the best of luck in
whatever decision he makes, I know he will represent Fisher College
Fisher now has had three players drafted by MLB teams in the last four
years. Mike Hashem was drafted by the Atlanta Braves in 2011; Chris
O’Hare was selected in 2013 by the Philadelphia Phillies.
"Fisher was a blessing for me,” Hermann said. “It helped me continue my
dream that I have been dreaming about since I was little. I was given a
chance to play in front of scouts and a chance to continue to play the
game I love."
