Amity Alumni Catcher Winkel Honored

Amity Athletics honored alumni baseball catcher Pat Winkel for his recognition as 2018 Gatorade Connecticut Baseball Player of the Year. Prior to the start of the varsity basketball game on Friday, January 4, Winkel rose a banner that will hang in the high school’s main gym. Among his accomplishments, according to Athletic Director Ernie Goodwin, was being named three times to the All SCC baseball team, 2017 SCC Tournament MVP, 2018 SCC Player of the Year and Amity Regional High School All-Time Hit Leader. Just before graduating in June, Winkel was drafted by the New York Yankees, but he held to his commitment to attend UConn, where he will play his first baseball season there with his older brother Chris, a senior, this spring.
