Baseball: Ex-Mattituck pitcher to play for Ospreys

Former Mattituck High School star Cameron Burt has been assigned to play for the North Fork Ospreys in the Hamptons Collegiate Baseball League this coming summer. The 6-foot-4, 200-pound right-handed pitcher is a freshman at Queens College.

Two former Shoreham-Wading River High School players have also been placed on HCBL teams. Tyler Osik, a freshman infielder for Coker College (S.C.), will play for the Riverhead Tomcats. Jack Massa of Shoreham, a freshman catcher at Canisius College, will join the Westhampton Aviators.

Ospreys coach Bill Ianniciello and Tomcats coach Randy Caden are returning to their posts.

The league released the team rosters last week as committed players were assigned to its seven teams on eastern Long Island.

The defending champion Southampton Breakers are slated to bring back four players from their title-winning team.

The league will showcase players from dozens of colleges when it opens its eighth season in less than two months. More than 40 players are from Long Island.
