Rodrigues is part of Moravian Senior Day

The Moravian College Department of Athletics & Recreation recently honored the five senior members of the Greyhounds’ baseball squad who missed out on their Senior Day after their 2020 season was canceled after 10 games by COVID-19.

The group registered 60 wins over their four seasons and helped the Hounds to a pair of Landmark Conference Tournament appearances, including a berth in the championship round in 2019.

Among the seniors honored was Palmerton High School graduate Kole Rodrigues. An infielder, Rodrigues appeared in two games this season and 15 games in his career, with three hits, four runs scored, two RBIs and a .353 on-base percentage.

Rodrigues is a three-time member of the Landmark Conference Spring Academic Honor Roll, and has twice made Moravian’s Dean’s List. He is the son of Kim and Kreg Rodrigues, and is majoring in accounting at Moravian.

“Kole is second to no one when it comes to being a teammate,” said Moravian baseball coach Paul Engelhardt. “It’s hard to show up every day, work hard, and be a positive influence on others. Kole not only worked harder than most, he did it for the love of this team, and the game.

“If you expect to win, you need kids like Kole that work harder than most and are willing to sacrifice it all for his friends and coaches. Nobody deserves more than Kole. He has earned it and will earn everything in his life. He is an outstanding young man, one that this school will be proud of moving forward.”
