The Fayetteville SwampDogs are pleased to announce the signing of Nate Monastra to the 2018 roster.
Monastra, a sophomore at Xavier University, has been a solid presence behind the plate for the Musketeers. After starting about half of Xavier's games in his freshman season, the right-handed hitting catcher from Lewis Center, Ohio stepped into the everyday starting role this year. At 6-2, 200 lbs., Monastra has parlayed his strong frame into a .280 batting average and 5 home runs along with a near-perfect .990 fielding percentage.
The SwampDogs look forward to Monastra joining the team this summer. The season begins in just a few weeks, with the first game set for Tuesday, May 29.
