Tim Boyce ’10 was selected by the Seattle Mariners in the 44th round of the 2010 MLB Draft. Boyce became the 10th Rhody player drafted since 2003. The 2010 Atlantic 10 Pitcher of the Year, Boyce turned in the nation’s longest scoreless streak this season as he pitched 37.2 consecutive innings without yielding a run from April 30 to May 26. During that span, he turned in three straight complete-game shutouts while holding opponents to a .109 batting average. A two-time National Pitcher of the Week and three-time Atlantic 10 Pitcher of the Week, he posted a 6-3 record this season, fanning 90 batters over 101.1 innings pitched. In league play, he held opponents to a .199 batting average and led URI to an opening-round win over La Salle in the Atlantic 10 Championship. There, he struck out six batters over seven innings en route to landing a spot on the All-Championship Team. Boyce finished his collegiate career with 11 saves and an overall record of 17-6 (.739).

Senior Tom Coulombe was named a Second Team All-Northeast Region selection by the American Baseball Coaches Association. He was one of six outfielders from the Northeast to earn the honor. Coulombe finished his junior campaign with a team-best .418 batting average, 41 runs batted in, 28 multiple-hit games and 23 stolen bases. He also recorded 10 multiple RBI games and set a new single-season record at URI with a team-leading 87 hits. An Atlantic 10 Second Team selection, Coulombe also earned A-10 All-Championship honors for the second-straight year as he batted .533 (8-for-15) and got on base at least twice in each URI’s four tournament games.

Kyle Borden and Dan Rossignol were named to the 2010 New England Intercollegiate Baseball Association All-New England team. Borden landed a spot on the First Team while Rossignol was selected to the Second Team. An Atlantic 10 Honorable Mention, Borden batted .333 in his first season with the Rams, recording 39 RBI, 36 runs, 11 doubles and five home runs. He turned in 20 multiple-hit games and drove in multiple runs in 11 separate contests. Rossignol ended the regular season leading the Atlantic 10 with an 8-2 (.800) record. Five of his eight victories came from relief appearances while he fell just one inning shy of picking up his ninth win of the year in a rain-shortened start vs. La Salle at the A-10 Championship. Rossignol ended his four-year career at Rhode Island with a 14-6 record and two saves over 67 career appearances.

    Michael—URI Baseball Head Coach Jim Foster suggests that you email the recruiting coordinator, Coach Steve Breitbach, at, and he will follow up. He also suggests checking for all upcoming high school clinics. Finally, he said you should go to the Rhody Baseball Web site ( and go to the Prospective Student Athletes link (under GORHODY SIDELINES) to fill out a recruiting questionnaire.
