26 Titans in 26 Days Player #1

Adam Claire- Bryant University- Bat (R) Throw (R)- Infield- Litchfield, CT

We start with a local talent who made a big impression as a member of the Torrington Titans of the Atlantic Collegiate Baseball League in 2010.

Claire played in four regular season games for the Titans but made a big impact as the team came within a game of playing in the ACBL Championship game last August.

The former Cowboy star drove in two runs in his teams 4-3 comeback win over Staten Island in a play-in game then made a game saving play on a force-out at second that gave the Titans the Kaiser Division crown.

A steady influence at second or short, Claire has developed into a defensive standout who can also carry a clutch bat.
