Darien-New Canaan Senior Legion players prepare for college baseball



Following the conclusion of their American Senior Legion season Thursday, at least six Darien and New Canaan baseball players will move on to play baseball at the next level. Headlining the four-member New Canaan group is pitcher/first baseman Dan Rajkowski, who has committed to UConn.

Below is a full list of all known commitments:



P/1B Dan Rajkowski,UConn

After missing the 2013 high school season due to Tommy John surgery, the future Husky led the Rams both from the mound and clean-up spot.

OF Nick Cascione, Sacred Heart

The starting quarterback for the 2013 state champion New Canaan football team will head to Sacred Heart to play on the gridiron but could also make his way onto the diamond in the spring.

SS Matt Toth, Trinity

As steady as they come at the shortstop position, Toth heads north to Hartford, where he will become a member of the Trinity Bantam.

P JR Anderson, Amherst College

Anderson was a fixation near the top of the Rams starting rotation the last two high school seasons, and he continued to eat innings for Senior Legion this summer.


P Ames Murray, Elon

The former Blue Wave ace will travel the farthest of all of his summer teammates, as he spends the next four years  in central North Carolina, where he’ll have the chance to pitch for the Elon baseball team.

2B Brendan Donohue, Middlebury College

Donohue captained Darien to its best regular season finish since 1997 with excellent defense and a high on-base percentage, capabilities he’ll soon carry with him to western Vermont.
