Lafayette’s Cory Spera (DC Grays ’12) was named to the Patriot League first team all-conference team by a vote of the conference coaches. Spera, a right-handed relief pitcher, is a local DC-area product who pitched on the 2012 inaugural season of the DC Grays in the Cal Ripken League. Spera was Lafayette’s most effective relief pitcher in 2014. A native of northern Virginia and a graduate of Hayfield High School in Alexandria, Spera pitched 23 2/3 innings out of the bullpen for Lafayette and compiled a 3-1 record with a 1.52 earned run average. In the Patriot League, Spera’s ERA was second among relievers who made at least 10 appearances out of the bullpen.
