Players To Watch (CSI):  Glenn Glennerster shined in yesterday’s game against William Paterson.  Glennerester went 3-for-3 with three RBIs and a run which helped the Dolphins earn their first tie since 1988. Glennerster will want to have that same production here this afternoon in front of his home crowd. Nick Meola has played well in his first season in a Dolphins uniform.  Meola finished yesterday 1-for-4 with a run but continues to show progress in his game.
Players To Watch (MC):  The Valiants played in a doubleheader yesterday and picked up five hits in a 3-2 win over Eastern.  Joe Booker led the way, going 1-for-2 with two RBIs while receiving support from Luke Scoggins, who also went 1-for-2 with an RBI.
News & Notes: The Dolphins currently lead the series 31-17 against the Valiants but lost the most recent game last year.  After a season in which they finished 25-16 the Valiants are off to a slow start as they currently sit at just 3-7.  The Dolphins have started their season off on the right foot, picking up six wins thus far this season.  Staten Island would like to find their way back into the win column here this afternoon however, as they have not won in their last three outings.
