SPOTSWOOD, NJ - Baseball has been a big part of Roger Dantoni's time as a Charger. The Spotswood High School senior is a left-handed pitcher for the baseball team. He also plays first base and all the outfield positions. Dantoni was one of the captains for the spring season, which was recently canceled by the NJSIAA following New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy's announcement this week that Garden State schools would not be returning to the classrooms to complete the academic year.
Dantoni has been on the Honor Roll for all the marking periods this year. His favorite class was US History Two and his top teacher is English, Language Arts and Drama teacher Annie Raczko. Outside of school, the Spotswood native plays baseball for Langan Baseball in Manalapan.
Dantoni has so many memories of his time with the Chargers' baseball program. Being able to play ball with his best buddy Dom since kindergarten is something he will always cherish. He has taken part in some Autism Awareness baseball games with Spotswood High School and is very proud to have been able to help raise money for the cause. Dantoni has enjoyed taking part in the high school's Spirit Weeks each fall and being able to attend last year's prom with his girlfriend Lindsey was very special.
He is excited to be taking his pitching to the collegiate level. Dantoni will be attending Rutgers University-Newark in the fall. He will be one of the Scarlet Raiders pitchers. Dantoni plans on majoring in Business or Criminal Justice.
