FLEMINGTON, NJ - Collin Kiernan, a junior pitcher for Verona High School, was selected to play for the Northeast Region team in the 2016 Garden State Baseball Underclass Game that took place Wednesday at Diamond Nation in Flemington.

Players are selected based on how they project as NCAA Division 1 recruits.

On the mound for the Hillbillies, Kiernan struck out 135 this spring and batted .444. He committed to play for Rutgers after he graduates in 2017.
