Ed Scott is one-of-a-kind
Associate AD Ed Scott helps broaden Binghamton brand
Typically Division I athletic administrators use the summer months to recharge their batteries, enjoy their vacation or hone their golf skills, but Ed Scott, Binghamton University’s associate director of athletics for student services, had little time for those luxuries. Instead, Scott logged thousands of miles flying all over the country, building the Binghamton brand.
In just two months, Scott was named to the Minority Opportunities Athletic Association (MOAA) Board of Directors, began his first year as a member of the NCAA Division I Baseball Selection Committee and was an adjunct lecturer at the University of Washington.
Former baseball standout Augliera wins title with Red Sox organization
Former Binghamton baseball ace Mike Augliera just completed a historic season for the Salem Red Sox, playing a key role in the team’s run to a Mills Cup Championship in the Class-A Advanced Carolina League.
Augliera, a fifth-round draft pick by Boston in 2012, won 10 games in his first season with Salem, including a big post-season win in Game 2 of the championship series against Potomac on Sept. 8. Continuing his penchant for stifling opposition in postseason play (in six postseason games during his Binghamton University career, Augliera went 3-1 with a 1.87 ERA), Augliera pitched a gem to beat Potomac. He went 6 2/3 scoreless innings and struck out a season-high seven. Over his final two starts down the stretch, Augliera fired 11 2/3 scoreless innings.
