LYNN, Mass. -- Adding to a strong Ivy League representation, the North Shore Navigators have added three Brown University players to their roster for the upcoming New England Collegiate Baseball League (NECBL) season.

One of Brown’s senior captains in 2021 and a former First Team All-Ivy outfielder, Joe Lomuscio will come to the North Shore prior to a graduate season at Stanford. The West Roxbury native hit .277 with three doubles, five RBI, six runs scored and a team-leading six stolen bases in 2020. He started every game in center field as a sophomore in 2019, leading the Bears with a .339 average and 32 runs scored. Lomuscio was a 2019 NECBL All-Star as a member of the Valley Blue Sox and has also played for the Cape Cod League’s Harwich Mariners and Futures League’s Brockton Rox during previous summers.

First baseman Ryan Marra is a rising Brown junior who recorded three hits, three runs scored and two doubles during his rookie year of 2020. The 6-foot-5 Commerce, Mich., native also stole a pair of bases and drew six walks to help his on-base percentage reach .429. Prior to his college debut down in Providence, Marra was a two-time all-district and all-region performer at Detroit Catholic Central High School.

A rising junior at Cal Poly, infielder Matthias Haas spent his freshman year of 2020 with the Bears. Haas played second base in his only appearance of the shortened season after joining Brown from Bishop O’Dowd High School in his hometown of Oakland, Calif., where he was a three-time all-league and two-time All-North Coast Sectional honoree hitting over .400 as a junior and senior.

The Navigators are excited to return to the NECBL for the 2021 season, which will begin on Friday, June 4 at Lynn's historic Fraser Field. Stay up to date on the latest Navs news by visiting nsnavs.com and following the team on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
