PGCBL Spotlight: Matt Diorio

On Sunday evening Watertown Rams catcher Matt Diorio became the second player in the history of the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League to hit for the cycle, joining former Watertown catcher Larry Balkwill, who accomplished the same feat in 2011.

Diorio, a native of Staten Island, N.Y., is coming off of his freshman season for UCF where he hit .288 in 34 games, 27 of which were starts, for the Golden Knights.

In a 10-8 win over the Newark Pilots, Diorio got the two more difficult hits out of the way first, blasting a two-run home run in the first and recording his triple in the third. The double, the last of the four hits to finish the historical accomplishment, came last.

I knew I was a double short and after I got the hit it didn't register right away until I got to third when coach shook my hand and said congratulations, then it hit me and it felt real good,” Diorio told Justin Mattingly of the PGCBL.
