Another PG Showcases Success Story in DI.
Saturday, April 27, 2002
Chris Lambert has had some interesting turn of events since attending the Perfect Game Northeast Showcase late last August.
Chris had planned on attending Prep School in order to increase his chances of playing college or professional baseball. He had gone undrafted after his senior year at Manchester Memorial High School. Worse yet, Chris who was an honor student wasn't really offered any outstanding college scholarships. A good athlete, he spent most of his time in high school playing a position.
Lambert decided he would attend the PG Showcase held in the Cape Cod area in Wareham, MA. The rest is well...History. Lambert was rated by PG, the #1 prospect in the Wareham event that was loaded with talent. The reason...He threw live fastballs in the low 90s, topping at 94 mph. His breaking ball was equally impressive, if not more so. College coaches in attendance perked up quickly. National powers Clemson and LSU were among the many who made a play for the well built right-hander. Major League scouts were on their cell phones, trying to OK money to make an offer. Shortly there after, Boston College entered the picture and signed the star pitcher. B.C. had been Lambert's favorite school all along and he wasn't going to pass up the opportunity.

Baseball Splits Doubleheader With Conference Foe Villanova
Lambert moves 2002 record to 7-0.
April 20, 2002
PHILADELPHIA - The Boston College baseball team entered this weekend's critical BIG EAST series against Villanova with intentions of staying atop the conference standings. Following Saturday's doubleheader with the Wildcats at Veterans Stadium, the Eagles moved one step closer to achieving that goal despite a split with Villanova.
Boston College (22-14, 11-5 BIG EAST) defeated Villanova (23-16, 7-8 BIG EAST), 10-1, in game one, but dropped the second contest in dramatic fashion, 11-10. Despite splitting the doubleheader with the Wildcats, the Eagles pounded out 32 hits over the two games.
The story of game one was Boston College freshman sensation Chris Lambert. Lambert moved his overall record to a conference best 7-0 after helping lead the Eagles to a convincing win in the opener. He pitched six complete innings for head coach Pete Hughes, as he gave up only four hits, one run (earned), three walks and struck out eight Villanova batters. Junior Mike Stuart came in the game in the seventh inning to close the game out, as the only thing on his line was one base hit.
