Westbrook Grad Flourishes at USM, Eyes Pro Contract

Westbrook High alum Anthony D'Alphonso hopes Major League Baseball comes calling after he's shown he can shred collegiate pitching at the University of Southern Maine:

D'Alfonso, you see, came to USM last season after
two years playing community college baseball. This is his final college season,
and his goal is to parlay his power to a future in pro baseball.
Those who see him daily say he's on his way. "His power is better than any I've ever
seen," said USM Coach Ed Flaherty. "I'm talking about legitimate home run
hitting power. At batting practice everyone stops to watch him hit."
