ALBANY SENATORS Manager Rob Bellizzi (5th season) will return 15 players from his 2018 squad, as they aim to win their third league championship in the Albany Twilight League in 2019.  The Senators finished the regular season last year in second place (15-9), and were the runner-up in the League's Championship Playoffs.     //     Showing no signs of slowing down, Twilight League veteran Fausto Franco (2018 All-Star 2nd baseman, 2016 All-Star outfielder) leads a strong nucleus of returning players, including 2018 All-Star outfielder Eric Mueller, 2017 League Batting Champion Alex Chandler, and 2014 Harold Finkle Award winner Scott Hladik.  Also returning are infielders Chase Crawford, Cullen Schultow (who holds the Senators record for two walk-off game winning hits in a single season), outfielder Alex Koshgarian, and catchers Tom Moore and Andrew Wollner.     //     The Senators pitching staff will be anchored by 2018 Pitcher of the Year and All-Star Caleb Gregg, who posted an 8-2 record with 57 strikeouts, and 2018 All-Star relief pitcher Joey Moore, 5-2 with 57 strikeouts and two saves.  Also returning will be starters Frankie Pizzo and Mike Hughes, and relievers Brian Stanczuk and Christian Garcia.     //     The Senators are pleased to welcome back to the team several former players:  infielder Joe Bender, and pitcher Tommy Miller, who is just completing an outstanding baseball career at Siena College.     //     Newcomers to the team for 2019 who are expected to provide an immediate impact include pitchers Nate Toms, Liam Krasney, and brothers Brooks & Carter Knapek, as well as position players Isaiah Peace, Brett Young, Garret Klahr, and Jon Montesanti.     //     Assisting Manger Rob Bellizzi will be coaches Michael Bellizzi, (who led the team to it's 2014 League Championship), Brent Smith, and first year assistant coach Zach Frese.     //     This year marks 22 years that the Albany Senators have been a member of the Albany Twilight League, the second longest tenured franchise in the league behind the Troy Haymakers.
