Seaford Makes it to the Majors

Jan. 8, 2016
By MAXWELL TRINK

As September baseball begins, Seaford native Sean Nolin has another shot to prove he deserves to be in the majors.

Nolin was a Seaford High School Graduate from the class of 2008 and a former Seaford Little Leaguer and Viking.
Nolin was called up on September 4th instead of former CY Young award winner, Barry Zito for the A’s roster expansion.

Before this year, Nolin had two games in the
Majors for the Toronto Blue Jays going 0-1 with an overall ERA of 27.00 between two years, 2013-2014.

On November 28, 2014, Nolin was involved in one of the largest moves in the MLB offseason.  Nolin was traded from the Blue Jays to the Oakland Athletics with third baseman Brett Lawrie, pitcher Kendall Graveman and shortstop Franklin Barreto, for third baseman Josh
Donaldson.

Even though Nolin didn’t pitch well for the Blue Jays, he hopes to change his fortunes as a starter for the Oakland
A’s.

The future is definitely bright for Nolin as he gets to be a part of a team with an excellent pitching staff, such as Sonny Gray and Jesse Chavez.

“It’s something I’ve always dreamt about as a kid,” Nolin told the Associated Press. Nolin continued, “now I feel that things are lining up.”

As this Southpaw deals, Seaford watches and hopes that Nolin does well and proves he belongs on the big stage.
