There will be a Silver Lake connection on the Brockton Rox once again this summer.
Silver Lake High grad and Halifax native Michael Quigley is set to pitch for the Brockton Rox of the Futures Collegiate Baseball League this summer, the team announced this past weekend on social media.
The 2020 Silver Lake grad had a brief stint with the Rox at the end of the 2020 season — before he played college baseball. In it, he pitched two games and allowed two runs in four innings pitched. In his second appearance of the season, he pitched three scoreless innings.
After making six appearances for the Division 1 UMass Lowell baseball team as a freshman, Quigley has carved out a role as a regular in the team’s bullpen this season. As of the start of this week, he had already pitched in six of the team’s 16 games thus far. It was the third-most appearances by any pitcher on the team.
Quigley had a standout career at Silver Lake. He threw a no-hitter in his first career varsity start as a sophomore for the Lakers. And he was named Patriot League MVP his junior year. He was a four-year varsity player, but didn’t get to play his senior year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
