Huge CONGRATS to Nokona 2022 INF Lawrence Tang (Hopkinton) and Belmont Hill High School on his commitment to continue his academic and baseball career at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology! A 9 year veteran in our program, Lawrence is exactly what we value in a player. A young man with an incredible work ethic, open to taking instruction, and willing to do everything he can to maximize his potential – just a wonderful guy. We have been so fortunate to have Lawrence in our program since he was just 9 years old and see his development. Always an excellent hitter with a strong arm, he was a staple in our weight room and cages as he tried to reach his goal of playing college baseball. He is one of the hardest workers we have seen. And on the other end, Lawrence has been exceptional in the classroom – and truly is in a class by himself. But beyond his athletic and academic accolades is who he is as a young man. He is engaging, a leader, helps younger players, a coach’s favorite, an example to all. He checks ALL of the boxes. We would be lucky if we had even 1 kid like Lawrence Tang in our program each year. That’s how special of a young man he is. We are SO thrilled for him to reach his goal to end up at MIT – it is WELL deserved. Congrats to Lawrence and his family. We are so proud!!!
