STORRS - "He wears number four in center field. He went to Avon Old Farms..." said UConn baseball coach Jim Penders.

He could be talking about George Springer, his former center fielder by way of Avon Old Farms who wore number four.

Springer has gone on to become a terrific player for the Houston Astros.

Jack Sundberg, a senior from Mansfield, currently wears number four and plays center field for UConn and the former AOF player is responsible for setting the table for Penders.

"He doesn't have George's superior ability, " said Peders. "But he brings that kind of energy and passion for the game."
