College Corner East Edition

Corey Keane, from Tolland, has been named to the All-Little East Conference baseball team for 2015. Keane becomes the program’s first first-team All-Conference second baseman in 12 years. A third-year varsity letter winner at Eastern after transferring in in 2013, Keane started all 40 games for Eastern in 2015. He started 32 games at second base and seven at first base and spent time batting in each of the top five spots in the order, primarily at No. 5. Keane batted .302, shared the team lead with 20 extra-base hits – including a team-high 13 doubles – equaled his 2014 total of 48 hits, and was second on the team with 79 assists. His 16-game hitting streak beginning in early April and lasting three weeks was the longest by an Eastern player this year. Keane’s final hit in his final at-bat was the 100th of his Eastern career.
