Gabay who dealt with some injuries last season, put a full season together this year for the Tampa Bay Rays organization and had a big year. Gabay started off in High A ball in Charlotte and did well filling in the roster working 3 games and holding a 1.35 ERA over 6.2 innings. Gabay was then sent to Bowling Green in the Midwest league to get settled in for the year and really took a big step in his development. Gabay worked 42.1 innings with 21 appearances and posted a 2-1 record with 1 save. Gabay gathered 39 strikeouts and only 7 walks over those 42.1 innings and posted a 0.99 WHIP. In a brief interview with Gabay he stated, "There were some people in the organization that believed in me and helped me land in a good spot last year and I wanted to make the most of that opportunity and prove I belong."</p> <p>"This is the type of season we knew Willie was capable of putting together,” said Head Baseball Coach Jason Rathbun. “He had some bad luck coming out of the gate (broken nose from a baseball) in his first full season and was great to see him healthy and compete for a full season. We hope he can build on this success and continue to make the climb towards his dream."</p> <p>Gabay was an All-American for the Generals in 2012 when he posted a 6-1 record with a 2.62 ERA over 58.1 innings with 91 strikeouts and 37 walks. Gabay stays in contact with his former coach and has also helped the program with donations to the program. "We are his baseball home. We believed in him and he took advantage of every opportunity here and he will never forget that, he is really a great young man that we are very proud of," added Rathbun.</p> Tue, 16 Dec 2014 00:00:00 -0500 http://www.herkimer.edu/explore/herkimer-news/v/904/baseball-alum-gabay-taking-steps-in-the-right-direction Herkimer College to Offer Instant Admit Days in January http://www.herkimer.edu/explore/herkimer-news/v/900/herkimer-college-to-offer-instant-admit-days-in-january <p><strong>December 15, 2014</strong></p><p>Herkimer College will offer four Instant Admit Days in January.
