A junior from Assumption College, Rocha returns to Nashua for his second season with the Silver Knights. Originally from Fall River, Massachusetts, the left-handed pitcher appeared in 19 games with four starts during the 2013 season, recording 48 strikeouts. He was named to the Worcester Area Baseball Second Team this season.
Rocha’s favorite player is current Phillies pitcher Cliff Lee, and he frequents Nashua’s Jeannotte’s Market for his pre-game meals. His favorite moment of his collegiate career so far was winning the FCBL championship with the Silver Knights in 2012.
When asked which actor would play him in a movie, Rocha would pick Mark Wahlberg for the job.
