Former New England College Pitcher Shayne Audet Commits To Penn State Baseball

The Mike Gambino era has begun, folks.

Former Division III New England College right-handed pitcher Shayne Audet announced his commitment to Penn State baseball on Twitter Friday. He’ll arrive in Happy Valley with one year of eligibility remaining.

Audet boasts a 2.14 career ERA through three seasons of play and 147 innings pitched in Henniker, New Hampshire. The Springfield, Massachusetts, native has rostered with the Pilgrims since 2017 but only participated with the team in 2018, 2019, and 2022.

The pitcher was named the 2022 New England Collegiate Conference (NECC) Pitcher of the Year and to’s All-Region first team the same year. He also earned all-conference honors and was named the NECC Pitcher of the Week three times throughout the 2022 season.

Over the course of his career, Audet represented the North Shore Navigators and Westfield Starfires throughout collegiate summer leagues, too.

Audet will serve as the first commit to Gambino’s program following his hiring on July 3.

In the head coach’s introductory press conference on July 11, Gambino addressed a need to “round out [the] roster” through the transfer portal. Now, that the former Boston College coach has started building out his staff, the commitments will seemingly follow.
