Wilmington Little League Celebrates WHS Senior Dylan Bresnahan

first_imgWILMINGTON, MA — This is the sixth in a series of profiles celebrating the former Wilmington Little League’s seniors playing on the Wilmington High School baseball team. Little League’s motto is courage, character, and loyalty. Through playing with and against each other, these student athletes the embodiment of the motto.Dylan BresnahanEvery team needs a player like Dylan Bresnahan on its roster.  The player who keeps everyone lose, the team jokester. The one who’s easy going and funny, great in the dugout and on the field.   He is the prototypical tall lanky lefthander in the mold of former Red Sox Pitcher Bill Lee.  The word laid back adequately describes Dylan.  But, put him between the lines and he knows when to bear down and compete, smiling all the while.  He is his team’s gentle giant, no matter, baseball, football or hockey always ready with a quick one liner and a smile.Dylan began his WLL career in Rookie ball playing for the Thunder, coached by his dad John.  Coming out of a year of T-Ball in which he got to play with his twin sister Morgan, Dylan was ready for his first year on the small diamond.  Even at a young age his personality stood out. He not only loved to play the game, he loved having fun with his teammates. But his number one memory of that first year was getting to play for his dad.  He made his way through WLL playing A ball for the Pirates and Coach Pete Marino, and AA for the Brewers and Coach Derek Santini. He made the AA all-star team getting him ready for the jump to the Majors.Dylan was drafted by the A’s as an 11-year-old and played for Coach Mike Gracia.  Following his first season in the majors, Dylan was selected by the Twins and Coach Tom Sheehan. By getting a chance to play on two different teams, one of Dylan’s top memories from the Majors were the many great teammates played with.  He got to play with future WHS teammates Danny Gracia and Tommy Worob on the A’s and Ben Maynard on the Twins.  On field highlights included making the 12-year-old all-star team, winning the regular season and playoff championship with the A’s, and winning the regular season championship with the Twins.  Dylan has to be one of a few players in WLL history to win titles with two different teams.  He really enjoyed playing for Coach Mike Gracia in his first season in the Majors.Dylan also played Jimmy Fund in the summer, having a great time in a relaxed atmosphere getting to hang out with his friends and just playing ball.  He played on some fun teams while representing Wilmington at the Memorial Day tournaments in Woburn, at Wafer park. As with almost anything Dylan does he enjoyed playing alongside his friends and was probably one of the best teammates.He capped his WLL career as a member of the 2016 Northeast team, which was the first Wilmington team to win a Northeast League Division championship. His care free attitude helped settle the team down during tense moments. He also enjoyed the “fun times” he and his teammates had playing for Coach Boyle.This was Dylan’s first year playing Varsity Baseball for the Wildcats, having competed at the Freshman and JV level for the past 3 years. Dylan played four years for the WHS Hockey team and also played a couple of seasons of WHS Football, scoring a defensive touchdown as a Senior.Dylan is the son of Linda and John Bresnahan, twin brother of Sister Morgan and older brother of Sister Shaylan. His parents have enjoyed watching him play over the years with both family and friends.  In the fall he is planning on attending UMass Amherst and studying Business.

It will only shrink the space for independent journalism and expressing opinions,” the council added.The council leaders called on the government to hold talks with stakeholders before passing the law.last_img
