Walter on Aiello
"Johnny has made great strides since last year's freshman campaign. Coming off a good summer on the Cape, he moves to third base for the Deacs. He has also put down the left-handed bat to focus on his right-handed swing. He will be a plus defender for us and provide power in the middle of our order."
