PITTSFIELD -- It can be a cliché to describe baseball players as wanting to play until the uniform is ripped off their backs. One look at the resume of Pittsfield Colonials pitcher Trevor Marcotte shows that he might a guy who belies that cliché.

Marcotte, who was 2-3 with a 5.19 earned-run average going into Saturday’s games, began his professional career in 2001. In those 10 years, he has been all over the country.

"I love pitching. It’s that simple," Marcotte said.

The right-hander has been a stabilizing force in the Pittsfield rotation since arriving six starts ago.

"I wake up every day and I want to be on a mound," he said. "It’s not something I can help. It’s just something I want to do so I choose to be happy -- and I can still do it."

The 32-year-old Burlington, Vt., native has been pitching in independent leagues since his college career at the University of Vermont ended in 2001.

Marcotte has pitched in six different independent leagues since starting with the Albany-Colonie Diamond Dogs of the Northeast League in 2001.
