Right-hander Kenneth Rossano '56 of Kirkland House and Hemstead, N.Y., succeeds Bill Cleary as captain of the 1956 baseball team. Rossano was elected over the summer by the mail vote of the lettermen after Cleary, who had been elected captain following the final Yale game in June, left for army service. While in uniform Cleary--the nation's leading college hockey scorer last season--will be eligible to play for the United States Olympic Hockey Team.
Last spring Rossano was the top pitcher in the Greater Boston League, compiling a record of four victories and no defeats. He won his two games in the Eastern Intercollegiate League.
