Men’s Baseball, it's More Than A Game
Canisius Men’s Baseball, despite many restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, persevered and succeeded on the field, in the classroom, and in the community.
Over the past year, our team had a successful season with an overall 20-16-0 record. Vinny Chiarenza and Jake Burlingame were named to the All-MAAC First Team. Max Grant was named to the All-MAAC Second Team and All-Rookie Team. Carlin Dick and Matt Duffy were named to the All-Rookie Team as well.
In addition, our student-athletes were one of nineteen Canisius athletic teams to achieve an average GPA over 3.0. We are proud of their continued dedication to not only their sport but also to their academic studies as well. Despite busy schedules, our athletes got involved in a community outside of Canisius to help them become well-rounded leaders both on and off the field.
This past year our Griffs donated their time throughout Buffalo to help better and expand upon the Jesuit values which we as an institution practice and encourage daily. One of the pillars of Canisius, the Jesuit community, as well as our baseball program, is for our athletes to be men for and with others. Through all their hard work and dedication they are becoming strong Griffin Leaders and setting an example for teammates and classmates alike.
Your donation to Canisius Men’s Baseball More Than A Game Campaign will help provide our student-athletes with an enhanced collegiate and athletic experience that will allow them to excel at the sport they love while receiving a first-class Jesuit education.
A huge part of our success as a team is made possible by the generosity of our donors over the past year. Your continued support allows our program to harvest an environment that encourages growth for our Griffs in the classroom, on the field, and within our community. 100% of your gift will benefit the Canisius Baseball program!
