The St. Joseph’s College’s Brooklyn Campus baseball team enjoyed its best season in its six-year program history.
The Bears reached the United States Collegiate Athletic Association Small College World Series for the first time in program history after winning a season-record 20 games.
The team jumped out to an 8-0 regular season start en route to earning a World Series berth. But the Bears dropped contests to Briarcliffe College and Penn State Greater Allegheny at the World Series, played at Pullman Park in Butler, Pa.
St. Joseph’s team is comprised of 22 of the 25 players from the local N.Y.C. Catholic High School baseball league. Head coach Scott Losche – a Xaverian H.S., Bay Ridge, graduate himself – said he recruits in the league due to its competitive nature and the preparation the players receive before enrolling in college.
Below is a video that aired on Currents recapping the season and talking to a few players and Coach Losche about the Catholic league.
