Baseball Team Honored Again by Bosox Club

For the second time in the last four seasons, Rhode Island was recognized as the Top-Ranked Division I Baseball Team in New England by the BoSox Club, the official booster club of the Boston Red Sox. 

Last season began tragically with the death of redshirt freshman pitcher Joey Ciancola. With “In Memory of Joe Joe” bands on their wrists and #5 dog tags around their necks, the Rhody baseball players attacked every task with a newfound sense of dedication and inspiration. The Rams put together a 33-25-1 season, finishing third in the Atlantic 10 with a 16-8 conference record. They also spent five weeks as the top-ranked team in New England, were twice named College Baseball Insider’s Northeast Region Team of the Week, and were an honorable mention for National Team of the Week in mid-April.

Nine different Rams earned postseason honors, highlighted by sophomore Jeff Roy, who became the sixth Ram ever to earn All-America honors. He also collected Atlantic 10 Player of the Year accolades, while Jeff Cammans ’12 was selected as the NCBWA District I Player of the Year—Rhode Island’s first player ever to earn the distinction.
