As a guy who was born and raised here in the Capital Region, it always does my heart well to see a local kid decide to stay in the area for college and make their marks in whatever sport they compete in. A perfect example of this would be Siena College baseball player Mike Fish - a Delmar native who graduated from Bethlehem High School and decided to "stay home" by attending Siena, just a short drive into Loudonville.

Fish received a great honor for his terrific season, so let's take a look back at the season-ending MAAC Baseball Awards Banquet from Wednesday, May 22nd:

A week and a half later, following a valiant effort in the MAAC Tournament on Memorial Day weekend, the newly-crowned MAAC Baseball Player of the Year joined me on the June 1st edition of "Cady's Corner" to discuss several items of business such as:

  • Why he chose to stay home and play at Siena, rather than go away for college
  • The wisdom provided by previous Siena players Dan Paolini (two-time MAAC Player of the Year) and Kevin Quaranto
  • What's next for Mike Fish, the baseball player

Check out the audio from last Saturday below, and don't forget to catch "Cady's Corner" every Saturday morning from 10 - 11 am on 104.5 "The Team" ESPN Radio!
