Siena’s New Homerun King

Siena College’s Dan Paolini is Siena’s new homerun king.

Yesterday, the junior outfielder broke the school’s all-time homerun mark in just 2 1/2 years.

Paolini had three hits, including a record-breaking grand slam in the bottom of the 6th, as Siena rolled past UMass 9-4 in Loudonville.

Paolini now has 48 career home runs for Siena.  He broke Ryan Finn school record set back in 2002.  It took Paolini just 135 games, or two and a half years to do so.

Finn, who was inducted into the Siena Athletics Hall of Fame in February, needed 208 games to reach 47. Paolini is 20 home runs ahead of Anthony Giansanti’s ’10 third place total (28).

The grand slam yesterday also made him the MAAC’s all-time homerun leader.

Last year as a sophomore, the Connecticut native led the nation in homeruns per game.  He was named a 2nd-Team All-American – the first time Siena had a player named to an All-American team in any sport.

It’s likely that the All-American will leave school after this season and be a high-round pick in June’s MLB Draft.

Siena graduate John Lannan is currently in the Major Leagues – pitching for the Washington Nationals.
