canton-slideshow_1__largeThe SUNY Canton baseball team enters the 2014 season coming off a 13-23 season last year. The Roos are led by senior standout Jordan Hunneyman (Redwood, NY). The first baseman, pitcher and outfielder hit .298 from the plate with 28 hits, four doubles, a triple and home run in 2013. He knocked in 21 runs on the season and sported a .424 on-base percentage. Hunneyman is expected to break the career hits, home runs and RBI records for SUNY Canton this season.
Kevin Hill (Deerfield Beach, FL) will give a big lift to the Roo offense in his second season. The sophomore had a stellar rookie season batting .297 from the plate. He produced 19 hits, three doubles and 10 RBIs with a team-best .446 on-base percentage.
The Roos return 2013 USCAA All-American Alex LaFountain (Keesville, NY) on the hill. The senior went 4-2 in 11 appearances during his junior season and led the team with 39 strikeouts. LaFountain posted a 3.73 earned-run average in 31.1 innings and held opposing hitters to a .202 batting average.
With a blend of returning and experience and a plethora of incoming talent in a strong recruiting class Head Coach Joe Carbone looks to see tremendous improvement in the 2014 season.
“We train to win because losing is not an option for us.” – Joe Carbone, Head Coach
