Boston College Baseball Head Coach Mike Gambino has started a new tradition at The Heights. Each season, a player who has battled adversity and represents the best qualities of BC Baseball will wear No. 8 in honor of former player Peter “Sonny” Nictakis. Sonny was a two-time captain for the Eagles in 1998-99 and lost his courageous battle with Hodgkin’s disease in the summer of 2000. His No. 8 has not been worn since the 1999 season and Gambino tabbed OF Mike Sudol to be the first to don the number during the 2011 campaign. “Bringing Sonny’s No. 8 back is something that is very important to me and one of the first things I wanted to do as head coach,” Gambino said. “Wearing his number will be the biggest honor a player can receive in our program. It will be given to one player each year - the one that best shows the qualities that made Sonny such a great teammate, great leader and great friend. “When we think about what we want in this program and the type of kids we want to represent BC baseball, Sonny was the embodiment of all those qualities: hard worker, great teammate, leader, unselfish, committed to being great at everything he did.” Gamnbino added. “He handled adversity, never complained and held himself and everyone around him to an incredibly high standard. Sonny didn’t care whether or not anyone liked him. He had true confidence in himself because of the morals and values instilled in him by his family and he had the integrity to always do the right thing. And that’s part of why everyone loved him.” Sonny was a two-time captain for the Eagles in 1998 and 1999. He played in 29 games and had one start, batting .321 in 28 plate appearances. But it was his intangibles off the field that garnered so much love, respect and admiration. His two-year captaincy proved what a leader he was. He earned the 1998 Jeff Keith Athletic Leadership Award and the 1996-97 baseball team leadership award. Sonny also served as the president of the Student Athlete Advisory Committee. Sonny graduated from BC in 1999 with a double major in English and theology. After graduation, he took a job with the Boston Red Sox.

In the summer of 2000, Sonny lost his courageous seven-and-a-half year battle with Hodgkin’s disease. “To truly understand what Sonny meant to the team, you would have to see the reaction of the dugout,” Gambino said back in 2000. “When, after a week in the hospital, he singled up the middle against the Red Sox and the whole team came out of the dugout and gave him a standing ovation when he returned to the bench. Or to see his teammates mob him when he came off the field after getting a single in his last college at-bat. You’ll never find a better friend, a better teammate or better captain.” His spirit lives on in the BC baseball community with the Sonny Nictakis Fall World Series that is played every year. And now his beloved No. 8 will return to the field. Sudol is a fifth-year senior who has faced a litany of injuries during his time at The Heights. The Franklin, N.J. product has endured four knee surgeries, a micro fracture, a bone graft and complete reconstruction of his meniscus. Sudol missed his freshman season and his second year was cut short. He has been an important contributor the last two seasons despite playing through pain most of the time. He has played in 94 games with 69 starts and is batting .286 with 40 runs, 55 RBI, 23 doubles and 11 home runs. “Knowing how much this means to Coach Gambino and the BC baseball family, I am honored to wear the No. 8,” Sudol said. “I spoke with Coach Maloney and to Sonny’s brother, Bill, and I understand what a great person Sonny was and how much he still means to everybody who knew him. It is truly a great honor and I will wear the number proudly.” “Mike Sudol is a kid who has handled adversity throughout his career,” Gambino said. “Despite all of that, the first thing he said to me in our first conversation was, ‘Coach, I don’t care what I have to do. I just want the opportunity to be a part of this program for one more spring and do whatever I can to help this club win.’ Since then he has backed up those words. He’s one of the hardest workers I’ve been around as well as one of the most unselfish teammates I’ve seen. That is why his teammates respect him the way they do. And that is why he’ll wear No. 8 this year.”

ACADEMIC SUCCESS Once again in 2011, US News & World Report ranked Boston College among the Top 40 Universities in America. BC is one of six Atlantic Coast Conference institutions ranked in the top 40, joining Duke, Georgia Tech, North Carolina, Virginia and Wake Forest.

RED SOX Boston College is one of the few programs in the country to play a Major League Baseball squad. Every season since 1993, the Eagles and Red Sox have met on the diamond at Boston’s spring training facility in Fort Myers, Fla. This year, the two teams will square off on February 26.

EDDIE PELLAGRINI Eddie Pellagrini (second from left) coached Boston College for 30 seasons from 1957-88. He grew up in nearby Roxbury and played 11 seasons in the majors, spending time with the Red Sox, St. Louis Browns, Cincinnati Reds, and Pittsburgh Pirates. He led BC to three appearances in the College World Series.World Series.

BEANPOT Boston College, Northeastern, and Harvard took part in the first Beanpot in 1990 and the tradition has continued since with UMass joining in 1998. The Eagles own a 27-12-1 record in the annual tournament which is the best among the four participants. BC has won nine Beanpot titles with its latest coming in 2010.

POSTSEASON PLAY Boston College stormed onto the national scene in 2009 and advanced to its first ever ACC Championship and its first NCAA Tournament since 1967. The Eagles went 2-1 in the ACC Championship to ensure their berth into the NCAA Tournament where they were selected as the No. 3 seed in the Austin Regional. BC went 1-2 in the regional with a stunning ninth inning comeback against second-seeded Texas State. It also battled No. 1 overall seed Texas in the longest game in NCAA history. It took 25 innings and over seven hours, but the Longhorns won, 3-2. The Eagles advanced to the ACC Championship again in 2010 but fell short of their second-straight bid to the NCAA Tournament.

EDDIE PELLAGRINI DIAMOND AT SHEA FIELD Nestled on a corner of the Boston College campus with a sweeping view of the Boston skyline, the Eddie Pellagrini Diamond at Shea Field is the home of the baseball team. Shea Field is named after Commander John Shea U.S.N., who played football at Boston College from 1916-17. Shea passed away on September 15, 1942 when the naval carrier “Wasp” was torpedoed during the Guadal Canal campaign. The diamond was formally dedicated in a ceremony preceding the Boston College-Connecticut game on May 3, 1997. Pellagrini was Boston College’s baseball coach for 31 years, during which time he accumulated 359 victories and coached three Boston College World Series teams. Shea Field is the new home of the Peter “Sonny” Nictakis Fall World Series, held for the first time in the fall of 2001. Nictakis, who played baseball at Boston College from 1995-99, passed away in the summer of 2000 after a seven-

and-a-half year battle with Hodgkin’s disease. The intra-squad “Maroon and Gold” scrimmage wraps up fall practice. In the spring, with the Chestnut Hill Reservoir bordering the field along St. Thomas More Drive, the Eagles play their home games at Shea Field. With the students coming out to catch a doubleheader or split an afternoon between baseball and softball games, BC enjoys a strong fan base. Local residents often fill the stands and line the garage ramp to catch the baseball team take the field against some of the nation’s best competition. This year fans will have the opportunity to see 21 home games at Shea Field, including three-game sets against perennial national powerhouses Clemson, Miami and Virginia.

One of the most exciting things about playing for Boston College is the opportunity to play the seven-time World Champion Boston Red Sox at their spring training facility in Fort Myers, Florida. The two teams will meet for the 21st time on February 26, 2011. The teams have met for the past 18 years and also played in 1916 and 1933. The Eagles had their best chances to win in 1999 and 2002, when they lost by just one run. Last year, the Eagles lost by five runs, the closest margin since 2003, in a game televised by the New England Sports Network.

2011 SEASON OUTLOOK The 2011 Boston College baseball season brings with it a new set of faces in the Eagles’ dugout as first-year head coach Mike Gambino takes the reins of his alma mater’s club. The 2000 BC graduate took his first head coaching job after a successful stint as an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator at Virginia Tech. Gambino brought in one of the top pitching coaches in the country in Scott Friedholm who left his post at Navy to return to New England. In addition, he hired Greg Sullivan who had spent four seasons as the program’s first head coach at nearby Newbury. Steve Englert remains on the staff for his 10th season. With the new staff comes a new set of philosophies that instills a sense of excitement with the student-athletes and the fans around the program. The last two seasons, BC has ranked in the top 25 in sacrifice bunts - moving people up 90 feet when it had a chance. Not this season.

Anthony Melchionda

“The analogy I always use is that sacrifice bunting is like CPR if you’re a lifeguard,” Gambino said. “You need to be really, really good at it and hope you never use it. I don’t want to give up outs. Outs are precious. They’re hard to come by and when you are on defense they are hard to get so I don’t want to give them up.

“If there is something we’re learning that’s going to help us win games, those are lessons that will help them be successful in the future,” Gambino said. “They have to learn to prepare and learn how to be really good at doing the things nobody else wants to do. It’s important for me to help these guys reach their potential on the field and off. If you’re only doing one of them then it’s not enough. They have to do both. We see how important that is with our alumni and how successful they are both in baseball and in the job market.”

We’ll get some guys moving on the base paths. We’ll have some guys with green lights. We’ll hit and run a little bit, but it’s not going to be a station-to-station offense. We are going to put an emphasis on taking extra bases when we can and we are going to be good at going from first to third every opportunity we get. If you play for a run, then maybe you get a run. I want to get three, four and five and you don’t do that by giving up outs.” The Eagles have to replace five players lost to the draft after a program-record six were drafted last year. BC has to replace its No. 1 starter in Pat Dean (5-2, 4.75) and top reliever Kevin Moran (8-5, 7.92), but it is the offense that loses the biggest bulk. John Spatola and Mickey Wiswall combined to hit 36 homers and drive in 122 runs while both batted over .300. The man who was on base and scored 55 times because of them was leadoff hitter Robbie Anston, who batted .324 with 18 steals. “You can’t replace that type of offense,” Gambino said. “You’re not going to get three guys to replace those three guys straight up. We’re going to have to do it from top to bottom in the order. We have a chance to have a balanced lineup. I don’t think we’re going to have one guy in the middle of our lineup that’s going to hit 25 home runs. We have a bunch of guys who are tough outs and there won’t be a huge break in the bottom of our order.” As a graduate of The Heights, one of the most important pieces that Gambino is instilling in his squad is the BC experience outside of baseball.

STARTING PITCHERS The Eagles have a pair of very experienced starting arms at the top of the weekend rotation in senior RHP John Leonard and junior RHP Mike Dennhardt. The coaches are hoping that their previous experience on an ACC staff will help them break through this year. “We saw their numbers, but they’ve shown this fall that those don’t equate to who they are,” Friedholm said. “I think they’re better than their numbers and we’re going to need them to be better than them. Leonard and Dennhardt have experience and maybe that will help push them over the edge this year. We need those two to be really, really special for us and I think they are ready.” With the loss of junior RHP Taylor Lasko to Tommy John surgery, the Eagles needed a third starter for the weekend and senior LHP Nate Bayuk has pitched himself into that position. Bayuk was one of the top relievers for BC last season before an injury derailed his season. “Bayuk is the wild card this year,” Friedholm said. “He has proven this fall and winter that he can get people out, not just left-handers. He’s going to be right there in the mix.” Freshman RHP Eric Stevens has impressed since arriving on campus and has set himself up to be a midweek starter. “We don’t know what Eric Stevens is going to be yet,” Friedholm said. “He could be a midweek guy. He could be a weekend guy out of the bullpen. If there is an injury, he could be starting on weekends. He has the opportunity to be pretty good. He needs to believe in himself and his stuff; that he can pitch at this level.” The Eagles can also bank on the starting experience of senior RHP Dane Clemens, who went 2-2 in eight starts a year ago. Senior RHP Dave Laufer, sophomore RHP Hunter Gordon and freshman LHP Steve Green are other options to start the non-conference contests.

RELIEF PITCHERS The coaching staff knows exactly what they have in junior RHP Matt Brazis who serves as the closer. He recorded nine saves, which ranked third in the ACC and had a 4.73 ERA. “We need Brazis to be Brazis again,” Friedholm said. “He’s the guy whose numbers we need to repeat. He needs to be that guy again.”

“Brazis will be our go-to guy,” Gambino added. “It’s just a matter of getting to him. If our staff doesn’t do a good enough job to get it to him, we will go to him in the seventh. He has the stuff and the mentality to be one of the top closers in the ACC.”


2011 SEASON OUTLOOK SECOND BASE Senior Matt Hamlet returns to second base and is one of the best fielders in the country. He has committed just three errors in the last two seasons and has a .991 fielding percentage during that span. He also batted .291 with 13 doubles and 36 RBI while leading the nation with 20 sacrifice bunts last year. Sophomore Philip Miclat played in 21 games with six starts and spent some time at second base as well as left field. Freshmen Matt Demitroff and John Hennessy are newcomers that add depth all around the infield.

SHORTSTOP Junior Brad Zapenas returns for his third season starting at shortstop and paired with Hamlet, make one of the best middle infields in the country. Garret Smith There is a litany of options for BC to go to in relief. Senior RHP Geoff Oxley is working his way back to 100 percent after undergoing Tommy John surgery last May. He is back for his fifth year and is a team captain who is relied upon by his teammates. “He has worked so hard because he wanted to be a part of this team,” Friedholm said. “If he is healthy, he will be in the game because our kids feed off of him.” Junior RHP Kyle Prohovich and Gordon are two of the best options in the pen entering the season. Prohovich is a big presence on the mound and has improved greatly since last season. Gordon made 24 appearances out of the bullpen as a freshman in 2010. Laufer has the second-most career appearances on the team after the 22 he made last season. The coaching staff thinks highly of redshirt freshman RHP Matt Alvarez’s stuff but he has yet to pitch in a game at the collegiate level. BC also has sophomore RHP Jay Jeannotte while Green is the only leftie in the pen.

CATCHERS Senior captain Garret Smith will return for his second season behind the plate after moving from shortstop in 2010. Smith continues to improve defensively but struggled at the plate last year. Gambino does not expect that to continue. “I think Garret Smith is going to have a big offensive year,” he said. “I really do. As far as pure baseball players, I will put him with anybody in the country. He can play anywhere on the field and legitimately play shortstop in the ACC as well as the other infield positions. He is one of the top catchers in the league and if he was a full-time pitcher, I wouldn’t be surprised if he was one of the top bullpen guys in the ACC. That kid is unbelievable.”

Zapenas stepped up at the dish last year as well, batting .318 with 14 RBI. “Zapenas has to be in the conversation as one of the top defensive shortstops in the country,” Gambino said. Zapenas nearly cut his error total in half from his freshman (11) to sophomore (6) campaign and will only get better.

THIRD BASE Junior Anthony Melchionda will spend his second season as the starting third baseman after an impressive 2010. He led the Eagles in batting at .358 while hitting 12 doubles, seven home runs and recording 41 RBI. “I don’t know if we can get much better in the field,” Gambino said. “Melchionda, Zapenas and Hamlet can play defense with any three in the country. Melchionda and Hamlet are ACC shortstops. When you have that, then you have a special infield. Our pitchers can feed off that because they can attack the zone and pitch to contact. It gives them confidence. You can’t overstate how important it is to have them in the infield.”

OUTFIELD The corner outfield spots will certainly have familiar faces when the first pitch is thrown at Coastal Carolina. Junior Marc Perdios will start in right field. He played in just 14 games last year early in the season but hit a pair of solo home runs. Junior Andrew Lawrence split time with Sudol in the outfield, starting 23 games and appearing in 41 total. He batted .287 with six doubles, three home runs and 13 RBI and will be the starter on the other side in left field.

Sophomore Matt Watson has made tremendous improvements defensively and was a mainstay as the team’s designated hitter in 2010. He got off to a torrid start and finished batting .259 with eight doubles, seven homers and 34 RBI.

Tom Bourdon is a freshman that has earned the spot between them in center field. A 38th round draft pick of the Boston Red Sox, Bourdon led Northwest Catholic to the Connecticut state title and was an All-Region I honoree.

Junior Jim Laufer and freshman Nate LaPointe add depth behind the plate.

“Bourdon is an absolute worker and is really driven,” Gambino said. “All he cares about is getting better. He has a really good feel for making adjustments. He’s a kid that when he struggles, he will be able to get out of it. His tools will jump out at you, but it’s his makeup that will allow him to have a lot of success.”

FIRST BASE Senior Mike Sudol looks to be the frontrunner to be the opening day starter at first. He is making the transition from his outfield spot and is too important a bat to not have in the lineup. “He’s working really hard to get better over there,” Gambino said. “I can’t talk enough about him. Sudol, Watson and Anthony Melchionda will provide the bulk of our offense.” Sudol played in 41 games in 2010 with 22 starts. He was second on the team with a .326 batting average while belting six home runs and driving in 33. He slugged at a team-best .652 clip. Prohovich, Melchionda, Watson and sophomores Rob Moir and Spenser Payne are also able to play first.

The Eagles have great depth in the outfield as well with sophomores Moir and Matt McGovern. Moir saw time in 21 games last year while McGovern played in 28. “Rob Moir is a leader on this team,” Gambino said. “The toughness he brings to this team can really factor in the lineup. I love having him.” BC can also rely on Payne, sophomore Koury Hajjar, redshirt freshman Jimmy Dowdell and freshman Chris Pagliarulo to fight for playing time.

Virginia Tech’s batting average improved 40 points (from .279 to .319) under his direction since the 2006 season. With Gambino’s help, the 2010 Hokies made their first appearance in the NCAA Tournament since 2000 and finished the season ranked No. 20 in the country.

ASSISTANT COACHES • SCOTT

43 FRIEDHOLM • Assistant Coach • First Season at Boston College • Providence ‘98

Englert first served as an assistant with Harwich from 1998-2002 before being promoted to his current position as field manager in 2003. Under his tenure as head coach, the Mariners have averaged 19 players drafted per year including six first round picks in the last four seasons. Englert has tutored 36 All-Americans and over 200 players currently play professionally, including 22 major leaguers.

Scott Friedholm, who spent the last five seasons as the recruiting coordinator and pitching coach at Navy, enters his first season as an assistant coach for the Boston College baseball team.

Englert came to the Heights after spending one season at Holy Cross, where he coached the catchers and outfielders and was also the hitting instructor. He helped tutor the Crusaders to the Patriot League Tournament in 2001.

Friedholm, who also serves as the recruiting coordinator and pitching coach for the Eagles, helped the Midshipmen reach new heights on the diamond. He guided the pitching staff to the highest five-year win (149), strikeout (1,757) and save (59) totals among any other five-year stretch in program history.

Prior to his stint at Holy Cross, he spent one season at Virginia Commonwealth University, where he coached the catchers and also worked as the hitting instructor. While at VCU, he helped lead the team to the Colonial Conference Tournament championship game.

Friedholm developed the first two pitchers to ever be drafted out of Navy while also mentoring 12 all-conference selections, three freshman All-Americans and one All-American. The Midshipmen won 30 games in four of the five years he was at Navy. The program had done that just three times in the previous 110 seasons. Prior to arriving in Annapolis, Friedholm spent four seasons in the same capacity at Maine, producing a pair of MLB draft picks and guiding the Black Bears to two NCAA Tournament appearances. Friedholm also served as the pitching coach for two seasons at Bryant, where the Bulldogs set school records in both overall and Northeast-10 Conference wins in consecutive years.

Englert’s first collegiate coaching job came in 1998 as an assistant at the University of Richmond. In his only year there, the Spiders broke the school single-season record for home runs, won the Colonial Conference, earned a bid to the NCAA tournament and finished the season ranked No. 25 in the country.

Friedholm played four seasons at Providence from 1995-98. As a freshman, he was part of the Friars squad that won 44 games and a program-record 16 Big East games that earned them a spot in the NCAA Tournament. Friedholm earned All-Big East and all-region honors in 1996 and then as a senior he hit .395 with 13 homers and a school-record 66 RBI, earning All-America honors. Friedholm signed a free agent contract with the Tampa Bay organization in June of 1998. He played for the St. Petersburg Devil Rays of the Class A Florida State League. In 1999, he attended the Rays’ spring training camp. Friedholm graduated from Providence in 1998 with a degree in history.

42 • STEVE ENGLERT • Assistant Coach • 10th Season at Boston College • Boston College ‘87 Steve Englert is in his 10th season as an assistant coach at Boston College. Englert’s primary responsibilities are working with the catchers and as a hitting coach. Englert mentored Tony Sanchez who emerged as the top collegiate catcher in the country in 2009 and was a finalist for the Johnny Bench Award. Sanchez was selected fourth overall by the Pittsburgh Pirates, making him the highest draft pick ever from Boston College. Englert has seen 29 Eagles selected in the Major League draft since he took a position at Boston College in 2002.

12

In addition to coaching the Eagles, Englert has also coached the Harwich Mariners in the Cape League for the past 13 seasons. In the summer of 2008, Englert led the Mariners to its first Cape League title since 1987.

A 1987 Boston College graduate, Steve resides in Chestnut Hill, Mass., with his wife, Lisa, and their daughter, Samantha.

41 • GREG SULLIVAN • Assistant Coach • First Season at Boston College • Eastern Connecticut State ‘06 Greg Sullivan, who spent four seasons as the head coach at Newbury College, is in his first season as an assistant coach for the Boston College baseball team. Sullivan came from Wofford College where was named an assistant coach in June, 2010. Sullivan was named Newbury College’s first head coach in January 2007 and began laying the groundwork for the development of the program. In 2008, he was named the national Coach of the Year by the Association of Division Three Independents. The Nighthawks earned the New England Collegiate Conference Sportsmanship Award in each of the last two seasons.

EAGLE GREATS Boston College’s baseball greats who have been inducted into the BC Varsity Club Hall of Fame:

1970

Charles “Duck” Darling (’25) – “Chuck” is one of the finest hitters in Boston College history, finishing his playing days with an average over .400. Despite his prowess at the plate, he was even more successful on the football field. He earned AllAmerica honors at both quarterback and fullback, and served as captain in 1923. Louis “Luke” Temple (’21) – “Luke” is not only one of the greatest athletes to ever wear the Boston College maroon and gold but he was one the premier athletes in America in his time. He is one of the few athletes to earn letters in four different sports. This infielder/catcher captained three sports his senior year (football, basketball, baseball) as well as played goalie on the hockey team. After his BC days, he went on to excel professionally in football, basketball and baseball.

1976

Bob DeFelice (’63) – This backstop doubled as guard and linebacker on the Eagle football squad. Bob finished his collegiate career with a batting average over .300 and was arguably the best defensive catcher in Boston College history. In his four-year career, Bob went to the NCAA District I playoffs four times, twice advancing to the College World Series in Omaha, Neb. Bob is now the baseball coach and athletic director at Bentley College. John Dixon (’31) – The “Norwood Lamplighter,” as he was dubbed because of his large stature, was the cornerstone of a BC pitching staff that dominated New England baseball. This staff, under coaches Hugh Duffy and Frank “Cheese” McCrehan, was one of the greatest in New England baseball history.

Al Weston (’29) – This talented first baseman graduated with a career batting average over .400. In 1928, he led all eastern college players in batting, posting a .465 mark. After his playing days at Boston College, he went on to a professional career with the former Boston Braves (now Atlanta Braves).

Ed Gallagher (’32) – The great fire-balling, left-handed pitcher, who led BC to an era of unprecedented baseball success, also played both ways on the gridiron. After graduation, he played professional baseball with the Red Sox and later returned to BC as the elected President of the Alumni Association (1955-56).

1971

1977

Frank “Cheese” McCrehan (’25) – “Cheese” was the ace of the 1923 pitching staff, the year that the yearbook editor claimed the unofficial national championship for the Eagles. His greatest moment came when, in front of 40,000 people, he defeated Owen Carroll and Holy Cross, 4-1, at Braves Field. The threegame series between the top-ranked Crusaders and secondranked Eagles for the Eastern Title drew a total of 83,000 spectators. He later coached at the Heights for eight years.

1972

Mike Roarke (’52) – This two-sport athlete captained both the football and baseball teams his senior year, earning him the title “Mr. Captain.” This solid hitter was also one of the best catchers to ever don the maroon and gold. After his career at the Heights, Mike enjoyed a short stint with Detroit Tigers before entering the major-league coaching ranks. Mike was inducted into the Boston College Varsity Club Hall of Fame in 1972.

1973

Rev. Msg. Bernard O’Kane (’09) – Monsignor O’Kane was probably Boston College’s first real star athlete. Like fellow hall of famer Luke Urban, O’Kane captained three sports – baseball, basketball and track. While he was most successful in the track meets, he was a star on the diamond as well. This standout center fielder was also dominant at the plate, even against such names as Notre Dame’s Jean Debuc’s (later a teammate of Ty Cobb in Detroit) and famous Red Sox pitcher Smokey Joe Wood. Andy Spognardi (’32) – Andy earned his spot as one of the great infielders in Boston College baseball history. An outstanding shortstop, he was known for his lightning-fast pivot on double plays. On the very day he graduated from BC, he was given a contract with the Boston Red Sox and took over the shortstop role that same day. His career as a major league infielder was cut short in favor of his lifelong ambition: to become a doctor.

1974

Phil Corrigan (’21) – One of four student-athletes to letter in four sports at Boston College, he participated in hockey, track, baseball and football. The versatile athlete, played infield, outfield and catcher for the Eagles.

1975

Ed Mullowney (’26) – An outstanding right-handed hurler, he pitched the Eagles to Eastern baseball supremacy. Also the hockey team’s defenseman, Mullowney spurned professional offers from baseball’s Washington Senators and hockey’s Boston Bruins to attend law school.

George Colbert (’32) – As well as being both the quarterback and punter for the football team, George’s real prowess was on the diamond. He led the team in batting his sophomore year, hitting .459, to set a mark that would not be eclipsed for a long time. He also led the team in hitting his junior and senior years, and he was named captain his senior year. He later served as the coach of BC’s freshman baseball team.

1978

Bob Niemiec (’61) – This knuckleballer was the ace of head coach Eddie Pellagrini’s staff that dominated New England baseball for three years. During his time at the Heights, in which the Eagles went to the College World Series twice, the team posted records of 12-4, 15-6 and 18-6, respectively. In the 1960 College World Series, Niemiec held the USC Trojans (who went on to win the national championship) scoreless for 7.0 innings until a back injury forced him out of the game. Bill O’Brien (’67) – Bill is one of the best pitchers in Boston College history. During his senior year he led Eddie Pellagrini’s team to Omaha, Neb., where he picked up the win in the Eagles’ first game in Rosenblatt Stadium.

1981

Rev. Bill Commane (’43) – Anyone who knows BC baseball history will agree that Bill is one of the premier hitters to ever play at the Heights. He batted .425 as a sophomore, .454 as a junior, and encored with a .440 mark as a senior. When he wasn’t blasting his fabled “tape-measure” home runs, he was making key blocks as a fullback for the 1943 football team that went to the Orange Bowl.

1982

Hugh “Duffy” O’Regan (’21) – The powerful left-handed batter and fine defensive catcher was a mainstay of the outstanding Boston College baseball teams of the early 1920’s. He was inducted into the Boston College Varsity Club Hall of Fame in 1982.

1983

Bob “Beaver” Martin (’61) – “Captain,” as he was affectionately called by his teammates, earned the title by captaining both the 1960 and 1961 squads. Beaver led the 1961 Omaha-bound squad in hitting (.370). He was also selected to the GBL All-Star team in each of his three years on the varsity squad and earned all-New England honors in each of his last two years. Following his senior campaign he received Second Team All-America accolades, as well as garnering Frank “Cheese” McCrehan Award distinction. Bob was inducted into the Boston College Varsity Club Hall of Fame in 1983.

1985

Harold “Mickey” Connolly (’43) – A highly-talented fullback who scored the Eagles first touchdown in Boston College’s 19-13 victory over Tennessee in the 1941 Sugar Bowl. Also a member of the BC backfield for the 1943 Orange Bowl. Played baseball during his collegiate career at the Heights. Following a professional football career, Mickey became a college football coach at Xavier University.

1986

Bill Cunis (’62) – Cunis hit cleanup on three-consecutive Eagle squads, including the 1960 team that finished third in the College World Series and the 1961 team that returned to Omaha, Neb. Three times he was named to the Greater Boston League AllStar team (1960-62) as a left fielder. He later coached at the Heights for 23 years (five years with the freshman, three with the junior varsity and 15 as an assistant on the varsity squad).

1987

John Temple (’31) – John played four years of baseball and one year of hockey at Boston College. This talented outfielder went on to coach hockey at BC (for one year while the legendary “Snooks” Kelly was in the Navy) as well as baseball. The highlight of his eight-year coaching career came in 1953 when he took the Eagles on their first trip to the College World Series in Omaha, Neb. Boston College beat Houston in the first game and went on to finish fourth in the nation behind teams such as Michigan and Texas.

1988

Bill Robinson (’61) – Though he played three years on the Eagle football squad, “Robbie” left his mark on the Shea Field diamond. Bill is one of the winningest pitchers in Boston College history, posting a 5-0 mark with a 1.94 ERA in his sophomore campaign. He followed suit his junior year, going 5-1, and was equally successful in his final season, compiling a 6-2 record. During that span, he helped lead coach Pellagrini’s team to Omaha, Neb. in back-to-back seasons (1960 and 1961), and picked up a win in each trip.

1989

Mike Robertson (’69) – Mike can lay a legitimate claim to the title of best athlete ever to don the maroon and gold, starring on the gridiron and ice as well as on the diamond. As a senior, this power-hitting second baseman ranked in the nation’s top 10 in home runs, while still posting an impressive .330 average. He earned all-New England and Greater Boston League all-star honors for his efforts.

1990

Joe O’Brien (’78) – The two-sport athlete was the ace pitcher in the Eagles’ 1977 squad while also starting at quarterback and running back for the football team.

1991

He was also named the Greater Boston League’s Most Valuable Player that year, hitting .563 in the conference. The following year, he appeared on the GBL all-star team as well as the ECAC District I team.

1993

Frank Faggiano (’62) – This great defensive third baseman (who, as baseball lore goes, never had a bad game) graduated with a career batting average over .300. He helped take the Eagles to two consecutive appearances in the College World Series, and batted .320 in Omaha, Neb. Frank was captain his senior year and won the Frank “Cheese” McCrehan Award for character, scholarship and ability. He would later found and serve as the first President of the Diamond Club (a support group for Eagle baseball).

THE ACC

THE TRADITION

Consistency. It is the mark of true excellence in any endeavor. However, in today’s intercollegiate athletics, competition has become so balanced and so competitive that it is virtually impossible to maintain a high level of consistency. Yet the Atlantic Coast Conference has defied the odds. Now, in its 58th year of competition, the ACC has long enjoyed the reputation as one of the strongest and most competitive intercollegiate conferences in the nation. And that is not mere conjecture, the numbers support it. Since the league’s inception in 1953, ACC schools have captured 121 national championships, including 65 in women’s competition and 56 in men’s. In addition, NCAA individual titles have gone to ACC student-athletes 130 times in men’s competition and 91 times in women’s action. ACC Baseball again made its mark nationally in 2010. The conference saw eight teams – Clemson, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Miami, North Carolina, NC State, Virginia and Virginia Tech – ranked nationally at some point during the regular season, and seven of those teams remained ranked in at least one poll entering NCAA play. Florida State, seeded fifth in the ACC Championship field, won the tournament for the fifth time since joining the conference prior to the 1992 season. All of those titles have come under the watch of veteran coach Mike Martin, who posted his 1,600th career victory earlier during the 2010 season. The championship game between FSU and NC State at Greensboro, N.C.’s NewBridge Bank Park attracted 6,724 fans, the sixth-most all-time and the most since the tournament adopted its current, round-robin pool play format in 2007. NewBridge Bank Park proved to be a hitterfriendly venue that witnessed an ACC Championship-record 51 home runs by 36 different players in 13 games. Miami catcher Yasmani Grandal was named the ACC Player of the Year, earned a Gold Glove and was a consensus All-America selection after batting .401 with 15 home runs and 60 RBIs. Virginia’s Danny Hultzen (11-1, 2.78 ERA) earned ACC Pitcher of the Year and joined Grandal in raking in numerous national honors. ACC Freshman of the Year honors went to Duke’s Marcus Stroman, and Virginia’s Brian O’Connor was voted Coach of the Year. Six ACC teams won at least 40 games (including postseason), led by Virginia’s 51 victories. Fourteen ACC student-atheltes were named to at least one All-America team. That included Georgia Tech junior shortstop Derek Dietrich, who was also named the ACC Scholar-Athlete of the Year. Dietrich was one of a league-record 64 ACC players taken in the June Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft. That included four first-round selections – North Carolina pitcher Matt Harvey, Miami’s Grandal, Georgia Tech pitcher Deck McGuire and Clemson outfi elder Kyle Parker. ACC teams posted a record of 249-99 against nonconference opposition, a winning percentage of .716. A league-record eight ACC teams earned spots in the 2010 NCAA Championship fi eld. Virginia, Georgia Tech and Miami were named as regional host schools, and Florida State earned an automatic berth as ACC champion. Clemson, North Carolina, NC State and Virginia Tech were also among the field of 64 teams. Clemson, Florida State, Miami and Virginia reached the Super Regionals (fi nal 16). Two teams moved on to the College World Series at Omaha, Neb., as Clemson topped Alabama in a best-of-three series, while Florida State turned back Vanderbilt in its Super Regional.

FSU appeared in the College World Series for the 20th time, while Clemson made its 12th appearance. After losing its first CWS game against TCU, the Seminoles bounced back with a win over Florida in the elimination game before suffering an 11-7 loss to TCU in a rematch. Clemson won its first two games in Omaha, downing topseeded Arizona State, 6-3, and Oklahoma 6-4 before dropping a pair of games to eventual NCAA champion South Carolina. This marked the fourth time in fi ve years that the ACC placed multiple teams in the College World Series. A total of 12 ACC teams have appeared in the CWS over the past fi ve seasons (2006-10). The ACC has consistently infused Major League Baseball with talented players. The current 12 ACC schools have had 768 players selected in the MLB Draft since 1994, including 57 first-round picks. The conference’s four student-athletes chosen in the first round in 2010 extended the ACC’s streak of at least one player selected in the first round to 19 consecutive years. The ACC has had at least 50 players taken in each of the last four drafts. The conference has also had multiple fi rst-round selections in nine of the last 10 drafts. The ACC has produced four No. 1 overall picks in North Carolina’s B.J. Surhoff in 1985, Florida State’s Paul Wilson in 1994, Clemson’s Kris Benson in 1996 and Miami’s Pat Burrell in 1998. The 2010 MLB season saw former Florida State AllAmerica catcher Buster Posey, a 2008 first-round draft pick by San Francisco, named the National League Rookie of the Year. Posey hit .305 with 18 home runs and 67 RBI to help key the Giants to the NL pennant and eventual World Series title.

2009-10 IN REVIEW

The 2009-10 academic year saw league teams capturing an all-time high eight national team titles and nine individual NCAA crowns. In all, the ACC has now won 50 national team titles over the last 13 years and two or more NCAA titles in 28 of the past 30 years. The ACC was the only conference in America to place four of its teams in the final Top 10 rankings of the 2009-10 Learfield Director’s Cup Standings – symbolic of the nation’s top overall programs – as Virginia (3rd), Florida State (5th), North Carolina (7th), and Duke (10th) were ranked nationally in the Top 10. A total of 123 league teams earned a berth in NCAA postseason competition, compiling a 116-64-3 (.637) mark in NCAA championships. The ACC had 96 teams ranked in the final Top 25 polls, including 42 teams ranked in the Top 10, while six teams finished No. 1 in at least one poll in their respective sport. In addition, the ACC had 253 league student-athletes named to All-America teams in 2009-10, 127 men and 126 women, and 108 ACC athletes earned Academic All-America honors. The league produced six national Player of the Year, four national Freshman of the Year, and four national Coach of the Year honorees.

DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS GENE DEFILIPPO

$27 million during the past year (this total includes an extraordinary payment towards a capital project). The 4,600 donors to the Flynn Fund prove that there is strength in numbers; nearly 700 alumni, parents and friends have given to BC Athletics for at least 10 consecutive years. Anne and Gene DeFilippo cemented their commitment to Boston College by announcing their pledge of $100,000 to endow a scholarship. The scholarship will be awarded annually to a female student-athlete who demonstrates outstanding academic achievement and financial need.

Since Gene DeFilippo became Director of Athletics in September of 1997, he has led the BC athletics program to an unprecedented period of innovation, growth, fundraising, athletic and academic success. He also led the program through one of the most significant periods in its history as it transitioned to full membership in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

In athletics competition, DeFilippo has overseen some of the most successful seasons in Boston College Athletics history. During the 2009-10 season, the football team appeared in a school-record 11th consecutive bowl game and the men’s ice hockey team captured its fourth national championship (its third since 2001). In 2008, the men’s soccer team captured both the ACC regular-season and tournament championships and entered the NCAA Men’s Soccer Tournament as the overall No. 1 seed. From 1993-97, DeFilippo served as director of athletics at Villanova University. He served as Associated

Director of Athletics at the University of Kentucky from 1987-93, Director of Athletics at the University of South Carolina-Spartanburg from 1984-87 and Director of Administrative Services at Vanderbilt University from 1983-84. His coaching experience includes three years as offensive backfield coach at Vanderbilt (198082), which included the 1982 Hall of Fame Bowl. From 1975-79, he was offensive coordinator at Youngstown State University, during which time the team won two consecutive Mid-Continent Conference championships, 1978-79. In 1973-74, he was graduate assistant football coach for the University of Tennessee, coaching in the 1973 Gator Bowl and 1974 Liberty Bowl. A 1973 graduate of Springfield College with a Bachelor of Science degree, DeFilippo earned three varsity letters as a quarterback in football during his undergraduate career. He received a master’s degree in educational administration from the University of Tennessee in 1974. DeFilippo and his wife, Anne, are the parents of three children – Christine Eldred (married to Matt Eldred), John and Mary.

Under DeFilippo’s leadership, Boston College studentathletes’ achievements in the classroom have become an immense source of pride for the University and its supporters. Twenty-one Boston College sports teams received a perfect Graduation Success Rate score of 100, according to data released by the NCAA last November. That figure represents the most teams with a perfect 100 score of any Division I intercollegiate athletics program in the country. Last year, 379 BC student-athletes maintained a grade point average of 3.0 or better, earning the Athletic Director’s Award for Academic Excellence. BC’s graduation rate for all student-athletes has consistently ranked in the nation’s top ten. DeFilippo initiated an impressive overhaul of BC’s athletics facilities that includes new football practice facilities, a total renovation of Conte Forum, including a new sound system, floor and video boards, new soccer, field hockey and lacrosse facilities on the Newton campus, new Field Turf for Alumni Stadium, and an air-inflated bubble to cover the stadium turf to provide an indoor practice facility for all sports during the winter months. DeFilippo was instrumental in raising money to build the privately funded $27 million, 72,000-square-foot Yawkey Athletics Center, which houses the football program, the Office of Learning Resources for Student-Athletes, and a large function area for general University use. After football moved into the Yawkey Center, BC undertook a multi-million dollar renovation Conte Forum to provide additional locker room and office space for many of BC’s 31 varsity sports. DeFilippo renamed the Athletics Association’s fundraising arm (formerly Blue Chips) in honor of longtime Athletics Director Bill Flynn. Alumni, parents and friends of Boston College contributed more than

The DeFilippo Family – Matt and Christine (DeFilippo) Eldred, Anne, Gene, Mary and John.

CITY OF BOSTON BC is located on the doorstep of one of America’s great cities, a center of culture and education for three centuries. With its unmatched history and present-day status as the cultural, educational and commercial center of New England, Boston has garnered a well-deserved reputation as one of the truly great cities in America and, indeed, in the world. Boston, the capital of Massachusetts and largest city in the six-state region, is perhaps best known for its plethora of top-notch colleges and universities. It is also famous for a wide array of professional and amateur sports options and an appealing proximity to some of the Northeast’s finest vacationing spots.

EDUCATION The Boston area sports the world’s most concentrated collection of educational institutions. Many of the country’s top universities, including Boston College, are located in New England.

HISTORY Bostonians led the charge for freedom in the Revolutionary War, as the so-called “Minutemen” – bolstered by such eminent patriots as Paul Revere, Samuel Adams and John Hancock – fought and died for this country’s independence.

REGION Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket, scenic islands off the coast of Massachusetts, are well-known for their bike trails, historic lighthouses and meandering beaches. The “arm of Southeastern Massachusetts,” Cape Cod serves as a relaxing summer haven for thousands of Bostonians, New Englanders and others.

SPORTS In addition to a wide array of college sports, the Boston area is a hub of professional sports passion. The Boston Red Sox capture the imagination of the region year-round and have won the World Series twice in the past four years. The New England Patriots have won three Super Bowl championships in the last seven years. The NBA’s Boston Celtics are widely considered the most successful and storied team in the history of sport, having just won their 17th world championship. The Boston Bruins were one of the NHL’s six original franchises.

BOSTON COLLEGE Boston College was founded in 1863 by the Society of Jesus to serve the sons of Boston’s Irish immigrants. It was the first institution of higher education to be founded in the city of Boston. Today, it is one of the foremost universities in the nation, with a coeducational enrollment of 14,500 undergraduate and graduate students. Boston College has drawn students from all 50 states and more than 80 countries.

“Deeply rooted in its Catholic and Jesuit origins, Boston College offers an education that is distinctive in spirit and content, that is doubly rich with the best of human thought and with the profound insights of faith,” writes Reverend William P. Leahy, SJ, who assumed the presidency of Boston College in 1996. “We believe that Boston College provides a transforming experience for young men and women.”

Boston College has grown not just in size, but also in stature and diversity. Today, it is ranked among the top 34 national universities by US News & World Report. Its Graduate School of Social Work is listed among the nation’s top 15, also by US News, while the graduate programs of its Lynch School of Education are among the top 20 and its Connell School of Nursing and Law School are among the top 30. In addition, Bloomberg/BusinessWeek ranks the Carroll School of Management 9th in the “Top Undergraduate Business Programs 2010.” Boston College is among the nation’s most selective universities, with nearly 30,000 applications received for its 2,250-member Class of 2014, and is numbered among the top American private research universities.

A continued expression of this philosophy, based on the Jesuit principle of cura personalis, or care for the individual, is the faculty’s dedication to teaching. BC faculty members have been honored for their teaching by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Education, while the University’s overall commitment to teaching has been ranked among the nation’s top 20, also by US News & World Report.

After more than a century of growth and evolution, Boston College holds fast to the ideals that inspired its Jesuit founders. The University today remains focused on its mission of helping students to develop their minds and talents while providing them with the motivation and compassion to use those talents in the service of others.

A Boston College education focuses not only on intellectual development, but also on personal, spiritual and physical development. Students are asked to use their abilities, education and acquired skills to help others in need, whether in Boston or Belize. For example, each year, BC undergraduates give some 550,000 hours of community service in the Boston area, while more than 650 students trade vacation for service during Spring Break. Nearly 2,000 students take part in retreats and spiritual formation activities annually.

Today, the Boston College motto “ever to excel” also extends to a broad array of extracurricular activities and opportunities ranging from sports to the arts. Athletics is integral to the University’s focus on the development of the whole person in body as well as in mind and spirit. BC offers 31 men’s and women’s varsity sports, all of which compete at the NCAA Division I level, and annually has one of the highest graduation rates in Division IA. BC offers a wide variety of resources that enrich intellectual and cultural life beyond the campus gates. Among these are the Jesuit Institute; Center for Ignatian Spirituality; Roche Center for Catholic Education; Church in the 21st Century Center; Boisi Center for Religion and American Public Life; Center for Human Rights and International Justice; Center for Christian-Jewish Learning; Winston Center for Leadership and Ethics; Center on Wealth and Philanthropy; Center for Retirement Research; Sloan Center on Aging and Work; Center for the Study of Testing, Evaluation and Educational Policy; TIMSS and PIRLS International Study Center; Center for International Higher Education; Burns Library of Rare Books and Special Collections; Robsham Theater Arts Center; McMullen Museum of Art; Center for Child, Family and Community Partnerships; Center for Corporate Citizenship; Center for Work and Family; Center for Irish Programs; and Weston Observatory.
