FOR RELEASE: Immediate, Thursday, May 10, 2012
The MAAC Baseball Championships return to the Capital Region for the first time since 1998 on May 24-27 with Siena College hosting the four-team event at Joseph Bruno Stadium in Troy.
The highlight of the Championships will be Friday night's Fireworks Spectacular, set to follow the 7 p.m. game. All-session passes are available for $30 and include two games Thursday (3 and 7 p.m.), two games Friday (3 and 7 p.m.), two games Saturday (2 p.m. and the first Championship Game at 6 p.m.), and a single game Sunday (second Championship Game) at 1 p.m. if necessary.
Single session tickets are $15 for adults and $5 for students, but groups of 10 or more can get in for as little as $2 by contacting the Siena Fan Relations Office at (518) 487-2202 or e-mailing email@example.com.
The winner of the 2012 MAAC Championships will receive an automatic bid to the 64-team NCAA Tournament.
Dozens of former MAAC baseball players have gone on to play professional baseball, some at the highest level. Siena's John Lannan shutout Manhattan in the 2005 MAAC Tournament, and then advanced all the way to the majors as a starting pitcher for the Washington Nationals.
Siena is counting on strong support from Capital Region fans and businesses. A successful event could help lead to future Championship events in our area.
