UConn Baseball Wins Big East Tournament

Big East Champs and it feels so good

After an improbable run to the Big East Tournament Finals, the Huskies sealed the deal with an 8-1 win over Notre Dame yesterday. The story of the game was definitely Junior Starting Pitcher Anthony Marzi who threw with confidence and deadly accuracy, retiring the first 8 batters and giving up only 4 hits in a complete game effort.

Other major contributors include the Huskies defense (0 errors), LJ Mazzilli (2-4, HR, 2RBI), and Tom Verdi (3-5, 2RBI).

On to the NCAA Tournament!

Fun Facts:

  • This UConn team had 19 players from the state of Connecticut (and the announcers wouldn’t let us forget it)
  • Outfielder Billy Fertier won Tournament MOP
  • This will be our third NCAA tournament appearance in the past 4 years
  • Coach Jim Penders becomes the first person to win Big East Baseball Tournament as a player and coach. He was captain of our last team to win the tournament in 1994
