New direction planned for baseball in 2017-18

SAINT LEO, Fla. – A new chapter in the storied history of Saint Leo baseball will begin with the 2017-18 season, with the next step of the process underway toward restoring the Lions to the upper echelon of the Sunshine State Conference.

"I am optimistic about the future of Saint Leo baseball, and I believe the resources are in place for this team to be competitive in the toughest Division II baseball conference in the country," said Saint Leo Director of Athletics Francis X. Reidy. "Besides our great facilities and the quality student-athletes on our roster, we are located in the middle of one of the top baseball recruiting hotbeds in the United States, in a destination location for baseball players who want to be able to play and practice outdoors year-round."

"I firmly believe all the elements for success are here, and I look forward to finding the individual who can bring those pieces together to elevate Saint Leo baseball to the top of the Sunshine State Conference and into NCAA post-season play," said Reidy.
