(Notre Dame, Ind.) Head coach Brian Blondell has continued he recruiting efforts following the conclusion of the best history in Holy Cross baseball with the signing of Steve Clancy (Yorkville, Ill.). Clancy becomes the eighth signee for the Saints and the fourth joining from Kankakee Community College.
"Steve is a great center fielder and will fill a huge hole for us in the departure of Dan (Wawrzusin)," coach Blondell stated. "Coming from a top level program like Kankakee, Steve comes in with great experience and high level of play. We are excited for his next two years with us."
An athletic player with good instincts gives Steve the versatility to play all three outfield positions. Steve will mainly play center field for the Saints.
Steve joins the Saints after most recently wrapping up his sophomore season for the Kankakee Cavaliers. During his sophomore season, Clancy appeared in 56 games while recording a .320 batting average, driving in 34 RBI's, scoring 47 runs and swiping 16 stolen bases out of 17 attempts.
As a freshman, Clancy appeared in 41 games, making 25 starts, and posted a .310 batting average.
Steve also excels in the classroom with a 3.27 GPA.
Congratulations to Steve for deciding to continue his education and baseball career with the Saints!
