Fighting Saints Baseball

The College of St. Joseph baseball program is one that prides itself on leadership, competitive drive, and commitment to excellence. With players hailing from as far away as South America and California, the team is made up of a diverse group of student-athletes that are driven by the vision of an experienced coaching staff.

The College’s baseball program returned from a seven-year hiatus in fall 2014. Led by Coach Bob Godlewski, the team got off to a great start in 2015, making their first appearance in the United States Collegiate Athletic Association Small College World Series. They went 2-2 in the World Series and were led by All-Americans Alan Madsen, Bill Brancatella and Jayson Osborne.

The program is known for their impeccable pitching staff and their ability to manufacture runs on offense. The team makes annual trips to New Orleans, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia to compete with some of the top NAIA and Division II teams the country has to offer.

The program clinched its first national title in 2016, going undefeated in the USCAA National Championship Tournament and ending the season with an 18-game winning streak. Nick Rodriguez was named MVP of the National Championship Tournament. Coach Godlewski earned USCAA National Coach of the Year and Alan Madsen was named the USCAA Player of the Year. The team finished with a 52-11 record and Tyler Kunzmann, Nestor Velazquez and Connor Martin joined Madsen in earning All-American honors.

College of St. Joseph will host the National Tournament again in 2017.
