GENERAL: A local product...Can throw three pitches for strikes...Pupil of Siena alum Dave Fields '00, the pitching coach at Colonie Central...Gained valuable experience as a freshman, flashing signs of his potential.
AS A SOPHMORE: Saw limited action, making three appearances... MAAC All-Academic and MAAC Honor Roll Selection.
AS A FRESHMAN: Appeared in 10 games, making three starts...Posted a 2-0 record with a 5.19 ERA...Struck out 16 and walked just nine in 26 innings of work...Top effort came at New York Tech (4/11) where he picked up the victory with 5.2 innings of one-run ball.
BEFORE SIENA: Went 9-1 in two seasons as a starter at Colonie Central...Went undefeated as a senior, striking out 33 batters in 26 innings pitched...Did not allow a hit in his last four appearances as a senior.
ROSSI ON KEARNEY: "Chris took a step backwards last year, coming off a fine freshman season. Suffering an injury over the summer he really never bounced back. He needs to try and find what he had freshman year and hopefully bounce back to give the staff quality innings out of the pen."
