Siena's baseball coach Tony Rossi will be featured during Friday night's `Dunkin Donuts Yankees Tonight' pregame show on WNYA in the Capital Region. Rossi is the subject of an interview with host Dan Murphy. The pregame show runs from 7:30-8 p.m. on My4, Channel 4 (1804 in HD) in the Capital Region. The show will be followed by the Yankees vs. Twins game.
In his 39th season, Rossi guided the Saints to their third 30-win season and a MAAC Championship game appearance. The Saints won 21 of their last 25 games and broke several program records.
Rossi also recruited and coached current Washington Nationals' pitcher John Lannan. In total, 31 of the players he has coached have signed professional contracts.
Rossi is the winningest active coach in Siena and the MAAC in any sport. He was a 1985 Siena Hall of Fame and Albany Twilight League Hall of Fame inductee.
