Anthony Giananti and Gary DerHagopian were each selected to participate in the New York Collegiate Baseball League All-Star game contested Tuesday night at Shuttleworth Park in Amsterdam. Giansanti and DerHagopian helped the East capture a 10-5 win, and the pair have staked the Glens Falls Golden Eagles to a league-best 22-7 record at the break.
Giansanti, who was recently drafted in the 49th Round of MLB's First Year Player's draft by the Oakland A's but elected to stay at Siena for his senior season, is fourth in the league with a .353 batting average. Giansanti has stolen 9-of-10 bases on the season and is tied for second in the conference with a .529 slugging percentage. As a junior, Giansanti blasted 14 home runs for the Saints - just one off the program's all-time single-season mark.
DerHagopian batted .289 in 24 games played as a junior for the Saints and has enjoyed a solid summer behind the plate in Glens Falls. He has started 14 of the 18 games he has played in and stands seventh on the squad with .218 batting average.
