Mike Fish was honored one final time for his standout senior campaign at Siena today, but if the early returns are any indication the Delmar native has plenty of baseball in front of him. CollegeBaseballInsider.com named Fish an Honorable Mention All-American Friday morning.
Fish was one of just two MAAC student athletes (Jon Fitzsimmons, Canisius) honored by the organization.
Fish was named MAAC Player of the Year in 2013 after leading the conference in home runs (12), hits (81), runs scored (54), total bases (136) and slugging percentage (.602), ranking second in the league in RBI (50) and doubles (17), and fifth in average (.358) as a senior. He helped the Saints reach the MAAC Championship game for the second time in the past three years this May.
Fish was drafted in the 32nd Round of Major League Baseball's First Year Player's Draft by the Los Angeles Angels on June 8. He has since enjoyed tremendous success in the Angels farm system, batting .404 with a .712 slugging percentage in 26 games played with five home runs, 22 RBI and 26 runs scored. He was promoted from the Arizona league to the Pioneer League where he is currently a member of the Orem (Utah) Owlz.
