Delmar native Mike Fish, the former Siena College outfielder who was named Player of the Year in the MAAC for the 2013 season, has been spotlighted by Baseball America in its recap of the 2013 major league baseball draft.
Fish was listed as No. 5 under "Best Pro Debut - College Players." Fish, a 32nd round draft choice of the Los Angeles Angels, hit a combined .366 with 9 HR and 42 RBI in the minors last summer, playing 20 games with the Arizona League's Angels and 26 games with the Orem Owlz of the Pioneer League. He hit a robust .409 for the Angels with 10 doubles before being promoted to Orem, where he hit .337 with seven homers and 33 RBI.
The 6-1, 190-pound outfielder enjoyed an outstanding senior season for Siena, hitting .374 with a league leading 12 homers while leading the Saints to the final game of the MAAC Championship before falling to eventual titlist Canisius.
Fish led the MAAC with a .626 slugging percentage, 54 runs, 80 hits and 134 total bases. He was second in the league with 49 RBI and 16 doubles, and his .374 batting average was third.
