Bryan Goossens will serve as the lone captain for Siena’s 2016 baseball team. Goossens was nominated by his teammates after receiving the overwhelming majority of the annual team vote.
“I’m proud to announce Bryan Goossens as our 2016 captain,” head coach Tony Rossi said. “Bryan has played a huge role in the growth of this program through his hard work over the past three years. We look forward to the leadership he'll provide both on and off the field.”
Goossens has helped lead Siena to the MAAC Championship game in each of his three years with the program, and to a conference championship in 2014.
Goossens has made 45 appearances and 36 starts, tossing 218.1 innings in his first three years as a Saint. He was the 2013 Siena College Male Rookie of the Year and is a two-time MAAC All-Academic Team and MAAC Honor Roll selection. Goossens spent the summer of 2014 pitching in the Cape Cod League.
Goossens and the Saints open their 2016 schedule February 19 at Central Florida.
