Coach: Mr. Brent MacKay
Coach: Mr. Bart Badali
UCC only has a single team in baseball, but its varsity boys have in recent years come out swinging. The Blues won a 8-5 decision against division rival De La Salle College in the 2014 Conference of Independent Schools Athletic Association (CISAA) championship. It was the baseball program’s first title win since it was founded 22 years earlier by coaches Bart Badali and Brent MacKay.
Three players who’ve competed on the varsity team have so far been promoted to National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) baseball teams in the U.S. Many boys have also gone on to play at other post-secondary institutions.
While, typically, only experienced players make the varsity baseball team, coaches Badali and MacKay consider students as young as Grade 9.
