While Major League Baseball teams have been integrating some form of advanced analytics, not every college team is there yet. One college team that has hopped on board, analyzing the numbers side in comprehensive detail, is Marist baseball.
Jess and Lily are joined by Mike Cahill to talk about which baseball stats are really important, Marist baseball’s somewhat rocky start, and what they needed to do to make a strong playoff run, on this episode of Center Field’s Hypothetically.
An inside look at Tyler Kapuscinski’s baseball journal and how it helps him throughout the season.
Saturday afternoon the Marist Red Foxes took care of business in the first game of their double header against conference foe Niagara University.

The Marist baseball team once again faced rival Canisius College in another MAAC matchup on Sunday. The Red Foxes would unfortunately fall to the Golden Griffins, with the game ending in a final score of 8-6.

About 20 feet. That’s how close Marist’s baseball team came to more late game heroics. On a warmer day or with the wind blowing out, Frankie Gregoire’s deep shot to right center could have carried over the wall for a game tying home run in the ninth inning.
Kocinski finished things off with some late-inning heroics—but he couldn’t do the job alone.
“It is the one year anniversary of my grandfather’s death. He was with me in the box right there,” Kocinski said. “I looked up during my last at bat and thought ‘help me out here, help the guys out.’ And that’s exactly what happened.”
