BCC’s Bronco Baseball Team Wins the 2019 CUNY Athletic Conference Championship
On a cold, rainy night at MCU Park in Brooklyn, BCC’s own Broncos baseball team defeated Kingsborough 9 to 7 — and with that victory clenched the 2019 City University of New York Athletic Conference baseball championship.
Many students contributed standout performances, including freshman Adrian Urena, who was named the game’s Most Valuable Player. He collected a double, two singles, three RBIs, two stolen bases, and two runs scored. Sophomore Quincy Williams added a pair of singles and drove in a run, and Neudy Salvador singled twice and stole a base.
On the mound, Victor Pena picked up the win over 3.1 innings, allowing just one earned run and four hits. Fellow freshman Esteban De Los Santos earned the save with an incredible performance 3.1 scoreless innings in which he allowed no hits.
But to Coach Adolfo de Jesus, every one of the team’s student-athletes was a champion.
“We started the journey preparing for this year back in August. I noticed the kids were hungry and willing to work hard. They never missed a practice, rain or shine, cold, hot. I knew I was going to have a special team.”
For BCC, it’s the first title since 2015 and 11th of all-time. Congratulations to all the Broncos and their dedicated coaches.
