The 2017 Wall of Fame ceremony will be held on Sunday, June 4th at the dinner of this year's golf tournament at Northern Pines.
Two years ago, the alumni committee decided to recognize any alumni who has gone on an furthered their playing career at a higher level after leaving Cicero, North Syracuse or Cicero-North Syracuse. Any alumni who signed a professional contract or finished their college playing career at the Division 1 level will be recognized on the Wall of Fame. With that said however, we will still continue the yearly nomination process for all alumni and friends of the program. By doing this, the alumni committee will be able to focus more on the person and character of the nominee rather than their playing stats. We encourage everyone to read the nomination process and nominate an alumni to be recognized for the 2017 season. The deadline for nominations is Feb 1st, 2017. Our 2017 nominee will be announced in March!!! Congratulations to George Lonergan and Riley Moonan for being inducted into the Northstars Baseball Wall of Fame last summer.
Finally, below you will see an added addition to the Northstars Baseball Alumni page called Northstars Baseball Alumni - What We Look Like Now. Over the holidays or throughout the year when you are with alumni take a picture and send it to Coach Rockwell at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will include it below. Please include the names of the people in the picture and the year they graduated from the program. This will be an easy and fun way to catch up with alumni and see what they are doing today.
If you would like to be added to the Northstars Baseball Alumni e-mail distribition list please contact Coach Rockwell at email@example.com and he will add you to the list.
If you are interested in making a donation in exchange for a paver, please send in your order form as soon as possible. We will be installing the next round of pavers this spring. See link below for order form!
