Baseball: BE's Krusinski commits to Delaware


By Phil Anastasia

Bishop Eustace rising senior Mike Krusinski has committed to the University of Delaware on a baseball scholarship.

Krusinski, who lives in Medford, said he also had offers from Maine, Winthrop, Fairfield and Wagner.

He said he thought Delaware was the "best fit" because of its strong academic reputation as well as its baseball program.

A top student, Krusinski said he hopes to enter the medical field, perhaps as a dentist or an orthopedic surgeon.

"I know friends and family that went there," Krusinski said Thursday. "It's such a good academic school and that really was my main priority. Baseball is on the side."

Krusinski hit five home runs as a junior for Bishop Eustace, which went 22-8, won a share of the Olympic National title and finished No. 5 in the The Inquirer Top 10.

Krusinski said he has been playing this summer for All Star Academy in West Chester, Pa.
