Breitner Hits Milestone
The St. Clair College Men's Baseball team has closed the books on another successful season after celebrating a regular season and OCAA Provincial Playoff Championship capped by a National Championship. But much of the program's success in recent years is due to the contributions of 5th year pitcher Kyle Breitner.
As part of those championship years Breitner has compiled an astounding 37-3 record on the mound with a sparkling 1.52 ERA in over 280 innings pitched.
With his 11th and final strikeout in this year's National Championship semi-final win over Holland College he reached the milestone of 300 total for his Saints career.
His playoff record in five seasons is a splendid 8-1 with his only loss being a 2-1 defeat in the OUA/OCAA Championship against Brock University.
Individual OCAA honours for Breitner include 4 All-Star team selections, 3 Pitcher of the Year Awards as well as 1 Player of the Year Award. He was selected to the OCAA Championship All-Star team in 2016 and named to the National Championship All-Star team as the Top Right Handed Pitcher in each of the last two years.
Breitner was also named the OUA/OCAA Championship Top Pitcher in 2013. St. Clair has honoured him 4 times as the Top Pitcher on the Saints team to go with a pair of MVP Awards.
