The Long Island University baseball program started in 1954 and Richie Scheinblum was their first player to make it to the Major League level.
Did you know that there are two (2) former Long Island University players who made it to "the show"? Send corrections or updates to Baseball Almanac.
On May 1, 2004, Frank Catalanotto went six-for-six at the plate in an American League game tieing the junior circuit record for hits in a game. Why mention this here AND include a quote about him at the top of the page? Because "Cat" attended C.W. Post during his offseasons.
