My name is Anthony Cianci, I'm a 17 year old High School Varsity Baseball Player, starting pitcher, and starting 3rd baseman. I'm interested in attending a college that will allow me to achieve academic and athletic success. I fit the description of a true utility player. I have played all positions in the past, and do this with a high level of skill. My pitching has been timed at 85 mph and it will go up from there in my senior year 2012 baseball season. My batting average during the 2011 American Legion season was .431. It was a summer schedule, but we managed to play 38 games in 40 days, and placed 3rd in the nation in the NABF World Series. I've achieved several Scholar Athlete Awards, an award given to students participating in varsity sports and maintaining a GPA above 3.25. This was achieved for varsity baseball, as well as winter swimming (a secondary sport to stay active and healthy during the off season). I'm very goal oriented, I set high standards, and everytime I take the field I prove myself as an elite baseball player, as well as lead by example offensively and defensively.
