Siani Makes National U-18 Baseball Team
Mike Siani had a huge baseball season last year. As a sophomore, he batted .492, knocking in 22 RBIs and crossing the plate himself 21 times.
At the end of that season, Siani was named first-team all-Inter-Ac and the Philadelphia Inquirer's first-team all-Southeastern Pennsylvania.
After two rounds of tryouts, Siani, now a junior, was selected last week to join the under-18 national baseball team. Just 20 players fill that roster. He will travel with USA Baseball on Friday to Monterrey, Mexico, for the COPABE Pan Am "AAA" Championships to play Panama, Cuba, Honduras, Nicaragua, Colombia, Brazil and Mexico.
"Mike Siani is probably the most down-to-earth, humble kid I have ever coached. And he's the best 16 year old I've ever seen play, and I've seen a lot," Penn Charter baseball coach David Miller said. "He puts in so much work and he really understands the game."
