Baseball smacks of success

Not as well known as its football and basketball counterparts, baseball at UMass might just be the most successful of the school’s three major men’s sports. And one of the biggest recipients of UMass baseball is none other than the Boston Red Sox.

Despite never playing for the Minutemen baseball team, three UMass graduates currently serve prominent roles in Major League Baseball as general managers, including Ben Cherington (right) with the Red Sox. The others are Chris Antonetti of the Cleveland Indians and Neal Huntington of the Pittsburgh Pirates. All three earned a master’s degree in sport management from UMass.
