Huskies outfielder Anthony Buonaiuto was rewarded for a standout 2017 season on Thursday night in Windsor, as the Toronto native was named an OCAA (Ontario Colleges Athletic Association) baseball all-star. 

The 6’3” heart of the order bat ranked among the provinces top-twenty in batting average (.327), on-base percentage (.386) and slugging percentage (.519) while providing a stabilizing defensive presence.

“Anthony is the consummate pro, he’s one of those guys that goes all out for seven innings, no questions asked,” said head coach Tom Valcke. “He was a leader by example for us all season, a coaches dream from my point of view.”

Buonaiuto batted out of the two-hole, setting the table for a potent middle of the order while driving in seven runs himself. He finishes the year with 27 totals bases, a league-best three triples, seventeen hits and five stolen bases.

“You never heard Anthony chirping, he’s always focused on the task at hand and his actions spoke louder than words,” added Valcke. “Looking forward to next season, he’s the type of guy we need to be a pillar of this program.”

Buonaiuto started the year red-hot, with ten hits in his first six games. He only made one error in nineteen games, and twice finished with five or more total bases in one outing.
