Connetquot High School Class of 2018 graduate Ciaran McGinnis has been selected to take part in the Junior European Baseball Championship Tournament being held in Grosseto, Italy, from July 9-15 based on his remarkable baseball talents.

Ciaran, who holds dual-citizenship due to his father being born in Ireland, was asked to join the Irish national team following an outstanding career playing for the Connetquot High School varsity baseball team. Ciaran averaged .400 at the plate this season and had a 3-3 record pitching for the team as well. He split his time on the field between playing third base and pitching.

The Irish national team will play four games to qualify for the championship round of the European tournament. 
While attending, the Irish national team is expected to play a schedule which will include games against Spain, Lithuania, Germany and Italy. The week’s results will determine the playoff schedule which may also include teams representing Ukraine, France, Netherlands, Great Britain and the Czech Republic.

Ciaran was a Suffolk County All-League selection for the Connetquot High School varsity baseball team that finished this past season in the semifinals of the Suffolk County Championship Tournament. He will be playing baseball at Farmingdale State College this fall. The district congratulates Ciaran on this accomplishment.
