Nick Conway ’08 to Be Inducted into UMB Athletics Hall of Fame

BOSTON, Mass. - The University of Massachusetts Boston Department of Athletics has announced that former UMass Boston pitcher Nick Conway '08 will be inducted into the Athletics Hall of Fame as a member of the 2013 class.

One of the most decorated pitchers in UMass Boston baseball history, Conway will be one of seven new members to be honored this October in the university's annual ceremony.

The all-time career and single season leader in strikeouts with 234 and 82, Conway becomes the first player during head coach Brendan Eygabroat's tenure to be named as a Hall of Fame inductee.  A freshman when Eygabroat took over the baseball program, Conway was instrumental in leading the Beacons to four consecutive Little East Conference tournament appearances which marked a program first.

Named the 2006 and 2008 Little East Conference Pitcher of the Year, Conway also grabbed 2008 LEC First Team All-Conference honors as well.  On top of holding the career and single season mark for strikeouts, Conway also stands as the program all-time leader in innings pitched in a career with 245.0.  His 86.0 innings of work which he recorded in 2006, still remains the single season best at UMB. 

To date he also stands second all-time in career wins with 14 and is third all-time in career appearances with 45 and earned run average with 3.49.  His 15 and 12 K's in a single game still stand as second and fourth most all-time respectively. 

The 2013 UMass Boston Athletics Hall of Fame induction ceremony is scheduled to take place in the UMass Boston Campus Center Ballroom on Thursday, October 10, at 6 p.m. For more information about this year's Hall of Fame ceremony please contact Maria Marcelino at maria.marcelino@umb.edu or call 617-287-7895.
