The Stony Brook Seawolves are out of the 2012 College World Series, but the honors keep rolling in for the most successful baseball team in the history of the Long Island college.
Tuesday, Stony Brook will be honored by the New York Mets prior to the team’s game at Citi Field against the Baltimore Orioles. Stony Brook players will get to watch batting practice and meet some of the Mets players and will be honored in a ceremony prior to the game’s first pitch.
Stony Brook finished the season 52-15, the first team from the school to reach the College World Series. The Seawolves were also the first team from the America East Conference to reach the World Series.
Stony Brook defeated Miami, Missouri State and Central Florida in the NCAA Regional and LSU in the NCAA Super Regional to reach the College World Series.
In the recent 2012 MLB Draft seven members of the Seawolves were drafted by professional organizations.
