The Stags' senior catcher drove in 18 runs this summer.

Fairfield baseball catcher Mike Caruso '21 has been named to the All-Futures Collegiate Baseball League (FCBL) Second Team after an impressive summer on the diamond for the New Britain Bees. Caruso was the only catcher represented on the Second Team and finished the campaign ranked among the top players at his position.

Caruso tallied 18 RBI during the summer season, placing second among all catchers in the league. He ended the slate by driving in a run in five straight contests. Caruso also tallied 22 hits on the season bolstered by a season-high eight-game hitting streak during the first week of August. His best offensive game came on July 22 when he went 4-for-4 at the plate with a home run, four RBI and three runs scored in a Bees victory over the Brockton Rox.

This was the first season in the FCBL for Caruso. He was previously tabbed for the Sportsman of the Year Award by the New England Collegiate Baseball League (NECBL) in the summer of 2019.

In his career to date with the Stags, Caruso has started 58 games behind the dish with 67 total appearances. He has hit a pair of home runs, 10 doubles and racked up 20 RBI. A public health major from Wallingford, Conn., Caruso has been lauded throughout his career as a member of the MAAC All-Academic Team.
