Baseball continues to excel at Brunswick. Heading into 2018, eighth-year skipper Johnny Montanez (112-36-1) built the Bruins into a regional power on the diamond, winning four FAA regular season titles and three tournament crowns since 2012. Additionally, the team owns numerous individual accolades, including state-wide coach and player of the year awards.
In 2017, the Bruins finished with a record of 14-6 and reached the chamionship game of the FAA for the third straight season.
Beyond annual spring training trips to Florida, the team also competes in Perfect Game tournaments in Georgia. During the season, the team faces one of the most difficult schedules in the region. Adding to a challenging FAA home-and-home slate, the Bruins schedule a number of talented baseball programs in the tri-state area.
Coach Montanez and his staff expect each player to maintain a standard of excellence to represent the Brunswick community. The coaching staff creates a daily environment designed to maximize the potential of all players, including members of the freshman, JV and varsity teams.
Many players continue their baseball careers at the collegiate level. Former Bruins have played for ACC, Big East, Ivy League, NESCAC and other top Division II and Division III programs.
In recognition of their athletic prowess, five senior Brunswick student-athletes signed National Letters of Intent (NLI) on Wednesday. In return for athletic-scholarship aid, four are committing to play NCAA Division I lacrosse, while one is slated to play Division I baseball.
