Niagara, Canisius to co-host MAAC Baseball Championship


NIAGARA UNIV. -- For the first time in school history, Niagara University will host the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Baseball Championship. The 2017 MAAC Tournament will take place from May 24-27 at Sal Maglie Stadium in Niagara Falls, N.Y. Niagara will serve as co-host for the event along with Canisius.

"Hosting the MAAC tournament in Niagara Falls is a wonderful opportunity to showcase Division I championship baseball in the region," said Niagara University Director of Athletics Simon Gray. "The quality of competition will be very high, as will the stakes with a berth in the NCAA Tournament on the line. Niagara University is proud to partner with Canisius and Pitch 'n Hit Events in hosting the event at Sal Maglie Stadium."

Sal Maglie Stadium has seen revitalization, with numerous field and facility renovations having already taken place. The stadium is the current home of the Niagara  County Community College Thunderwolves and former home of the Niagara Power, which was previously a member of the New York Collegiate Baseball League.

For the fourth-straight season, the MAAC Baseball Championship will feature a six-team double elimination tournament with three games scheduled for May 24-26 and either one or two games on May 27 to determine the champion. May 28 is set as a rain date.
