I am pleased to announce that our very own Max Bain has pitched a no-hitter for a Northwood Victory of 4-0 in a game against Wisconsin Parkside. Over the course of the game, he was able to strike out nine and walk three batters within seven innings. Max has been having a great year so far, he is 5-0 on the season, allowing only one run in the past 13 innings of play. In addition, he is the only pitcher to have had a no-hitter since Mike Quibell back in 1986. Max was named the National Player of the Week and the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Association Player of the Week for his efforts.
Max had this to say about his experience:
“The opportunity to play baseball at Northwood has been nothing short of extraordinary. I have had the pleasure to build friendships with teammates and coaches that will last me a lifetime. The commitment from coaches on and off the field has given me the support needed to further my athletic and educational success. Northwood Baseball has taught me about what it means to be a team player. It is never about me, but rather the team as a whole. I am so thankful for my team, coaches and Northwood University for providing me with the opportunities that otherwise, would not have been possible.”
Students like Max are what makes Northwood University so unique on and off the field. The skills and abilities our students build while being a part of our athletics programs such as teamwork, time management and goal setting will be with them as they take their next steps into the workforce. Congratulations Max on all of your success, I am sure we will see even more amazing things from you in years to come.
Have a great weekend!
