Ryan Feeney heads into his second season as an assistant coach with the Saint Michael's baseball program with the 2018-19 school year.
In 2018, the Purple Knights, who played a program-record-tying 41 games, set marks for saves (6) and pitching strikeouts (231) while yielding a .286 opposing batting average, their lowest in 12 years. They also cut more than two runs from their prior year's earned run average and matched their highest fielding percentage (.947) in five seasons. At the plate, their 125 bases on balls were their most in six seasons, they tied for third with 54 doubles, and the 54 bases the Purple Knights stole were four short of a 1994 standard. Saint Michael's played 21 games decided by three runs or fewer, swept a three-game series at Northeast-10 Conference counterpart Assumption College, and played four combined two-run games against perennial regional powers Franklin Pierce University and Southern New Hampshire University.
Feeney was named Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference (MASCAC) Player of the Year as a senior at Bridgewater State University in 2017, capping a two-year career during which he was named to the MASCAC All-Conference first team both seasons. He led the league in batting average (.419) and on-base percentage (.500) as a senior. In 66 career games, Feeney hit .389 with 91 hits, 19 doubles and 40 RBIs. A native of East Bridgewater, Mass., Feeney was a captain during his senior season.
