Baseball

The Jesuit baseball program has a tradition of excellence that includes four state titles (1994, '97, '00, '14), dozens of District and Region titles, and several nationally ranked teams, including the 1997 National Champions. Hundreds of alumni have played baseball collegiately and professionally, including Major League Baseball Hall of Famer Al Lopez Sr. '27, legendary New York Yankee Lou Piniella '60, and current major leaguers Sam Dyson '06, Joe Hudson '09, Lance McCullers '12, Kevin Quackenbush '07, and Shane Robinson '03.

In 2011, Jesuit began playing at the spectacular Paul Straub Field at Hyer Family Park. The facility features the Joseph Capitano '56 Trophy Hall and was named Field of the Year by the National High School Baseball Coaches Association. Former University of Tampa star Miguel Menendez was named head coach prior to the 2015 season, and in 2017 the Tigers advanced to the State Championship game before falling to No. 2 nationally ranked Southwest Ranches Archbishop McCarthy despite a stellar pitching effort from Jeff Hakanson '17. In 2016 the Tigers finished 24-6 captured the District title behind the pitching of Jack Anderson '18 (0.60 ERA, pictured above right). Entering the 2019 season, Jesuit baseball has earned seven consecutive District titles, including 4-for-4 under Menendez.
