I am a recent graduate of Fairfield University in CT where I received a BA in Political Science and International Studies with a Minor in Management with Honors. I played club hockey for four years at Fairfield as part of the American Collegiate Hockey Association (ACHA) where we made the national tournament all four years. I currently live in Randolph, NJ and I attended high school at Seton Hall Prep where I played hockey, lacrosse, and ran track. I am hoping to be able to attend Law School in the fall.
My avid passion in being involved in sports is driving my interest in pursuing legal studies in sports contract law; to understand the management/media side of sports. While I have not played baseball competitively, my love for the game has never wavered and I’ve watched my younger brother’s baseball career grow now on the D3 collegiate level.

My name is Daniel Capuano and I am rising junior at the University of Pittsburgh. This season, I will be one of the official scorers for the MCBL. I am huge baseball fan and I started playing when I was five years old. Also, I have always been a diehard New York Yankees fan. I attended Pascack Valley High School in Hillsdale, New Jersey and played one season for the Indians. Every summer, my family and I visit a new MLB stadium and I have been to a total of 21 ballparks. Finally, I am a sports staff contributor for WPTS radio, the official campus radio station of my university, where I host my own weekly show.
The Mid-Atlantic region, especially New Jersey and New York for years have produced many quality ball players to go on and play collegiate baseball. Pat Kivlehan, Tommy LaStella, Doug Cinnella, and Gianni Zayas, all played in the region and played baseball at a professional level. The idea of the Metropolitan Collegiate Baseball League grew out of the need to have a collegiate venue for local players that want to play more baseball. The coaching staffs of the teams involved will focus on the development of the player in a collegiate setting. The 2016 summer season will be the inaugural season for the league and we will work hard to ensure that the venue is a positive experience for all.
Play ball !!!!
