Christopher Rosario-Cruzado, Baseball

Christopher Rosario-Cruzado has been named the May Athlete of the Month. 

“Chris had a tremendous month of April, hitting four homeruns with three of them being clutch," said Coach Robert Stern, who selected him for the honor. "We were tied against Christendom in the fifth inning with two outs and he hit a grand slam! A week later he hit two homeruns against PSU Schuylkill. In addition, he has played a tremendous first base committing only one error.”

Cruzado is from Lancaster, Pa., where he attended McCaskey High School. At Central Penn, he is pursuing his bachelor’s degree in accounting. He enjoys the college because of the small class sizes.

“When I have small classes, I feel like I learn easier," said Cruzado. “I have a connection with the professors in case I do not understand something.”

Outside of school, Cruzado spends time with his family and friends. He trains hard every day working on his game. “My goals are to get a degree and to play professional baseball.”

"It’s an honor to get recognized for something I have done, and been good at, ever since I was six.”

As a freshman, Cruzado is making a huge impact in his first collegiate season. His coaches and teammates are supporting him as he continues to improve on and off the field.
