On Saturday, May 26, the Canisius baseball team won its third MAAC championship in the last six years after the Golden Griffins defeated Monmouth 11-0 in the MAAC Tournament championship game, played at Richmond County Bank Ballpark in Staten Island, N.Y. The win improved Canisius’ record to 35-20 for the season and also gave the Griffs an automatic berth into the 2018 NCAA Division I Baseball Championship.

On Friday, June 1, Canisius will open play in the Minneapolis Regional, when the Blue and Gold faces No. 14 Minnesota. That game will be broadcast live on ESPN3, and game time is set for 8 p.m. The Griffs will then play either UCLA or Gonzaga in the second-game of the double-elimination regional on Saturday, June 2. Game time and broadcast network will be announced.
