Mission Statement

The Penn State York baseball department recognizes its mission to serve student athletes, the University and the broader community. Its major effort is to provide an opportunity for student athletes to achieve their maximum potential both athletically and educationally. It is the department's belief that many of the most important learning experiences in a college education take place outside the traditional classroom. Intercollegiate athletic competition provides students with the opportunity to test themselves against the best in their sport. Through participation in training and competitive activities, the department hopes to teach several values: hard work, motivation, and perseverance in both winning and losing situations; the ability to work as a team; a feeling of pride in accomplishment through fair and honest means; and a sense of good sportsmanship and a high level of personal integrity and ethical conduct.

Program History

Penn State York baseball began in the spring of 2005 as a club sport. In the first year, players competed against regional Division III programs in scrimmage format. In the first four years of competition in the Penn State University Athletic Conference (PSUAC) the team played a split season format with approximately half the conference schedule played in the fall and half in the spring. The team qualified for divisional playoffs in each of the programs first three years. In 2009 a revised conference wide format was implemented. The 2010 season marked the first time since the program’s inception that all conference games were played in the spring. The program has developed a reputation for excellence both in the classroom and on the field. Since the program’s inception, twenty-two local lions have achieved Academic All Conference standing while an additional four players have been named Athletic All Conference. One player was distinguished to be named to both all conference teams during the same season.

PSUAC Conference

Penn State York baseball plays in the Penn State University Athletic Conference (PSUAC). The conference is comprised of fifteen member locations of The Pennsylvania State University playing at the non-divisional level. Ten member institutions support varsity Baseball. The conference format provides for cumulative conference standings which determine playoff positions. Traditionally the top four qualify for playoffs in a round robin format.

The PSUAC has seen considerable growth and development in recent years with increased opportunities for Penn State student athletes. The fifteen PSUAC member institutions have provided competitive experiences for more than 1,350 student athletes in ten sports. Among the conferences greatest accomplishments is the fact that 435 student have earned Academic All Conference with a grade-point average of 3.0 or higher. The conference champion and one at-large PSUAC member earns a bid to participate in the United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA) national tournament.

USCAA Information

PSUAC member institutions also hold membership in the United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA). The USCAA is a national organization that exists to provide quality athletic competition on an equal level of competition with schools of like size and athletic programs on a regional and national level for their student-athletes.

Membership provides the opportunity for the PSUAC conference champion and one conference at-large bid to participate in the USCAA national tournament/world series. Additionally, Penn State York student athletes have the opportunity to be named All American or Academic All American. Penn State York’s affiliation with the USCAA began July 1, 2008.
