Baseball's Brian Monack Featured As The No. 2 Play Of The Week On ESPN's SportsCenter

Junior centerfielder Brian Monack's diving-catch against College of Charleston last week was named the No. 2 play on ESPN SportsCenter's Plays Of The Week segment. Monack had the play of the day on Thursday, March 12 and was also featured on several local sports news shows.

The Bobcats' centerfielder also earned the No. 1 spot on ESPN's Top-10 Plays of the Day last April when Monack caught a would-be homerun while diving over the centerfield fence at Quinnipiac Field. He also made an appearance on the ESPN morning talk show First Take as an in-studio guest discussing the play with host Jay Crawford.

This was the third Top Play of the Day on ESPN SportsCenter for Quinnipiac in the last 13 months, including men's basketball player DeMario Anderson's game-winning buzzer beater from half court against Central Connecticut State University on Feb. 28, 2008.

Quinnipiac heads back out on the road on Thursday, March 19 when they head to Fairfield, Conn. to take on Fairfield University in a non-conference match-up set for 3:00 p.m.
