UTICA, NY — With the first game of the Utica Blue Sox’ season only three weeks away, players, who come from all across the country, are wrapping up their college seasons. Many of them will be looking to continue improving their skills during the summer; one of these players is SUNY Oswego Junior Ryan Enos.
Born and raised in Oriskany, New York, Enos had already accumulated an impressive resume before his first season with Oswego. A varsity captain for his high school’s football, basketball and baseball teams, Enos was named First-Team All-State in 2015 and 2017, and Third-Team All-State in 2014 and 2016.
In his freshman year at Oswego, Enos notched a .345 batting average, accumulating 50 hits while adding four home runs 19 RBIs over the span of 43 games in 2018. He ranked second in the State University of New York Atlantic Conference (SUNYAC) in walks with 25 and 46 in runs, the latter slotted him at third all-time in program history.
Enos is Oswego’s starting third baseman this season and is in the midst of his most dominating season to date. The Oriskany native was named the SUNYAC Championship MVP, going 5 for 13 over the course of the conference playoffs with two home runs and six RBIs. This effort propelled the Oswego Lakers to win their third-straight SUNYAC Championship and fifth-straight appearance in the NCAA Division III world series.
“I am just glad to have played well, and help the team win the tournament.” Enos said.
Enos is currently hitting for a team-best .359 batting average this season, which is ranked third in the SUNYAC, with five home runs and 38 RBIs over the course of 41 starts for the Lakers this season. He also accumulated 56 hits so far this season, which puts him at the top of the board both on his team and in the league.
Additionally, Enos recently won the 2019 Google Cloud Academic All-District Baseball Team award, which recognizes students for on-the-field and in-class success, for not only his talents on the diamond, but for also maintaining a perfect 4.0 GPA.
Before Enos begins the season with the Blue Sox on June 1, he and the Oswego Lakers will play in the first round of their NCAA Division III World Series push on May 17 and 19, when they take on MIT and Southern Main/New England College. Enos said that once the NCAA tournament ends, he is looking forward to coming home and playing for the Utica Blue Sox.
