The Syracuse Spartans announce that Liverpool native Jake Sisto joins the team as the first catcher for the 2021 season.
“Jake is a great ballplayer and an even better person,” said Spartans Head Coach Matt Michalski. “Jake was my teammate at Cortland and I saw first-hand the work ethic and love for the game that he brought to the field every day. His catching abilities, leadership, and plate appearance are things that will help us tremendously this summer. Excited to get back on the field with Jake.”
Sisto is currently in his second season with SUNY Brockport. He currently bats .333 with two home runs and nine RBIs. Sisto previously played at SUNY Cortland, where he featured in seven games over two seasons for the Red Dragons. Sisto’s brother, Ricky, also previously played at Cortland and was a 2016 NYCBL All-Star with the Rome Generals.
Jake was a member of the 2017 New York Class AA Baseball State Champions at Liverpool High School. He earned All League, All CNY, and All State honors that season.
