RIVERDALE, N.Y. - The 2011 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) Champion Manhattan baseball team will receive their rings on Wed., Dec. 7 at halftime of the Jaspers' men's basketball game against Fordham. The 104th "Battle of the Bronx" will tip-off at 7 p.m. at Draddy Gymnasium.

The Jaspers, who went 34-19 last season, won second conference title in program history en route to the program's third NCAA Tournament appearance. The MAAC Championship game featured a dominating 13 strikeout performance from Mike Giordano as the Jaspers defeated the Siena 5-1 in the title match.

The entire championship roster, along with head coach Kevin Leighton, will be in attendance at the ceremony. Manhattan returns a strong core for 2012 under the direction of first year manager Jim Duffy, and will look to repeat as MAAC Champs.
