CORTLAND, N.Y. — Nick Sinay, drafted in the 22nd round of the 2015 MLB draft by the Toronto Blue Jays, will be attending the Cortland Crush's Ice Crusher Event Saturday, Feb. 27 at the Cortland Ramada Inn.

Sinay played baseball for Marcellus High School in Syracuse and attended the University of Buffalo. He started as a catcher for UB, but his fast feet led to him being placed in center field. He led the team in hits (60), runs (42), total bases (69), walks (69), and on base percentage (.470). He also broke the school's single season record for stolen bases (30) and the school's career record (73).

During his first season for the Blue Jays minor league team, he had 13 runs on 20 hits with 4 doubles, 1 home run and 6 stolen bases, with a batting average of .227.

The Crush is excited to have Sinay attend our Ice Crusher event, where he will be answering questions and signing autographs.

The Crush's Ice Breaker event will be held at the Cortland Ramada Inn on Saturday, Feb. 27, from 6 to 9 p.m. Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for children 12 and under. Contact Bill McConnell at (315) 677-7201 to purchase tickets in advance.
