I have not but great things to say about Michael Bucci. I have known him for 10 years, as a student, player, and friend. Michael is team player, a former MVP of our school High School in 2013. He was a team captain in his final year of High School. He led our team to 2 City Championships and 2 Provincial Championships at OFSAA. He pitched great every time he took the mound. When he graduated our school he held school records for Total Wins, and Total Strikeouts. He also played OF and 1B for us as well. As a 15 year old he played on our Toronto Baseball All-Star team which participated at the Ontario Summer Games. He also was a member of the JR National Team for Canada in the Fall of 2012. He has always been respectful, a team player and led by example on and off the field. He was also a great student. He is a Bishop Allen Baseball Hall of Fame member.
