The Central Catholic Baseball Program is one of the top programs in Northwest Ohio. We play one of the most challenging schedules in the area each spring and summer. Excitement for Fighting Irish baseball is at a peak right now. Our state-of-the-art baseball stadium, which is second only to 5/3 Field in NW Ohio, is Mercy Field. It includes an all field turf (other than the pitcher’s mound), lights, press box, suite, clubhouse with 55 lockers, study suite, coaches office, indoor hitting facility and bleacher seating for more than 400.

We keep an average of 17 freshmen each spring. All of our teams are scheduled to play a 27 game schedule in the spring.

All underclassman who play on one of our teams in the spring are offered the opportunity to play on one of our summer teams.

Our varsity team has traveled to Melbourne, Florida 12 times in the past 17 years. We travel down on Easter break and spend a week staying at an ocean front hotel. Our goal is that each player who participates in our program for four years will have the opportunity to travel to Florida at least one time. The Irish varsity squad will travel there again during the 2016 spring break.

Our “Irish Baseball Club” has sponsored our summer teams for the past 16 years. Last year we sponsored a Junior ACME and a Senior ACME team.

We fund our varsity trip to Florida and our summer program through our Annual Baseball Reverse Raffle.
