    Ohio State baseball | Dominic Canzone bright spot in rebuilding season

    Posted May 17, 2017 at 9:45 PMUpdated May 17, 2017 at 10:12 PM

    By Tom Reed
    The Columbus Dispatch
    Dominic Canzone was fed a complimentary statistic Tuesday afternoon and the Ohio State freshman turned on it like a belt-high fastball thrown across the heart of the plate.

    The right fielder downplayed the fact he hadn’t committed an error in 83 chances spanning 46 games this season

    “The transition hasn’t been bad,” said Canzone, who played first base and pitched in high school. “Fly balls are generally easy to catch.”

    Coach Greg Beal added context to Canzone’s fielding performance, which includes tracking wind-aided balls slicing toward the foul line.

    “Right field is the toughest position in (Bill Davis Stadium),” Beal said. “Dom is often looking into a setting sun and the wind here often blows from left to right.”

    In what has been an otherwise challenging season for the Buckeyes, Canzone is making the difficult look routine.

    Freshmen don’t often lead a team in batting average (.348) and slugging percentage (.471), but the Cuyahoga Falls Walsh Jesuit product has been excelling since mid-April. Canzone ranks second in the Big Ten in batting average in conference games and is among the favorites to win freshman of the year honors.

    “There is a fire in him,” Beals said. “He’s a quiet leader being a freshman, but there’s (a fire) burning inside him that fuels his competitiveness. He has earned the respect of all of our team, but especially our hitters because they see the success he’s having and the rate he’s having it.”

    Canzone is a cornerstone in the Buckeyes’ rebuilding project. A year after winning the Big Ten tournament, Ohio State (21-32) won’t even quality for the tournament.
    The Buckeyes lost seven starters from the 2016 club, including the top six hitters. Beals saw six players selected in last summer’s major-league draft, including four underclassmen.

    The coach said early season struggles led to a collective loss of confidence. The Buckeyes, who are 7-14 in conference play, conclude their season with a three-game homestand against Indiana starting tonight. Underclassmen such as Canzone, Noah West, Conner Pohl and Jake Vance are keys to helping Ohio State return to its winning ways.

    “We definitely have the talent,” Canzone said. “It’s about sticking with the process and understanding that we are good enough. More than anything, it’s really going out and doing it. We have the guys to compete for another Big Ten championship.”

    What are the odds Beal gets fired?

    I saw we were 87th in 2017 class rankings....I know baseball is a different world, but that can't be good.

    I wonder if Seth Lonsway (LHP) might actually end up pitching for the Buckeye. He was rated in the top 200 by MLB Pipeline (148th, for draft eligible players) but has not been drafted yet (After 10 rounds) He was projected somewhere between rounds 3-6 I read. He's a decently "big time" recruit. Big win if he ends up actually in Columbus.

    Though one pitcher isn't going to make a team.

    Maybe I'm just whistling past the graveyard, but it appears to me that the Bigs have drafted seven-eight of either tOSU's players or recruits. Now, if they're seniors, great and be done. However, it maybe that they['re underclassmen. If that is so, then it cannot be the lack of talent that caused tOSU faltering during the just concluded baseball season. Ergo, if the Bigs draft them, then it must be the lack of coaching on the part of Beals. Even Gene Smith has to be able to smell the coffee on this one. I realize that baseball is not a big revenue generator, hence Thad's quick exit, but come on! What does Beals have 'on' Gene Smith that he would be kept around? Go Bucks. If Thad can be gone, so can Beals.....Make it so. Go Bucks!

    National records held by Ohio high school baseball players or teams… Fire Beals:)

    Most Consecutive No-Hitters: 6
    Tom Engle threw six no-hitters in a row during the 1989 season. The Fairfield Union pitcher remains one of just two to have accomplished that feat.

    Engle, a senior that year, is said to have relied on a nasty knuckle-curveball for much of his success. He went on to be a second-round draft pick of the New York Mets, but topped out at AAA.

    Most Home Runs (Game): 5
    Eight high school players have hit five home runs in a game. Ken Lisko of Cardinal Mooney (Youngstown) was the earliest to do so according to the dates on the NFHS records, accomplishing the feat in 1976 when he was just a sophomore. Lisko drove in 12 runs that day, and was featured as part of Sports Illustrated's Faces in the Crowd for those accomplishments.

    Highest Batting Average (Single Season): .810
    Mike Breyman, playing at Seneca East (Attica) in 2000, batted .810 in 2000. The NFHS records only go to the tenths place, acknowledging seven players as the joint-record holders at 0.8. One of those tied with Breyman is current Cleveland Indians manager Terry Francona, who accomplished the feat at New Brighton (Pa.) in 1976.

    Above, Breyman is shown homering in 2008 to tie the independent Frontier League's hit record.

    Lowest ERA (Single Season): 0.00
    Chris Jiminez of Defiance didn't allow an earned run all of the 1989 season. He joins 27 others on the NFHS leaderboard that lists all 28 with 0.0 as their record-holding statistic.

    Most Baserunners Caught Stealing (Game): 6
    Sam Sifferlin threw out six baserunners stealing on April 9, 2010. He and his Wooster teammates were playing an early season game in Kentucky. No major league catcher has thrown out six base-stealers in a game since 1915.

    Sifferlin went on to play baseball at Capital University, making a few appearances. But none of them were behind the plate, the place where he made history in high school.

    Most Doubles (Game): 5
    Two of the three players to hit five doubles in a game are from Ohio: Sam Sustersic of Richfield Revere, who accomplished the feat on April 25, 2013, along with Mike Martin (above) of Independence, who did it almost a year later, April 10, 2014.

    Stephanie Kuzydym, The Plain Dealer
    Most Grand Slams (Inning): 2
    One good way to pad your RBI statistics is to come to the plate with the bases loaded twice in one inning, and clear the fence both times. Mark Franklin of Brookfield did that on April 16, 1982, and currently resides in a list of 23 players to have done so. Franklin hit one grand slam from each side of the plate, providing an already appropriate cushion for his team in its 21-6 win.

    Most Double Plays Turned (Team, single game): 6
    They call the double play 'a pitcher's best friend.' The Lancaster High School staff must have been thrilled on May 11, 1988, as the defense turned six double plays behind them.

    Eh, they weren't early draft picks by any means, if we had a run of players getting drafted in the top 10 rounds, then maybe you could say it was "lack of coaching" and not lack of talent.

    Shea Murray went in the 18th round, and he was a senior. Which means an easy sign and organizational depth pretty much.

    Jalen Washington, 29th round, same thing, SR cheap sign organizational depth

    Tre Grant was the only non SR draft (JR) in the 29th round. So there is a chance he comes back.

    Xavier Moore and Seth Lonsway were the only potential incoming recruits drafted in the 16th and 19th rounds. Anything after the 10th round pretty much for HS kids is a crap shoot if they sign or not, so hopefully both or at least 1 end up in Columbus next season

    Thanks for clearing away the fog for me. Thought I saw more draftees than that, but so be it. Do not follow baseball draft because of the large number of rounds . Hope the HS draftees realize an tOSU degree will be worth more than the $50k signing bonus they'll receive.......Go Bucks!

    buckeyemania11 HATE, HATE, HATE, HATE!!!

    Yea the baseball draft is a hard one to follow. It's mostly a crap shoot outside of maybe a few players at the top.

    Ohio State has never really produced much MLB talent though, so it's probably not fair to judge based on that. (Fire Beals though)

    Nick Swisher (12 season) Dave Burba (15 seasons) and Barry Bonnell (10 seasons) are really the only long standing established MLB players to ever come out of the program. Swisher being by far the best production wise. Burba and Bonnell were pretty average/mediocre but sticking in the MLB for 10+ years is impressive regardless.

    I remember Pete Shier out of Hilliard being drafted in the 9th round in the early 2000's.
