      COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio State junior outfielder Dominic Canzone was named a third team Perfect Game/Rawlings All-American, the website announced Wednesday morning. Canzone, from Sagamore Hills, Ohio, becomes the 53rd All-American in Ohio State history. Canzone is the second Buckeye to be named an All-American in 2019.

Canzone led the Big Ten in hits (88), runs scored (66), slugging percentage (.620) and total bases (158). A 2019 team captain, Canzone was the regular-season batting champion in league games with a .374 average. Canzone also slugged a season-high 16 homers and 18 doubles. A three-time OSU Scholar-Athlete and two-time Academic All-Big Ten selection, Canzone started in all 63 games in right field for the Scarlet and Gray, guiding the team to a Big Ten tournament title and NCAA Regional appearance. Canzone, a Big Ten All-Tournament Team selection batted .345 (88-for-255) and recorded a team-high 25 multi-hit games this spring.

    Summer Ball: A ‘Switch In Positions’ For Ernst, Buckeyes
    by Sonny Fulks | OSU, OSU Feature

    [​IMG]
    An infielder by trade, Ernst is learning to play as many positions as possible this summer as a member of the Champion City Kings, in Springfield. (Press Pros Feature Photos by Julie Wright)



    It’s more relaxed, the pressure is off, and frankly, summer baseball for Ohio State sophomore-to-be Marcus Ernst has been a new learning experience, now through his first fifteen games this summer with the Champion City Kings of the wood bat prospect league.

    Ernst, a freshman last year from Dublin Coffman High School, hit .257 (18 for 70) in limited duty as an infielder, but distinguished himself by making consistent and hard contact at the plate when he did get his opportunities.

    He made 14 starts at third and second base. But more, he showed the ability to overcome veteran pitching with multi-hit games against Maryland, Minnesota, and Wright State, going 2 for 3 against the Gophers in a critical road double-header in May.

    And to Miami Valley Buckeye fans, he’s the pride of Stacie and Ben Ernst, but with Minster, Ohio ties…the 2018 Ohio Capital Conference Player of The Year for coach Tim Saunders at Dublin Coffman. In short, he portends to make an impact in 2020 and beyond as the Buckeyes seek to follow Michigan’s lead in this year’s CWS, hoping to switch positions with the Wolverines in 2020.

    Tuesday, prior to the Kings’ game with nearby Chillicothe, at Springfield’s Carlton Davidson Stadium, ‘Ernie’ took some time to answer questions about summer baseball, his freshman year, and what he’s working to improve before returning to campus and ‘fall ball’, come September.

    PPM: You had to be pretty happy with your freshman year. You got playing time, you got some big hits, and in short, you made a good impression on everyone who saw you play.

    Ernst: Oh yeah, I really didn’t know what to expect – what my role would be. I wanted to prove that I could play at that level and I did. I got some opportunity to play and got off to a good start. I kinda’ had a dry spell there in the middle of the year, but I came back with some good at bats late in the year and actually had an at bat against Vanderbilt in the regional against a very tough pitcher (Drake Fellows), the same guy that pitched against Michigan on Tuesday. So I really got a good idea of what it was like and what I need to take the next step. Overall, I thought it was awesome.

    [​IMG]PPM: Tell us what that next step might be. What was your exit interview like with the coaches before you left campus for summer baseball.

    Ernst: We talked about staying open to the possibility of playing multiple positions next year. Beals was not sure about what the roster was going to look like for then, so he just said come out here and play as many positions as possible. That’s what I’m trying to do this summer. Tonight I’m playing first base, but I know I won’t be playing there next spring with Conner (Pohl) coming back.

    PPM: There are going to be some positions open, particularly in the outfield, have you thought about the possibility of playing one of the corner outfield positions?

    Ernst: Yeah, but it’s been a long time since I’ve played in the outfield. But I’ve always been taught that getting in the lineup is a good thing, so any place that I can play and contribute would be OK with me. If that’s left field, that’s great. If it’s third base, that’s great. I just want to be in the lineup.

    PPM: The general impression you made this year was that you had a lot of good at bats. Were they happy with the way you swung the bat?

    Ernst: Early I was very happy with myself, then I had too many strikeouts in the middle of the year. But overall, I came back at the end of the year to have some good at bats. Here, I’m just working on my swing, getting consistent at bats and becoming more comfortable again. It’s hard to get into a rhythm when you’re in and out of the lineup, so here I’m trying to take advantage of the consistent at bats.


    PPM: When we looked this week you were hitting .328. You must be taking advantage.

    Ernst: Really? I didn’t even know. I hadn’t looked. I’m just hitting. I’m just trying to find a swing that’s comfortable and consistent at the plate.

    PPM: How do you like hitting with the wood bats?

    Ernst: It’s an adjustment, but after a couple of games it’s OK. We hit with them at school and I’ve got one of the Phoenix bats that I brought with me from OSU. I don’t want to break it, though (laughing).

    PPM: Are you watching the College World Series?

    Ernst: I am.

    [​IMG]
    New positions…Ernst came to Springfield “to learn to play as many positions as possible. Any place I can play is fine.”

    PPM: What did you think last night when you saw how Michigan played against that same Vanderbilt team that you saw in the regional tourney?

    Ernst: I think that it proves to all of us that we can play at that high level, against that kind of team. We handled ourselves well against Michigan this year (won three of four meetings), and when you know that you know you’re just that close to winning a national championship. Taking what happened last night, and knowing how we played against them in the spring, it gives us confidence that we can play at that level. Obviously, Michigan’s got great pitching, but we’ve got a lot of great pitching coming back, so we’ll have the ability to do what they’re doing.

    PPM: As a freshman this year, was there a time or a pitcher you saw when you thought you were overmatched. I think any would-be recruit coming in would wonder about that…because you saw some really good arms?

    Ernst: I never felt overmatched, but when it comes to arms Vanderbilt’s Friday night guy (Fellows) was tough, and that was a tough environment to play in. But any pitcher has to make his pitches, and we got to Fellows early in that game, until he started throwing strikes later and mixing the fastball and slider better.

    [​IMG]PPM: What are your goals for fall ball, when you get back to campus with this summer’s experience under your belt?

    Ernst: I’ll do what I did last year. I’m going to go to compete for a spot, wherever that this. If it’s in the outfield, that’s great. I know we have our entire infield coming back (including Noah West, rehabbing from knee surgery). So I have to show that I can compete and show that I can produce at a lot of positions. And I’m fine with that because the competition here is about the same as you see in the Big Ten on some days, on others it might be a little different…there are some good arms here. Mostly, it’s just the chance to play consistently and and get more at bats. I’m really getting back into my swing.

    (Ed. Note: It wasn’t a good night for the Kings, team-wise, on Tuesday, giving up six runs in the second inning on their way to an eventual 13-2 deficit. But in his first at bat in the second inning Marcus Ernst lined the second pitch he saw into right field for a single. It looked like…he had gotten back into his swing!)

    BEALS ELEVATES DAN DELUCIA TO PITCHING COACH
    SHARE
    • Facebook, Twitter and Instagram | DeLucia Bio

      COLUMBUS, Ohio – Dan DeLucia, who has served as volunteer assistant coach for the Ohio State baseball team for the last six seasons, has been elevated to pitching coach for the Buckeyes, head coach Greg Beals announced Tuesday.

      “Dan DeLucia has been with us the past six years and has been an integral part of the development of our program, particularly the pitching staff,” Beals said. “His knowledge and ability to communicate and relate to the players make him a great coach. Coach DeLucia is ready for this promotion.”

      DeLucia has been a part of the Buckeye coaching staff that has guided to the team to three NCAA Regional appearances in the last four years as well as two Big Ten Tournament titles. This past season, he helped guide the youngest pitching staff in the nation to a postseason title run as the Ohio State arms shattered the school record for strikeouts in a season, concluding the year with 583. DeLucia also took over the first base coaching duties during the team’s title run in 2019.

      [​IMG]
      “Being part of the Ohio State baseball program has had a huge influence on the person and coach I am today,” DeLucia said. “I am honored to lead, develop and inspire our current and future Buckeyes and am committed to the success of the program. My family and I want to thank Coach Beals, the athletics administration and Buckeye Nation for this opportunity.”

      DeLucia, who concluded his Buckeye career in 2008 after earning four letters, was a first team All-Big Ten selection in 2006. For his Buckeye career, the three-time team captain posted a 24-13 record and 3.91 ERA in 317.1 innings pitched. He started 52 times and limited opposing batters to a .263 batting average. DeLucia ranks near the top of many of the Buckeyes’ pitching records, sitting fifth with 317.1 innings pitched, tied for 11th with 24 wins and tied for 16th with a 3.91 ERA.

      After graduating with a degree in finance, DeLucia was a 35th-round selection of the Detroit Tigers in 2008 and went on to pitch in three minor league seasons with the Detroit Tigers and Toronto Blue Jays organizations.

      Dan and his wife, Carly, reside in Upper Arlington and have three children, James, Gracie and Luke.

      “This has been a challenging time with the departure of Mike Stafford,” Beals said. “The one shining light has been the opportunity it brings Dan DeLucia. I am excited about the future of our program and seeing Coach DeLucia take on this new role.”

    KIRBY PELLANT NAMED VOLUNTEER ASSISTANT COACH
    SHARE
    • Facebook, Twitter and Instagram | Pellant Bio

      COLUMBUS, Ohio – Kirby Pellant, who spent the 2019 season as Ohio State’s quality control coordinator, has been named the Buckeyes’ volunteer assistant coach, head coach Greg Beals announced Friday. Pellant, who played two seasons for the Buckeyes from 2012-13, helped the Buckeyes to an NCAA Regional appearance and Big Ten Tournament title in 2019.

      “I am very excited to have Kirby back in uniform for the Buckeyes,” Beals said. “Kirby brings great baseball insight plus an energy and passion for both the game and Ohio State University. Kirby will work directly with the infielders on defense while serving as the first base coach on offense. Kirby Pellant complements our coaching staff well and is a great addition.”

      Pellant, who was the Buckeyes’ student assistant coach during the 2015 campaign, was a 2013 first team All-Big Ten selection, betting .301 during his senior season with 20 runs scored, five doubles, three triples, two home runs, 15 RBI and 11 walks. He also had a. 991 fielding percentage in the Buckeye infield. In two seasons, Pellant swiped 43 stolen bases, which ranks 11th in program history. His 31 stolen bases during the 2012 season ranks sixth in the OSU record book.

      [​IMG]
      “I’m grateful to be in the position to help our student-athletes on and off the field,” Pellant said. “My goal is to construct relationships, build character and continue to raise the bar for Buckeye baseball. I can’t thank Coach Beals and the University enough for this opportunity. It has been my home since the first day I stepped on campus in 2011 and I’m excited to continue to help this program and its student-athletes succeed.”

      Pellant was drafted in the 26th round of the 2013 MLB Draft by the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and played in 46 professional games. A native of Chandler, Ariz., Pellant graduated from Ohio State in 2015 with a degree in criminology.
