Nick Sinacola: Balancing business classes and baseball

Nick Sinacola, a baseball pitcher from North Attleboro, Massachusetts, found at home at the University of Maine and the Maine Business School.

The 2021 America East Pitcher of the Year had a banner season as a junior. In July 2021, Sinacola made history when the San Francisco Giants signed him in the 7th round pick of the MLB draft. It was the fourth-highest selection from UMaine in the past three decades. He was also the fourth Black Bear named a Collegiate Baseball First Team All-American.

While he left UMaine to join the Single A-Affiliate San Jose Giants, he hasn’t stopped learning. Sinacola moved into the MBS online degree program and continues pursuing his Bachelor of Science in Business Administration on the road.
