Dante Wright Commits to MAC Baseball
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Wednesday, November 27, 2019
Congratulations to the Wright family on their son Dante's recent commitment to the Mineral Area College Cardinals in Park Hills, Missouri. They compete at the NJCAA DI level. The college was founded in 1922 as Flat River Junior College but changed it's name in 1965 and has over 11,000 alumni.


Last year Dante's talents allowed him to compete at the 2018 ‎Canada Cup for Ontario where he came away with a National championship gold medal.  His outstanding arm strength and power bat from the left side of the plate has also been a big part of several Terrier championships over the past two seasons. In addition to those successes Dante was  selected to play at the Junior Sunbelt and  T12 in 2018 and 2019. 

Over the past six years the Cardinals have had 17 players move on to Division I schools. Their 2019 record was 32-17.  

Good luck Dante!
