Nick V Bound for D1 Niagara
It’s no secret, Covid has impacted our day to day lives – and especially those of young athletes.  For Nick Veselinovic, Covid was not going to derail his goal of playing college baseball in the US.
After a 4 years in the Selects program, the Left-handed pitcher from Lasalle is headed to the University of Niagara, where he will join the Purple Eagles Division 1 program.

We had the chance to connect with Nick, who will be majoring in Biology, prior to him heading to school.

WS: What was it that attracted you to Niagara?

NV: It is a smaller school, with a great history of academic programs. I wanted the chance to get the “college experience” but in a smaller setting. I also like that it is not too far from home (4 hours), so my family can travel up to see some games.


WS: On the baseball side of things, what did you like about Niagara?

NV: The development of their pitchers is fantastic. And when looking at the history of MLB drafted players out of NU, the majority were pitchers.


WS: What are your thoughts when looking back at your time with the Selects?

NV: I loved the coaching staffs at each level.  Each staff was unique in what they brought to the table. They not only challenged me to develop as a player, but they also helped me develop as an adult. They all pushed me further and helped me realize my potential.
