Program History

In 1986, St. Vincent-St. Mary High School was the first Summit County high school to win a state championship in baseball. Three years later, the Fighting Irish added another state title banner to the gymnasium. Today, the Fighting Irish look to return to the tradition of excellence that STVM baseball had throughout the 1980s. The Irish currently have no league affiliation, but will be looking to create/join one in the near future. Through hard work and dedication, the Fighting Irish are on the correct path toward re-establishing program success.
