About this Article
When Gunnar Kay was a freshman, St. Viator baseball coach Mike Manno believed the young pitcher might end up at the Division I level of college baseball. "Because of his great mechanics we thought he had a chance," Manno said. "And he comes from a family of D-1 players." Sure enough, Gunnar will become the third sibling from the Kay house to play at the top collegiate level. He has accepted a scholarship to Dallas Baptist University in Texas. He becomes the seventh Lion to commit to a D-I school in seven years and eight other players from the school's baseball program have gone on to D-II, III or junior college.
