Baseball catcher Danaher a nominee for prestigious Johnny Bench Award
Binghamton senior catcher Mike Danaher was named to the initial watch list for the 2013 Johnny Bench Award presented by BaseballSavings.com, the Greater Wichita Area Sports Commission announced. The award was created in 2000 to honor college baseball’s top NCAA Division I catcher.
Danaher is a four-year letter winner, two-year starter and 2013 team captain. An honors student with an overflowing resume off the field, Danaher is arguably the top defensive catcher in the America East. He is the only catcher from the conference and one of a small group of Northeast catchers on the elite Bench Award list.
