|Title:||Class of 2006|
Anthony Shooshan '51 was an outstanding pitcher and second baseman for the first baseball teams at Worcester State under Head Coach and Hall of Famer Jack Eager. In a time of short seasons, Shooshan won an impressive 7 games in 1950 for Worcester State. He finished his career with an impressive 12-6 overall record on the mound.
Shooshan was a Worcester native and an All-City player at Worcester South High School before coming to Worcester State. In 1996, in recognition of his place among the greats of Worcester State's baseball past, the annual team award given to the top Worcester State College pitcher was named the "Tony Shooshan Award". Shooshan is now the 26th baseball player to be selected to the Worcester State Hall of Fame and joins Coach Eager as the only members of the initial Lancer baseball teams.
It is with great honor that we induct Anthony Shooshan into the Worcester State College Athletic Hall of Fame.
