Matt Monahan’s college decision was an easy one. St. Xavier was the only school to offer him a baseball scholarship.

“I called coach Rocco [Mossuto], came and visited and they gave me a chance,” Monahan said. “I was going to go to [Joliet Junior College], but then I got this offer. I figured you only get one chance to go to college and the chance to play baseball at a school like this was a really cool opportunity.”
