Impact Of A Scholarship: Kyle Convissar

Convissar played for the Terps from 2011-14, primarily as their second baseman. The 6-foot-2, 204-pounder posted a career .278 batting average along with 155 hits, 86 RBIs, and 88 runs in 181 games. He was also named Academic All-ACC several times, including Academic All-American as a senior.

Most importantly, Convissar was one of the senior captains of the 2014 team, which set a program record with 40 wins and made its first-ever Super Regional and NCAA Tournament appearance since 1971. Convissar says his fondest memory of his time at Maryland was beating South Carolina to advance to the NCAA Super Regional.

“That was definitely a massive highlight for me,” Convissar said. “During my time at Maryland, we took the program from the lower end of the ACC to competing for a spot in Omaha by playing Virginia in a Super Regional.”

Convissar also mentioned the atmosphere for home games in College Park as one of the things he misses.

“One of the amazing things about Maryland baseball is that the field is literally in the middle of campus, right next to Stamp (Student Union),” Convissar said. “In between classes, students can walk right into the stadium to watch a game .”
