Toth caps off college career with honors

Lorain native Anthony Toth (St. Ignatius) just finished his college career at Michigan, where he played baseball for four years and capped it off being named with Michigan’s Sportsmanship Award honors.

Toth, who played in 39 games before an injury cut his season short, hit .292 with 24 doubles, four triples, a home run and 71 RBIs in his Wolverine career. Toth helped Michigan to a 2007 Nashville Regional title and hit .313 and .309 in 2009 and 2010.

He was named to the All-Big Ten Tournament team in 2010, starting all 57 games in the middle infield that season. He had 10 multi-hit games this season, driving in three runs in a win over Iowa on April 24 and had the game-winning double in the Winthorp win on March 12.

Toth graduated in August of 2010 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in sport management from the School of Kinesiology.

The student-athletes chosen for the Sportsmanship Award are individuals who have distinguished themselves through sportsmanship and ethical behavior. These student-athletes must also be in good academic standing and have demonstrated good citizenship outside of the sports-competition setting.
