David DiGangi '94

Sport Played: Baseball

Year Inducted: 2009 (12th induction class)

Accomplishments: A corner infielder and pitcher, DiGangi turned in a spectacular four-year career for the Babson baseball program. He graduated in 1994 with eight Babson career records to his credit, and he still ranks in the program's top seven with a .355 batting average (fifth), six triples (seventh), 16 home runs (fifth), 99 runs batted in (eighth), a .550 slugging percentage (fifth), and six saves (fourth). While his first three years on the diamond were stellar, his senior campaign stands out as one of the greatest all-around seasons in Babson baseball history. That spring, DiGangi batted .445 and slugged an incredible .742-both of which still rank second among the program's single-season leaders-while also saving a single-season record six games on the mound. As a result, he was named All-Conference First Team and All-New England First Team, and was chosen as the Constitution Athletic Conference Player of the Year. During his career, Babson posted a fantastic record of 75-54-the greatest four-year stretch in program history at the time-including a school-record 22 victories in 1994. In addition, the Beavers earned four consecutive ECAC New England Tournament bids-the first four postseason appearances in program history.
