Mike Mauri is a senior from Massapequa, N.Y. He plays first base, and led the team in batting average last season at a .325 clip. On Tuesday, April 9, he drove in a career high five runs in Fordham’s victory over Rutgers. Mauri will complete his finance major this spring, but not before finishing one final season at Houlihan Park.

The Fordham Ram: What is the most exciting moment of your career?

Mike Mauri: Um, I would say when Brian Kownacki jumped over the catcher in 2011. I was on the bench, but I was pretty excited.

TFR: That definitely went viral. I saw it.

MM: [Laughs] Yeah.

TFR: What are your hopes for the rest of this season?

MM: I mean, it’s been rough in early conference, but I hope we can come back and go on a tear, and hopefully make the NCAA Tournament.

TFR: What has been your favorite year on the team so far?

MM: Probably last year because it was my best year. It was my first year actually playing every day, and I had a good year, so that was fun.

TFR: What was your best game here?

MM: Best game…I don’t know if I can pick one. I mean, two days ago, three days ago, I had 5 RBIs for a career high, so I guess that was the best.

TFR: What has been your favorite road trip?

MM: We’ve been all over. I mean Richmond’s fun, Charlotte’s fun, but I wasn’t playing then. But if I were to give you one place I really enjoyed playing at, probably Richmond. I’ve been down there twice in my four year career. Last year we actually had a big battle with them, so it was fun down there.

TFR: The weather is nice and warm down there.

MM: Yeah, the weather is nice.

TFR: And what are your plans after graduation?

MM: After I graduate, I’ll probably be living at home, probably working.
