February 17, 2021

SCHAUMBURG, Ill. – Former Marian University baseball student-athlete Ty Peccioli has signed a professional contract with the Schaumburg Boomers of the independent Frontier League.

“We are extremely proud of Ty for signing a professional deal but more so for the person that he has become,” commented head baseball coach Jordan Baitinger.  “He is indicative of what our program is about.  He has become growth-minded and relentless in the pursuit of his goals.  We have a lot of love for Ty and we are very excited to see him live out his dream.”

Peccioli was a member of the Sabre baseball program from 2016-19 and became a major staple in the starting rotation.  In his Marian career, Peccioli pitched 39 times making 22 starts with nine wins, a save, and two complete games.  He struck out a total of 144 hitters during his career, 10th on the all-time strikeout list, over 155.1 innings for an 8.34 strikeouts per nine innings rate.

“It’s a great feeling to fulfill this dream, it’s everything I’ve been working towards since I was little,” commented Peccioli.  “Without my parents, coaches, and teammates along the way, I wouldn’t have been able to make it this far.  As for myself, I’m focused on getting better every day and chasing new goals.”

He began his Sabre career as a swingman for the first two seasons where he pitched in 21 games making nine starts.  His junior season he began as an arm out of the bullpen before he transitioned to the rotation and immediately flourished.  In his first start of the 2018 season, Peccioli led Marian to a 6-1 win over Aurora where he went 8.0 innings allowing just six hits, one earned run, and striking out 12 Spartans.  His 12 punch outs are tied for the fifth-most in a single game in Sabre baseball history.  He went on to earn two more victories in three starts that season and never allowed more than three earned runs while pitching at least 5.1 innings.  He finished the season with a 2.56 earned-run average and a 7.91 strikeout per nine innings average, the highest in his career at that point.

With an established role in the starting rotation, Peccioli dominated his senior season starting in nine games with a 2.92 earned-run average over 61.2 innings of work.  He also struck out 66 hitters, tied for seventh-most in a single season in Marian baseball history, for a 9.63 strikeouts per nine innings average.  During his eight regular season starts, Peccioli pitched at least 6.0 innings and never allowed more than three earned runs.  He opened his senior season with a win over Bethany Lutheran where he allowed five hits over 6.0 innings with a season-high 11 punch outs.  His most dominating performance of the season came at Benedictine where he threw a complete game allowing just one run with nine punch outs to earn his third victory of the season.

“Besides giving me the best four years of my life, Marian was so helpful to me in my playing career,” commented Peccioli.  “My coaches, Jordan Baitinger and Bryan Burgert, always believed in me and pushed me when I needed it the most.  They taught me how to breathe, work hard, and just have more confidence in myself.  Being able to grow and get better with my teammates are moments I will cherish forever.  Marian gave me a second family.”

The Schaumburg Boomers were established in 2012 and have won three Frontier League titles in that short time including back-to-back titles in 2013 and 2014.  The Boomers became the first Frontier League organization to win the league championship three times with their most recent title in 2017.  The Boomers play their home games at Wintrust Field in Schaumburg, Ill., and have been in the upper echelon of attendance amongst the league since their inception.  For more information on the Schaumburg Boomers please visit https://www.boomersbaseball.com/.
