Bahamian D’Juan Seymour, the son of Arthur ‘Baldy’ Seymour from the famous Seymour family of the early days of baseball in this country, is making his own mark as a freshman on the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) D-III college baseball circuit. The freshman is having an outstanding season for the State University of New York (SUNY) Maritime College Privateers.

Seymour is currently leading his college team with a .347 batting average. Just recently, the 5’10” 195-pound catcher earned Skyline Conference ‘Rookie of the Week’ honors.

During that week, Seymour went 5-for-11 at the plate, collecting three doubles and a home-run in three games. He drove in five runs and scored seven times during that span, and added a pair of walks. In addition to leading the team in hitting, Seymour is also leading the team with a .510 slugging percentage.

Seymour plays third base for the Privateers, and also sees action as the team’s designated hitter. With his recent power display, he helped the Privateers earn the fifth seed in this week’s Skyline Championships. SUNY Maritime will start the Skyline Conference Tournament on their home field, Alfano Field in Patchogue, New York, this afternoon against the St. Joseph’s Golden Eagles.

Seymour played his high school baseball for Rabun Gap in Rabun County, Georgia, and locally, he is a product of the Freedom Farm Baseball League.

The Bahamas Baseball Federation (BBF) congratulates Seymour on his recent success at SUNY Maritime College.
