Burlington’s Matt Duffy has been named to the Canadian Baseball Network’s collegiate all-star team.

Duffy was named the first team right-handed pitcher by the Canadian website, which annually recognizes the best Canadians in college baseball.

The Canisius University pitcher led the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) in strikeouts with 119 over 80 and two-thirds innings. He struck out a career-high 14 batters against St. Peter’s on April 28, allowing just one hit over seven innings.

The third-year pitcher allowed just 64 hits and 28 walks while going 6-3 with a 4.13 earned-run average.

Duffy, who was selected by the Boston Red Sox in the fourth round of the 2023 Major League draft, has a 17-5 record with a 3.86 ERA over his collegiate career while holding opponents to a .217 batting average. He is also the school’s all-time leader in strikeouts with 278.

The Assumption Catholic Secondary School grad was named to the MAAC all-rookie team in 2021 and was a conference first-team all-star in 2022 and 2023. He was also the MAAC championship most valuable player in 2022. He was also named the Canisius male athlete of the year for 2023.
