16 Jan WA To Retire Baseball’s #3, Worn By Michael A. Taylor ’09
Westminster Academy Alumni Association and the Athletic Department will honor our World Series Champion, Michael A. Taylor ’09, on Saturday, February 1. Join the WA community for the Winter Court Game and a pre-game ceremony at 6:30 p.m. as we retire baseball jersey #3. The Alumni Association inducted Michael into Westminster Academy’s Athletic Hall of Honor in 2015. However, with his recent World Series accomplishment with the Washington Nationals, he deserves this highest honor. Never again will another student-athlete represent WA on the baseball field with #3.
The only other jersey WA retired was #12 for Danny Kanell ’92, the former NFL quarterback. Therefore, Michael A. Taylor’s #3 will soon join #12 as the only two numbers to ever be retired in school history. Retiring athletic numbers is our way to acknowledge the excitement and support we have for these two professional athletes who model our Portrait of a Graduate through excellence in athletics.
We hope you’ll join us for this special ceremony and the Winter Court Game on Saturday, February 1, at 6:30 p.m.
