Canisius College baseball coach Mike McRae was named one of the most influential Canadians in baseball by the Canadian Baseball Network. McRae, who was ranked for the sixth consecutive year, comes in at No. 35 on the list of 100. 

Here is an excerpt about McRae from the rankings:

"Taking over a team that won four games in 2004, McRae not only turned the corner with the Griffins program, but he drove around the traffic circle, went to the second light and turned left on the green. He guided Canisius to his first Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference tourney and a berth in the NCAA field this spring. McRae has a 217-132 (.622) record in the last six seasons and he’s 264-241 in his nine seasons at Canisius."

The annual list is compiled by Bob Elliott of the Canadian Baseball Network. Elliott has covered baseball for more than 30 years and also writes for the Toronto Sun.

Elliott was the recipient of the 2012 J.G. Taylor Spink Award by the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. The Spink Award is the highest award given by the Baseball Writers' Association of America
