Terrier NCAA Teams’ Pitchers
(Left to Right: Tim Masick, Herb Witten, Nick Stipanovich, Jack Mara)
Nick, a 6’ 4” right-handed flame-thrower was one of three pitchers who led BU into the 1968 and 1969 NCAA baseball tournaments. The other two elite Terriers hurlers, Tim Masick and Jack Mara are also BU Baseball Hall of Famers. These three made up the finest trio of hurlers to play on the same team in BU Baseball history.
Drafted by the St. Louis Cardinals in the 30th round of the 1968 MLB June Amateur Draft and again by the Cardinals in the 5th round of the 1969 MLB January Draft-Secondary Phase, Nick joined teammate Tim Masick who also signed a professional contract with the Cardinals.
