Northport resident Greg Polli was one of seven Class of 2013 inductees selected Friday for Hofstra University's Sports Hall of Fame.
Polli, a baseball player from 1983-86, still holds the school's single-season slugging percentage record, a .950 mark in 1985. He was named an All-American that season after batting .496.
Polli, a Hicksville native, ranks seventh all-time in NCAA Division I with a career .416 batting average.
He was East Coast Conference Player of the Year in 1985 and finished his career with 140 RBIs.
The group will be inducted at the 2013 Athletics Hall of Fame Luncheon at the Hofstra University Club on April 13 at 4 p.m.
"It is with great pleasure that we announce the Hofstra Athletics Hall of Fame Class of 2013," Hofstra Athletic Director Jeffrey A. Hathaway said. "The seven individuals and two teams embody Hofstra Pride and further enhance an already-impressive Hall of Fame membership. The accomplishments of this group is something that all current and future Hofstra student-athletes should strive to emulate, as they truly represent Hofstra’s best of the best.”
