Garrett Cortright

Garrett Cortright enters his second season as a graduate assistant with the Canisius baseball program.

The former Canisius pitcher had a stellar three-year career with the Griffs, which spanned from 2011-13. During that span, Cortright made 41 starts compiling a 3.40 ERA and 181 strikeouts in 275.2 innings of work. Cortright was named an All-MAAC First Team selection in 2013, a year after being tabbed to the All-MAAC Second Team. He also was an All-MAAC Tournament Team selection in each of his three years with the Griffs as a player.

Cortright ranks in the top 10 in multiple pitching categories in Canisius history, finishing sixth in lowest ERA, games won, games started, and innings pitched. He also ranks ninth in strikeouts.

After his time with Canisius as a player, Cortright was drafted by the Baltimore Orioles in 2013. He spent five seasons in the professional ranks of baseball, reaching the Triple-A level in 2016 with the Norfolk Tides. He spent the 2017 season with the Miami Marlins organization before retiring.

Following his retirement from professional baseball, Cortright coached for Full Circuit Power, a Buffalo-based travel baseball organization, with their 13U squad. He also served as the pitching coach at nearby Medaille College during the pandemic-shortened 2020 season.
