This kid can hit! Let’s hear it of lifelong Southie resident (and my brother) Jamie Dahill for being inducted into the Roger Williams University Athletic Hall of Fame! Playing baseball for the Roger Williams Hawks, Jamie finished his career with an impressive 214 career hits – a school record that is still held to this day! In addition, he’s the only player in the history of Roger Williams history with over 200 hits. According to the Roger Williams University Athletics website, Jamie played and started in 172 career games, also both school records. He holds the RWU all-time mark in at-bats (628), doubles (47) and sacrifice flies (11). He was a three-time All-Commonwealth Coast Conference player. In 2008, he helped the Hawks win a school-record 34 games and clinch the CCC regular season title. In addition, he helped guide RWU to the 2008 ECAC Division III New England Baseball Championship. Holy Moly! Jamie graduated from Roger Williams back in 2009.
He started off his baseball career playing in South Boston Little League for Hub Video. He went on to Southie Babe Ruth and then Senior Babe Ruth. Jamie also played for the the Catholic Memorial Knights for three years. You can currently check out his mad batting skills at M Street Park during the Firefighters summer softball league. Jamie plays for Broadway.
