Anthony Volpe '19 Returns To Delbarton, Receives Delbarton Medal
Jared Lowy

At today's morning meeting, Delbarton alum and current New York Yankees shortstop Anthony Volpe '19 returned to Delbarton to receive Delbarton's highest honor, the Delbarton Medal.

The 2019 Player of the Year, Yankees 30th overall pick, and 2023 Gold Glove winner surprised the entire Delbarton student body after a very inspiring and moving introduction by our Athletic Director and baseball coach Dr. Tony Negrin. Negrin spoke about Anthony's accomplishments both with the Yankees and at Delbarton, on the field and in the classroom.  After being awarded the medal by Fr. Michael Tidd, O.S.B., Anthony addressed the student body in the FAC thanking them for their support throughout all four levels from Tampa to the Bronx.  "No matter where I played, whether it was the Bronx, Camden Yards, or even Fenway Park, I would always hear 'Go Green Wave'," said Volpe.

Volpe finished his first complete season with the Yankees in 2023, playing 159 games at shortstop, becoming the first Yankee rookie to ever eclipse 20 home runs and 20 stolen bases in one season.  He also won the American League Gold Glove Award for his play at shortstop this season, the first Yankee shortstop to achieve this since 1980.
Before going to check out the new Pizzo Family Field House, Volpe posed for a photo with the entire Delbarton Student body in the FAC.

All of us thank Anthony for coming home to Delbarton for a visit and congratulate him on earning the Delbarton Medal.
