Senior (5-10, 175) had a big senior season for the Crusaders, batting a sizzling .449 with four home runs and 30 RBI. He led Brother Martin in home runs and also led the team in doubles (8) and triples (4). Senior also stole 13 bases.
In one notable performance on 2021, Senior homered twice in a 20-8 win at Holy Cross on April 23 to conclude the regular season.
“The biggest thing that stands out is that his best baseball is still ahead of him,” Brother Martin coach Jeff Lupo said. “Cameron is a young kid but he is an extremely hard worker. He is versatile, able to play a few outfield spots and he can flat-out hit. He led us in virtually every offensive category. He is a high character young man who works extremely hard.”
Senior becomes the second Brother Martin standout Brother Martin to sign with Delgado, joining Tyler Velino.

Velino (6-1, 185) was a solid two-way player for the Crusaders, posting a 3.71 ERA in 10 mound appearances while batting .348 with a home run and 18 RBI and 15 stolen bases while playing third base.
“Tyler was exceptional for us this past season,” Lupo said. “He will be a good fit and a good player for Coach (Joe) Scheuermann.”
Both Senior and Velino are playing this summer for Gibbs Construction, a local independent-based American Legion team coached by Danny Riehm.
