He was a baseball scholarship player at Division I Central Connecticut State University while CCSU won its league title twice and played in two NCAA regional tournaments.
Crossman still holds the CCSU pitching appearance record for a single season.
In the Tri-State League, he is a two-time Cy Young Award winner (2001 and 2007) and the No. 1 overall draft selection of the Stan Musial tournament from 2000 through 2005 until Winsted qualified in 2006.
Crossman recorded three no-hitters in his Tri-State career, once striking out 20 batters in a game.
He was the starting pitcher when the Tri-State League all-stars played the Russian National Team in 2010.
Crossman is currently head baseball coach and a teacher at The Gilbert School, retiring from Tri-State at 30 with a torn labrum in his shoulder.
