He continues to play baseball in leagues and remains close with many of the friends he made at PCP&S.
A standout player for the Devils baseball team from 1979-1982, Burman garnered a 54-38 record and played in 92 games. He hit a career-high .354 his sophomore season, as he closed his career with a .306 average in 317 at bats.
Steve is listed in the Devils archives as No. 3 in career stolen bases with 33 all-time in 37 attempts. He also sits at No. 17 in total hits with 97 and No. 20 in total bases with 124. In his final two seasons, Steve earned All-NAIA District 19 honors his junior season and co-MVP in his final season.

He is the proud father of five children. Steve, his wife Heidi, and two youngest children Max and Jacob, live in Newtown Square, PA and Avalon, NJ.
As the little league ‘league MVP’, I was best in my age group as a kid, so I’ll take credit for setting an early standard of excellence for my teammate Steve Burman. I’ll call him a late bloomer as he took it to a whole different level of excellence long after I stopped playing baseball. Congrats Steve.
