What a week for the baseball team. On Saturday they clinched a berth into the NCAA Tournament after beating Pitt-Greensburg in the AMCC Championship and today they got eleven people on the AMCC All-Conference Team and three more on the ECAC All-Star Team.
Junior second baseman Colin Feikles became the first baseball player to win the conference's Player of the Year and Chase Rowe earned his third Coach of the Year Award. Seven made first team including Feikles, starting pitcher Cole Lentz, first baseman Brian Tougher, third baseman Colin Williamson, shortstop Sean Lubin, left fielder Franzee Barlamas, and right fielder John Watson. Starting pitcher Tyler Ferguson was a second team selection for the second straight year while outfielder Luis Navedo and designated hitter Alex Simone were third team honorees.
Barlamas also made the ECAC All-Star first team while Tougher and Lubin were on the second team.
The Redhawks led the AMCC in almost every offensive category including batting average (.353), runs (380), hits (494), doubles (109), triples (33), and RBIs (349). They also led the nation in slugging percentage (.527) and triples, and finished in the top 6 in doubles, batting average, and runs.
Player of the Year Colin Feikles and second teamer Tyler Ferguson finished among the nation's leaders as Feikles ranked fifth in slugging percentage, thirteenth in batting average, and twenty-first in RBI, while Ferguson ranked second in strikeouts and fifth in wins.
