SHU Tops NCBWA Atlantic Region Preseason Poll; Has Five Named to Preseason All Region Team
The preseason honors continue to roll in for the Seton Hill Baseball team. The Griffins are coming off a 41-17 season and a their first trip to the NCAA Division II Baseball Championships in Cary, NC. Seton Hill returns most of its lineup and pitching staff from 2014 so the honors are not shocking. The Griffins were the top team and selected first in the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA) Division II Preseason Atlantic Regional Poll. Five members of the Griffin team were selected by the NCBWA as Preseason All Region selections. They include junior starter Mike Bittel, junior closer Jesse Cooper, redshirt senior second baseman Pat McCarthy, senior outfielder Cody Herald and senior third baseman Nick Sell. Bittel, Cooper, McCarthy and Herald were named to the first team, with Sell being a second team selection.
