GREENSBORO, N.C. – The honors continue to roll in for Salisbury University pitcher Connor Reeves, who was named the American Baseball Coaches Association's National Division III Pitcher of the Year on Monday, the first player in program history to earn the award.
Reeves led Salisbury to a 34-12 campaign in 2018, which culminated in a Capital Athletic Conference championship and a trip to the NCAA tournament. Reeves made 20 appearances in 2018, starting 12 games while putting together a 14-3 record, breaking the Salisbury and CAC record for single-season wins, and leading the nation in that category.
The Bel Air, Maryland native also led the nation in WHIP (walks and hits allowed per inning) with a 0.73 mark, ranked fourth in strikeouts with 113, and seventh with a 1.19 ERA during his senior season.
Reeves' honor marks the second consecutive year that a Sea Gulls has been named one of the top players in the nation, as Pete Grasso was named the ABCA and D3baseball.com National Player of the Year following the 2017 season.
