Cajuns Place Two on All-Louisiana Squad
It was a banner year for baseball in the state of Louisiana.
And, it showed on the All-Louisiana Baseball Team released Sunday by the Louisiana Sports Writers Association.
Two Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns, outfielder Kyle Clement and relief specialist Dylan Moore,, were named to the team from a Cajuns' squad that won 42 games and hosted an NCAA Regional.
It should come as no surprise that the nation's leading hitter, Jameson Fisher of Southeastern Louisiana (.437-11-66,), was named the HItter of the Year. Fisher also led the nation in on-base percentage (.564)
The Southland Conference also claimed the Pitcher of the Year, as Northwestern State's Adam Oller received the honor. Oller finished the season 8-1 with a sparkling 1.23 ERA. He went undefeated during the regular season.
Ross Massey of Tulane (10-3, 2.29) was named the Freshman of the Year, while Jeremy Montalbano (.269-12-45) of Tulane was named the top newcomer.
Greg Goff of Louisiana Tech was named the state's Coach of the Year after leading the Bulldogs to their first NCAA Berth in nearly 30 years. Goff has since taken the head coaching job at Alabama.
Moore, a sophomore from Hughes Springs, Texas, broke his own school record with 14 saves in 2015. He finished 6-1 with an 0.91 ERA. Clement hit 353 to lead the Cajuns, with four homers and 25 RBI. He missed 18 games due to injury.
