D-Mo Named NCBWA All-American
Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns baseball fans felt it every time they saw Dylan Moore come in from the bullpen.
The Ragin' Cajuns star reliever, who broke his own school record for saves during the 2016 season, has been named a second-team All-American by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers' Association (NCBWA.)
The Hughes Springs, Texas native finished with a 6-1 record on the mound in his sophomore season, with 14 saves and an 0.91 ERA. He walked just 15 and struck out 59 in 49.2 innings. He allowed only five earned runs all season. Opponents batted just .149 against him during the season.
Only one other player from a Louisiana school, Southeastern first baseman Jameson Fisher, was named to the three team squad, being selected to the second team.
Sun Belt Player of the Year Ryan Scott of Little Rock was also named to the second team, while SBC Pitcher of the Year Kevin Hill of South Alabama, was named to the third team.
Coastal Carolina, a team which will join the Sun Belt next season, placed four on the squad: OF Connor Owings and DH G. K. Young were first team selections, while 3B Zach Remillard and RP Mike Morrison were named to the third team.
