Brooks Earns Second Team All-America Honors From the ABCA

14BrooksABCA

Catawba College’s Craig Brooks (Monroe, NC/Parkwood HS) became a unanimous All-American as he was named second team by the American Baseball Coaches Association on Wednesday.  Brooks is the first Catawba player to appear on all three All-America teams since both Ryan Query and Craige Lyerly achieved the honor in 2009.

Brooks, a junior starting pitcher, had earlier earned second team All-America honors from Daktronics and was a third team selection by the NCBWA.  Brooks finished the 2014 campaign with a 12-3 record and a 2.32 ERA.

With only the games remaining at the College World Series, Brooks was still tied for the most wins in NCAA II.  He also ranked 10th with just 5.74 hits allowed per nine innings (57 in 89 and a third innings) and was sixth in total strikeouts with 104.
