GW Baseball's LeJeune Named to NCBWA Stopper of the Year Watch List
Senior Pitcher Closing in on Career Saves Record
Feb. 11, 2014
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - George Washington senior right-handed pitcher Craig LeJeune is one of 50 Division I players to be named to the initial watch list for the 10th Annual National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association Stopper of the Year Award, given to the top relief pitcher in the NCAA, the organization announced on Tuesday.
LeJeune tied for third in the Atlantic 10 last season with 10 saves while earning three wins in 27 appearances. He posted an ERA of 3.41 while striking out 31 batters against just eight walks. His 10 saves stand as the second-most in a single season in program history and put him seven behind career saves leader Bryan Beggs '01 (17).
The Bristol, Conn., native joins Saint Louis' Matt Eckleman and Rhode Island's Brad Applin as the only pitchers from the Atlantic 10 on the watch list.
The initial list will be updated with a mid-season release the week of April 21 to include the national saves leaders. At the conclusion of the regular season, the Division I national saves leader and four other relief-pitching standouts will be selected as finalists and announced on Wednesday, June 4, prior to start of NCAA Super Regional tournament competition.
The NCBWA's All-America Committee will select the winner, with this year's recipient to be announced during the 2014 College World Series.
The NCBWA, founded in 1962, presents the Dick Howser Trophy to the nation's top player. It also selects All-America Teams for all Divisions, a Division I Freshman All-American team, Division I and III Players of the Week, Division I District Players of the Year and Division III Players of the Year.
