Tommy Parsons Earns Recognition from the National Collegiate Baseball Writers' Association

NCBWA release (Word)

NORTH MANCHESTER, Ind.--Junior right-hander Tommy Parsons (New Albany, Ohio) of Adrian College Wednesday was named one of two honorable mention picks for the National Collegiate Baseball Writers' Association Division III Pitcher of the Week, for the period of Feb. 27-March 5.

Earlier this week, Parsons also was chosen to the D3baseball.com Team of the Week and the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association Pitcher of the Week.  

Parsons, a business management major, had a 1-1 record while compiling a 1.80 earned-run average and 18 strikeouts in 15 innings of work. He did not issue a single walk. His highlight game was a two-hit shutout over Transylvania, 3-0, in which he struck out a MIAA season- and career-high 15 batters. That number represents the second-best mark in NCAA Division III this season and ranks among the top-five single-game performances in Adrian history.

Parsons was going up against Western New England's Paul Wetmore (NCBWA Pitcher of the Week winner) and Christopher Arcos of La Verne--both tossing no-hitters.
