Four Make All-Big East

Despite a disappointing year from a team standpoint, WVU still had some success on the baseball diamond, as evidenced by four selections to the All-Big East team.

Pitcher Zac Cline and outfielder Lee Fritz were named to the all-Big East first team, as chosen by the league's head coaches.

Cline, the ace of the WVU pitching staff, was 8-3 with a nation's best 10 complete games. He recorded an excellent ERA of 2.65, and struck out 44 batters while recording two shutouts.

Fritz led the Mountaineers in hitting with a .364 average, and compiled a .415 on-base percentage to go along with 64 hits, including a team-high 15 doubles. In the field, he was also outstanding, with just two errors in 46 games.

WVU also placed two players on the third team, shortstop Grant Psomas and outfielder Stan Posluszny. Psomas had a team-leading .556 slugging percentage, and topped the Mountaineers with nine home runs while hitting .343 on the strength of a team-best 68 hits. He also drove in 45 runs, tops on the team.

Posluszny batted .322 and recorded a sterling .991 fielding percentage, committing just one error in 50 contests.
