Baseball players earn regional honors
Ryan Kelly ’16 has been named to the 2014 D3baseball.com all-region team (New England), while Vincent Roth has been selected to pitch in the New England Intercollegiate Baseball Association’s all-star game.
Kelly started all 41 games in the outfield for Salve Regina (26-15), collecting 16 extra-base hits (three home runs, five triples and eight doubles). He led the team in home runs (three), runs (44), stolen bases (17) and batting average (.380). Kelly’s hit-by-pitch school record (38) has been achieved in just two seasons, with this year’s mark ranking seventh nationally.
Roth tied for 26th nationally in pitching victories (eight), hurling two complete-game shutouts while maintaining a 1.71 earned run average in 63.1 innings pitched. He earned a postseason victory as the Seahawks defeated Fitchburg State University in first-round action of the Eastern College Athletic Conference New England championships. Roth also etched his name in the Seahawk record book, as he crafted the all-time best earned run average among Salve Regina pitchers with minimum 100 innings pitched.
The all-star game will be played at 7 p.m. Sunday, June 1 at LeLacheur Park in Lowell, Mass. The University Division all-stars, comprised of New England’s top Division I players, will take on the College Division all-stars, which will be represented by the region’s best Division II players and top Division III seniors.
