Doane Named Second Team All-American by NCBWA

Wednesday, June 12, 2013

MORGANTOWN, W. Va. (June 12, 2013) – After two rounds of voting by the organization, ETSU right-handed pitcher Kerry Doane (Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.) was one of 58 baseball student-athletes to be placed on the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association's (NCBWA) 18th Annual All-America first, second and third teams, which was released on Wednesday. Doane was named Second Team All-American by the NCBWA.

Last month, Doane became just the third Buccaneer player to receive Louisville Slugger First Team All-American honors, while the Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. native was most recently selected in the 24th round by the Cleveland Indians in the 2013 MLB Draft last Saturday.  

Along with the All-American honors, Doane was named Atlantic Sun Pitcher of the Year and A-Sun Tournament MVP. In addition, the Buccaneer standout was also one of 30 semifinalists for the Golden Spikes award and one of 22 players to be placed on the National Pitcher of the Year Watch List. Doane is still in the running for the inaugural Gregg Olson Breakout Player of the Year award, which will be announced later this month at the College World Series in Omaha, Neb. 

The Buccaneer senior hurler led the Blue and Gold to their first-ever A-Sun Championship and first NCAA Regional appearance since 1981 after going 13-2 with a 2.14 ERA in 17 starts. The 13 victories tied an ETSU single-season record, while his 12 complete games and 147 innings led all NCAA pitchers as well as setting new Buccaneer program marks. In addition, Doane tossed four shutouts in 2013, which is tied for the NCAA lead, and his 13 wins are tied for second in the country. 

Doane’s 2.14 ERA is the second-lowest figure in program history and the lowest since Dallas Rinehart registered a 2.81 mark in 1992. Meanwhile, Doane generated a .867 winning percentage in 2013, which also ranked second in the ETSU history books.
