Carthage 1st Baseman Jason Acevado might be the hottest hitter in all of D-3. He will certainly deserve some All American mention come seasons end.
 

Player                        AVG  GP-GS    AB   R   H  2B  3B  HR RBI   TB  SLG%  BB HBP  SO GDP   OB%

28 Acevado, Jason...  .500  24-24    98  35  49  12   5  10  45  101 1.031  10   2   8   0  .545


Those actually look closer to National Player of the Year numbers.

I am thinking it is very difficult to be player of the year and not be an all-american.

GREAT numbers!!  being a Marietta guy, I'll say those numbers look pretty close to Jay Coakley's from his 2000 and 2001 seasons.

Acevado is having a career year that he (and his team and school) should be very very proud of.

Just to keep another name out here (though I doubt you'd totally forget a 1st team AA!): Ricky Angel has had a good year (though quite modest by AA standards).  He seems to be making a late-season rush to maintain his status.  Against Wheaton (IL) he had a (3 game) cumulative line of 10 4 7 13.  If 10 seems low for ABs in 3 games, bear in mind that he had 3 BBs and 2 HBPs.  I hope that voters keep in mind that returning AAs don't see many decent pitches! :D

He seems to be definitely a clutch hitter: with bases empty (rare for the Titans! ;D) he is hitting .286.  With runners on, he is hitting .417; if in scoring position, it is .440.

I think that at this level, the quality of pitching predicts the batting average versus a "clutch" reputation that we might expect in considering major league players and their situational batting averages.

Great pitchers in D-III have very low batting averages against.  Mediocre pitchers may actually have batting averages against at roughly .400 across the division.  :)

Joe Devlin of Lynchburg just continues to get it done on the mound.  Since being moved from closer (with 3 saves), Devlin has accumulated a 7-0 record with a 0.74 ERA, including a one ER outing vs VWC in a 9 inning ND last week, and a 3-0 3-hitter in a 7 inning shutout vs Bridgewater yesterday.

I am not sure how to format the stats...so here are the main numbers:
7-0 record; 0.74 ERA; 48.33 IP;  30 K; 11 BB; .190 BA%; 33 H; 0.95 ratio.

Hopkins has some good looking candidates for All-American.  While Pietroforte was included, and Fester is out for the season dispite having All-American numbers in the games that he did play, Brian Youchak needs to get some recognition.

Player                 AVG  GP-GS    AB   R   H  2B  3B  HR RBI   TB  SLG%  BB HBP  SO

Pre-Season All American 2nd team at 3B. He went 10-13 this weekend to bump his average up to .532, added an HR, and a few more RBI's.

It's a shame the team he plays on is so poorly coached and is one of the worst teams in the country this year (CCNY, Cunyan conference, probabyl teh worst conference as well). 16-11 last year, they are now 3-22, led the nation in batting average and a coupel of other categorires, they are now in the bottom 50 nationally.

Only now saw your response.  Surely the oba figure of .400 is an exaggeration - IWU has only two pitchers at or above that mark (and they have combined to pitch 3 of the Titan's 228 innings!).  Even after I take a swig of the green kool-aid, I don't think ALL our guys are great! ;D

But I understand your point: Ricky (or anyone) is more likely to face a situation with runners on base against mediocre pitching than against great pitching.  I haven't broken down his season ab by ab and pitcher by pitcher (and have no intention of doing so - there are limits even to my fanaticism! ;)) to see how accurate this logic is, but it makes sense.  (BTW, IWU has now corrected one item on the cumulative box score - Ricky's ba with runners in scoring position is now .440, not .420!)

What are some of the top numbers that Relief Pitchers around the country are putting up?  The only reason I ask is that In the Midwest Region, UW Oshkosh has a guy that is worth mentioning, but I'm not sure his numbers are "All American" type.

Jeremy Rubens is 7-1 with 5 saves and a 2.25 ERA.  He has appeared in 14 of UWO's 25 games (making 2 starts, both of which were CG.)  He has also walked just 7 batters in 48.0 IP. 

Anyone care to throw out some other top reliever's?

Yacko is an excellent relief pitcher, a real closer. Real good fastball and a SICK slider.

Yacko stats are outstanding but his teammate Wayde Kitchens is even better. Wayde missed about 5 starts at the beginning of the season due injuries but since coming back he has done very well himself. Last year Wayde was 12-2

gatekeper, I guess this shows the reason why Chapman is ranked #1. But I think that playing on the road for there last two weekends and having to travel for the regionals will give them the advantage at the regionals. If they had there last two series at home and then had to travel to Abelene I think that they would be at a disadvantage.
      No matter which way you look at it the Panthers are solid up and down there line up and when they need to make subsitutions they really don't lose anything defensively or offensively.
