Fishman Named D-III All-American
The accolades keep on rolling in for Union College baseball star Jake Fishman, who was named a Division III All-American today.
The lefty was 7-0 this year with a 0.41 ERA in 66 innings pitched. According to Union's website, that was the best ERA in the country, among any division, as of May 25.
In addition to his prowess on the mound, Fishman also hit .361 for the Dutchmen at the plate and helped lead Union to the Liberty League Championship and the second NCAA tournament berth for the program in the last three years.
I spoke with Union head coach Paul Mound yesterday, and he said that 19 Major League teams have called about Fishman. The draft is June 9-11.
Hudson Belinksy of Baseball America told me that Fishman has legitimate late-round interest as well.
Fishman will be playing in the Cape Cod League this summer for Wareham. He's the first Union player to play on the Cape.
