Baseball Picked Second in AMCC Preseason Coaches Poll
03/05/2003

PITTSBURGH — The Frostburg State baseball team has been picked to finish second in the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference according to a preseason vote by the league's head coaches.

Pitt-Bradford is predicted to repeat as conference champions for the third consecutive year, receiving six of the seven first-place votes.

Frostburg State, which finished 20-14 overall and 8-4 in the AMCC last year, edged Penn State Behrend for second place.

Only the top three teams were listed.

Frostburg State senior catcher Jake Mannon (Southampton, N.J./Lenape) was voted the AMCC Preseason Player of the Year.

A 2002 first-team all-conference selection, Mannon hit .343 with nine doubles, 26 RBI and a .505 slugging percentage last season.

Pitt-Bradford senior Eric Haynoski was voted the Preseason Pitcher of the Year. He posted a 10-2 record with a 1.91 ERA and 72 strikeouts in 77 innings, and he was also a force at the plate with a .370 batting average.

Bobcat senior outfielder Tim Wilkins (Baltimore, Md./Mervo) was listed among the players to watch in the AMCC this season.

Last year, Wilkins earned second-team all-conference honors after hitting .398 with six home runs, 36 RBI and an impressive .704 slugging percentage.
