- The Frostburg State baseball team, who recently swept the opening doubleheader from the defending Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference champion Penn State Behrend Lions, were recently ranked regionally by the American Baseball Coaches Association.
The Bobcats (14-9, 2-0) are ranked tied for eighth in the Mid-Atlantic region based primarily on an impressive opening conference doubleheader sweep of Behrend and their performance against a very difficult non-conference schedule.
Frostburg State racked up impressive wins over perennial national powers Southern Maine and Millikin University on its spring break trip to Tampa, FL.
FSU leads the AMCC with 144 runs scored, 203 hits, 45 doubles, 11 homeruns, 125 RBI, 43 stolen bases, 152 strikeouts, three complete game shutouts and two combined shutouts.
The Bobcats not only are racking up the wins and dominating the AMCC statistically as a team, but also individually. Recently senior Brent Lutz (Central/Toms Brook, Va.) and junior Scott Feller (American Heritage/Boca Raton, Fla.) were named AMCC pitcher of the week and player of the week respectively.
Frostburg State returns to action as it continues to battle through their difficult schedule, as they will host Juniata, who is regionally ranked sixth in the Mid-Atlantic region, on Wednesday, March 31st at 3:00 p.m. in a nine-inning contest.
