Baseball Ranks High in National NCAA Statistical Categories
04/29/2003

FROSTBURG, MD - As of April 27, 2003 the Frostburg State University baseball team finds itself in great company as they rank 13th in the nation with a .357 batting average, which has been raised since the 27th up to .358. They also find themselves ranked 21st in winning percentage and 23rd in ERA.

Frostburg State, who had a record of 28-8-1 (.770 winning percentage) as of the 27th of April find themselves in the top 25 nationally and have continued to raise that number adding another victory Monday. Only six teams ahead of the Bobcats have more wins than FSU’s 29.

Even the pitching staff has gotten some recognition as they find themselves ranked 23rd with a 3.37 team ERA, which can been seen as a little deceiving since only seven teams ahead of the Bobcats have similar total number of innings pitched. Many of the teams have over 40 less total innings giving them a huge advantage.

The Bobcats offense has been led by junior Sean Davis’s (Sherwood/Olney, Md.) .435 batting average and 54 hits. Davis’s average is not high enough to find a spot in the top 50, but his 54 hits on the season are more than 34 of the 50 hitters on the national list. Even junior Taylor Dixon (Robinson/Fairfax, Va.), who is second on the team with 47 hits, posses more hits than 24 of the top 50.

Other categories in which Davis could be listed if not for the statistics being divided by games played would be RBI, in which his team high 39 would rank higher than 6 of the top 30. His 12 doubles, as well as sophomore Scott Feller’s (American Heritage/Coral Springs, Fla.) 14 two-baggers would rank them both in the top 25 nationally.

As a team the Bobcats rank high in runs per game. Their 8.4 runs a game is not officially in the top 30, but the teams ranking 28th-30th all have an average of 8.4 runs a game and at the same time have not scored as many runs total as the Bobcats 320 total runs.

In fact the 320 runs that the Bobcats have scored this season is more than 19 of the 30 teams.

Even though the numbers are not quite high enough to make a huge impact nationally, they have made an impact in the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference as the Bobcats lead the conference in batting average, runs scored, defense, and pitching ERA.
