EWING, N.J. - Frostburg State senior Billye Hollister (Waldorf, Md./Thomas Stone) was named the 2006 American Baseball Coaches Association Mid-Atlantic Region Pitcher of the Year, Monday afternoon. He was also one of four pitchers selected to the ABCA all-region first team.

Hollister capped a stellar career for FSU posting a 10-1 record and one save in 15 appearances this spring. In 86.2 innings of work, he struckout 80 batters, had a 2.18 earned run average and threw two shutouts. He also limited opponents to a .198 batting average.
