KINGS POINT, N.Y. (Jan. 10, 2019) – On Thursday, D3baseball.com released its Preseason All-America Team selections ahead of the upcoming 2019 season and USMMA senior Andrew Spinnenweber (Pasadena, Md.) was selected to the Second Team as a starting pitcher. The high praise comes after the right-hander enjoyed a well-decorated 2018 campaign for the Mariners last spring.
After the 2018 season, Spinnenweber was named a D3baseball.com Third Team All-American, to the D3baseball.com and American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA) First Team All-New York Region Teams, the Skyline Conference Pitcher of the Year and to the All-Skyline First Team.
Spinnenweber set numerous career-highs in 2018 with a 1.73 ERA, 99 strikeouts, a .166 opponent batting average, 67.2 innings pitched, six complete games and tying for the team-high with seven victories, as he ended the season with a 7-3 record.
He finished the year ranked in the Top-35 among all DIII pitchers in six different categories. He was sixth with 13.17 strikeouts per nine innings, seventh with six complete games, eighth with 5.32 hits allowed per nine innings, ninth with 0.90 walks and hits per innings pitched (WHIP), 13th with 99 total strikeouts and 34th with a 1.73 earned run average.
