Brabrand Named to PG and NCBWA All-America Teams

NCBWA All-America Teams

PG All-America Teams

Liberty pitcher Evan Brabrand was selected to the 2019 PerfectGame (PG) and the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA) All-America teams.

Brabrand garnered second team honors from PerfectGame, while the members of the NCBWA voted the right-hander to their third team. He also was named to the 2019 Collegiate Baseball All-America team, two weeks ago.

Brabrand, a redshirt senior, posted a 4-3 record with 13 saves and a 1.56 ERA over 63 1/3 innings for 43-21 ASUN Champion Liberty, this season. In 25 appearances, all in relief, the Raleigh, N.C., native struck out 66 and walked 13.

A first team ASUN All-Conference member, Brabrand finished the season 11th nationally and as the ASUN leader in saves. He etched his name in the program's record books, completing the year second on the Flames' all-time single-season saves list.

During the year, Brabrand was named to the Midseason Update for the 15th NCBWA Stopper of the Year Award and was selected to the PG All-American team. He was one of four relief pitchers selected to the squad.

The right-hander was one of three Flames taken in last week's Major League Baseball Draft. The Miami Marlins chose Brabrand in the ninth round. With his selection, Liberty has had at least one player chosen in each draft since 2000.
