Rearick Named Rawlings/ABCA All-American

DAHLONEGA, GA – North Georgia left-handed pitcher Chris Rearick has received another award as the senior has been named a Rawlings/ABCA Third-Team All-American announced last week in conjunction with the Division II World Series.

Rearick is now the third baseball player in North Georgia history to be named an NCAA All-American, following Brian Lauderdale’s Third-Team selection in 2006, and Rob Flanigan’s First-Team pick in 2008.

After being named the PBC Pitcher of the Year and the Rawlings/ABCA Southeast Region Pitcher of the Year, the senior from Pooler, Ga., garners All-American honors as a pitcher on the Third-Team.

He finished the 2010 campaign with a 9-2 record, notching 99 strikeouts in 98.1 innings of work. Rearick had a 3.20 earned run average in 14 starts, while opponents hit .237 against him. He allowed just 25 extra base hits and tossed one complete game.

The Rawlings/ABCA All-America team is voted on and administered by the American Baseball Coaches Association of America.
