Baldwin Wallace Pitcher Pat Havens Named as an ABCA All-Mideast Region Selection
BEREA, OHIO -- Baldwin Wallace University junior righthanded pitcher Pat Havens (Twinsburg) has been selected as a third-team American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA) All-Mideast Region performer.
Havens is a business administration major and was one of the best pitchers in the Ohio Athletic Conference as he was selected as a first-team All-OAC performer this spring. He helped to lead the Yellow Jackets to a school-record 27 victories and a 27-13 overall record.
This season, Havens was the ace of the staff as he compiled a 7-1 record with a 2.25 earned run average and struck out 63 batters in 52 innings pitched. He started nine games, completed three, had one individual shutout and combined for two others. Opponents batted just .226 against him this season. He also was tabbed as an OAC Pitcher of the Week (The Week of March 13).
For his career, Havens is a two-time recipient of the Yellow Jacket Outstanding Pitcher Award and has posted a 12-6 record. In 27 appearances, including 19 starts, he has five complete games, two individual and five total shutouts and has struck out 102 batters in 117 and two-third innings pitched. He will return next fall as staff ace.
“Pat played a significant role in our success this season,” said second-year head coach Brian Harrison. “Pat was the ace of our pitching staff and always gave us great effort and a chance to win. He has outstanding talent and desire and an unbelievable will to win. We are extremely proud of him and look forward to having them back again as one of our team leaders next season.”
