DANBURY, Conn. – Saint Joseph’s righthander Tim Brennan was named to the All-ECAC Baseball First Team, the organization announced on Thursday.
Brennan turned in an outstanding season for the Hawks, posting a 9-3 record with a 2.94 earned run average in 88.2 innings. The junior anchored the SJU rotation all season long, tying for the league lead in victories during the regular season while moving into second place on the program’s all-time list for both wins (20) and strikeouts (216). He fanned 84 batters on the season while walking just five.
A native of Philadelphia, Brennan currently leads all of Division I in strikeout-to-walk ratio and fewest walks per nine innings; he could become the first Hawk to lead the nation in a statistical category since Dave Owsik led the country in stolen bases per game in 1970.
Isaiah Pasteur of George Washington was named the ECAC Player of the Year, while Hofstra’s John Rooney was tabbed as the Pitcher of the Year. Ryan Ward of Bryant earned Rookie of the Year honors, while Coach of the Year accolades went to Mike Glavine of Northeastern.
