Brua named All-Mideast Region Gold Glove recipient

Avon graduate and Oberlin College pitcher Phil Brua was named to the American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA) All-Mideast Region Gold Glove Team. With this award, Brua will now be nominated for the national gold glove award at his position.

Brua served as the team’s closer and main reliever this season. He had a team leading 55 innings pitched in 22 total appearances with only two starts on the mound. His 2.78 ERA led the team, as he set school records in total appearances (22) and saves (six). He also tied the school record for single season wins with six.

The sidearm specialist used his athletic ability to be a defensive stalwart on the mound with a .975 fielding percentage on the year; his only two errors on the season coming while he was behind the plate.
