NORFOLK, Va. – Norfolk State left handed pitcher Matt Outman was named Wednesday to the American Baseball Coaches Association/Rawlings Division I All-East Region second team, the ABCA announced.
Outman, the 2015 MEAC Pitcher of the Year, logged an 8-2 record and a 3.12 earned-run average for the Spartans during his junior campaign. He led the MEAC in wins and strikeouts (85 in 75 innings pitched) while helping the Spartans finish 27-16 and win the MEAC Northern Division regular-season title. Outman was named the MEAC Pitcher of the Week on three different occasions. He owns a 16-4 record through his two years as a Spartan.
The ABCA East Region consists of an area which includes schools from the CAA, Atlantic 10, Patriot League, Big East and America East conferences. Outman is NSU’s first ABCA All-Region honoree since right hander Luke Foss in 2007.
