Somers named D1Baseball Preseason All-America
EUGENE – D1Baseball named Oregon relief pitcher Kolby Somers to its preseason All-America Third Team on Monday. The honor is the second for Somers, who was named to Collegiate Baseball's preseason All-America team in December.
Somers, a senior from Hillsboro, Ore. who claimed first-team All-Pac-12 Conference honors and NCBWA All-America honors last season, was dominant closing out games for the Ducks in 2021. The lefty finished the season with a 2-2 record and a 3.08 ERA with 11 saves. He fanned 37 in 26.1 innings pitched while holding opposing hitters to a .149 batting average.
He ranked third in the Pac-12 in saves, as well as ranking sixth all-time in single-season saves at Oregon. His seven saves in conference games were the second most in the league, one behind the leader.
