ORANGE, Calif. – With the release of the American Baseball Coaches Association's All-Region teams, the Chapman University baseball team doubled down on its trio of selections. Senior Tyler Peck was named the West Region Pitcher of the year, sophomore Nick Garcia landed First Team honors and senior Jonathan Hernandez took Second Team honors.
The Panthers received the same recognition last week from D3baseball.com with Peck and Garcia also earning All-America First Team honors from the website on Monday.
The 2019 pitching staff has been dominant for the Panthers – leading the nation in strikeouts and ranking among the best in ERA. Peck and Garcia both sport sub-2.00 ERAs and over 12 strikeouts per nine innings to lead that charge. Hernandez has thrown three complete games with 86 strikeouts in 100-plus innings and a 2.68 ERA.
Peck and Garcia are now up for ABCA All-American honors to be announced at the Opening Ceremonies of the Division III World Series on Thursday.
