LYNCHBURG, Va. – Eastern Kentucky University’s Ben Fisher was chosen as a first team Freshman All-American by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA), the organization announced on Monday.
The NCBWA selected a first and second team, honoring a total of 32 freshmen NCAA Division I players from across the country.
Fisher, a first baseman from Richmond, started all of the team’s 55 games. He made only eight errors in his first season of college baseball and posted a 98.5 fielding percentage. Offensively he hit .286 with three home runs, 36 RBIs and 26 runs scored. As a freshman he was second on the team with 30 walks.
The Madison Central High School graduate had a 16-game hitting streak from Feb. 28 to March 22. He was selected to the 2014 Ohio Valley Conference All-Freshman team at the end of the season.
Eastern Kentucky has now had at least one All-American selection each of the last four years. During that span, five Colonels have earned Freshman All-America honors.
