Garrett Mack (Avon) has been named to the ABCA/Rawlings NCAA Division III Mideast All-Region Third Team following a electrifying senior season.
Mack finished his career (12-6 record in 33 appearances) with a 5-1 record during the 2019 season. He had a 2.72 ERA in 59.2 innings of work and held opposing hitters to just a .200 batting average. He allowed just 45 hits this season while striking out 53.
In AMCC play he was even more dominant. He finished league play with a 4-0 record and a 1.55 ERA. During a stretch of six appearances this season (37.2 innings of work), he didn't allow an earned run. During that stretch he threw three straight complete game victories for the Pioneers (vs. Pitt Bradford - 9 IP, 3H, 11 K's, vs. Medaille 9 IP, 5 H, 13 K's, and vs. D'Youville 9 IP, 5H, 10 K's).
Earlier this postseason, Mack has been named the AMCC Pitcher of the Year, 1st team All-AMCC, and 2nd team All-ECAC.
Mack is currently playing for the Alpine Cowboys of the Pecos League.
