Hamilton College pitcher Ian Nish '19 (Cutchogue, N.Y./Mattituck-Cutchogue HS) was selected for the 2018 American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA)/Rawlings Division III All-Region Team on Tuesday, May 22.

2018 ABCA D3 All-Region Team

Nish was voted to the second team in the New York Region by members of the ABCA. He is one of just two relief pitchers on the New York all-region team. The right-hander made the all-NESCAC second team earlier this month.

Nish, who pitched for the first time in his Hamilton career this spring, matched the program record with six saves as the Continentals won a team-record 17 games. He posted a 1-0 record with a 0.45 earned run average and 20 strikeouts in 17 appearances out of the bullpen. Nish owned a .176 batting average against and allowed 12 hits and five walks in 20 innings. He gave up two unearned runs in his last 14 relief appearances this season.
