Henderlite Named D3baseball.com Preseason All-American
LYNCHBURG, VA—Junior Martin Henderlite was named a Preseason Second-Team All-American by d3baseball.com on Wednesday. He was the only Old Dominion Athletic Conference player named to either the first or second team.
Henderlite put together one of the best single-season pitching efforts in recent memory for the baseball team last season. Martin's 1.12 ERA led the ODAC and was less than half of the next lowest (2.27). Henderlite also led the conference with eight wins, two more than the second place finisher, while striking out 55 batters. He was named to the All-Region First Team as well as finishing as an Honorable Mention All-American by d3baseball.com last year.
The 2013 ODAC Pitcher of the Year had a 0.94 ERA in the conference, due in part to a 25 consecutive inning scoreless streak that spanned four starts. On the year, Henderlite allowed a miniscule five earned runs in conference play.
Lynchburg opens the 2014 season at Averett University on February 8. The Hornets return home to play Averett the next day at 1 p.m.
