Six Franklin Pierce baseball players earned end-of-season honors from the Northeast-10 Conference, highlighted by senior left fielder Brad Roberto, who was named to the First Team. Senior catcher Ural Forbes and junior pitcher Derek Duffy made Second Team, senior pitcher Zach Hart was named Third Team, and freshman pitcher Danny Gracia and freshman third baseman Jethro Hurt were chosen All-Rookie.
Roberto is hitting .361/.476/.538, and ranks second in the conference in on-base percentage and third in batting average. Forbes is tied for fifth in doubles (13) and tied for 11th in home runs (5). Duffy, meanwhile, ranks third in strikeouts per nine innings (10.74).
Hart ranks fourth in ERA (1.73) and is second on the Ravens in innings pitched (52), despite missing nearly three weeks at one point due to injury. Gracia tied for the team lead in appearances (17), splitting time between the starting rotation and the bullpen. He is 1-4 with a 4.09 ERA and three saves.
Hurt has settled into a spot as a starting third baseman as a rookie and slashed .243/.388/.408 with three home runs, 11 runs scored and 26 RBI.
The Ravens begin the double-elimination portion of the Northeast-10 Tournament today against Le Moyne.
