Published

on

West Virginia right-handed pitcher Trey Braithwaite was named to the All-America Third Team, voted on by the National College Baseball Writers Association. Braithwaite is the 24th All-American in program history.

Braithwaite had himself a record-setting season while at West Virginia. The fifth-year senior posted a 1.70 ERA in 22 appearances. Braithwaite finished with a 3-0 record and eight saves. The right-handed pitcher allowed seven earned runs in 37.0 innings. Braithwaite was named to the All-Big 12 First Team in May.

Current Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Alek Manoah is the last Mountaineer to be named an All-American, doing so in 2019.

Braithwaite just completed his first season at WVU, fifth year in college. The Winchester, Va., native spent his first four years at Navy, where he recorded 86 strikeouts in 67.1 innings.
