Monday, December 17, 2007

SHREVEPORT – The inaugural Ping!Baseball All Ping! Freshmen Team was announced and picking up the honor for Centenary was sophomore pitcher Dakota Robinson, who was named to the second team. The rosters were selected by the Ping!Baseball staff.

Robinson appeared in 30 games out of the bullpen during the 2007 season and had a 3.16 ERA with a 2-4 record. He was second on the team with four saves, worked 57 innings, struck out 37, while walking just seven.

The Shreveport, La., natives longest outing was against Oral Roberts on May 13, pitching 4.1 innings of relief. Robinson also went six games without giving up an earned run and also struck out a career-high four batter three times.

At one point during the 2007 season, Robinson pitched 24.1 innings without giving up a walk. During that same time, he allowed just 17 hits, five runs, two earned, struck out 16, and had a minimal 0.74 ERA.

“This is unbelievable honor for Dakota,” said head coach Ed McCann. “He is going to be such an outstanding pitcher for us during the next three years. I won’t be surprised if he receives more honors like this.”

Joining Robinson on the All-Freshmen Team from The Summit League was Oral Roberts pitcher Jerry Sullivan, who garnered first team honors.
