OCCAC Awards Announced

The Sinclair Pride has again received the most All-Conference selections after winning their fourth straight OCCAC Title. The following players were named to the OCCAC All-Conference Team:

Austin Downing, 2B, Middletown, Ohio: .360BA 27H 16RBIs

Joe Ford, SS, Grove City, Ohio: .333BA .427OB% 1.000FLD%

Corey Johnson, RHP Tipp City, Ohio: 5-0 1.25 ERA

Jon Thacker, RHP, Bellbrook, Ohio: 5-0 1.86 ERA

Drew Williams, OF, Pickerington, Ohio: .440BA .660SLG% 15RBIs

"All five of these players are very deserving of being on the All-Conference team," said Dintaman. "The entire team put together one of the most impressive runs ever in the conference, winning twenty-one games."

Corey Johnson also picked up the Pitcher of the Year Award and Coach Steve Dintaman picked up his fifth straight Coach of the Year Award.

"Our conference ERA for the year was in the low 2’s and Corey was a big part of that. In the six starts that he made, every one of them was a quality performance. His season was highlighted when he threw a no-hitter at Lakeland in early April."

"Coaches never win awards by themselves, and there is no way that this program can run without the help of our assistants. I feel very blessed to be able to coach with such a great group of coaches that I consider personal friends. From our top assistant to the manager, they make this program work. Special thanks to Tom Bell, Rick Castle, Dylin Fowler, Trace Fowler, Mike Parr, Brendan Loiacono, Jamey MeWhinney, Joel Eilerman and Taylor Hargrove."
