Buena Vista senior relief pitcher, Dalton Mason, has landed a spot on this year's All-Central Region Third Team as announced by D3baseball.com on Tuesday.
Mason led the region in saves this season with eight. The total is the second-highest single-season output in BVU history. He made 15 appearances overall on the year and pitched 22.0 innings. He was one of the most efficient hurlers, striking out 22 during that span compared to only seven walks (9.0 K/9IP).
The Altoona, Iowa, native was one of four Iowa Conference selections on the Third Team and one of nine overall from the IIAC. Mason is the program's fifth selection by a relief pitcher since D3baseball.com began awarding an all-region team in 2012. BVU has landed at least one All-Region honoree every it has been awarded.
Nearly 800 players were nominated over eight regions throughout the country. Ballots were then made available to Sports Information Directors, who voted for a select number of players in their respective regions. D3baseball staff and contributors also were involved in the voting process.
