2014 SIAC BASEBALL PRESEASON ALL-CONFERENCE TEAM NAMED

Atlanta – The Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference today announced the 2014 SIAC Preseason Baseball All-Conference team as voted by the SIAC Baseball Coaches Association.

Headlining the list of the Preseason All-Conference Team are a trio of Stillman seniors in pitchers Joey Falletta and Tyler Vails, along with third baseman Kyle Smith.

Falletta, the 2013 SIAC Starting Pitcher of the Year, led the SIAC in earned run average (2.11) and opposing batting average (.212), while Vails, who was named 2013 Relief Pitcher of the Year, returns after tying for third in the conference in wins (5). Smith begins his senior campaign after co-leading the conference in doubles (10), ranking second in RBI’s (38) and fourth in hits (37) last season.

Both Falletta and Smith were also named to the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA) preseason all-region team in January, along with Benedict sophomore pitcher Yaniel Delgado, who was also voted to the SIAC Preseason All-Conference team.

Claflin sophomore outfielder Sixto Guerrero, who earned 2013 SIAC Freshman of the Year honors, returns to build on his 2013 season where he tied for fifth in the SIAC in hits per game (1.33) and ranked 10th in the conference in both batting average (.395) and on base percentage (.495).
