MARSHALL, Minn. – Sophomore Jeffrey Praml (Bridgewater, N.J.) of the Southern New Hampshire University baseball team was chosen as a Division II Conference Commissioners Association (D2CCA) All-America Honorable Mention on Friday.
Praml, who became the 10th All-American in the history of the program Wednesday and the first since Zach Goldstein was a D2CCA All-America Honorable Mention in 2017, has already received National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA) All-America Third Team, NCBWA All-East First Team, American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA) East All-Region First Team, D2CCA All-East First Team and Northeast-10 All-Conference First Team honors this year. Praml went 5-1 with 10 saves and a 0.98 ERA, while punching out 44, walking only seven and giving up just 17 hits, in 36-and-two-third innings. Praml, who had a 22-and-a-third-inning scoreless streak across 17 appearances from March 3-May 16, led the conference in appearances (25), while ranking second in saves and fourth in batting average against (.140). In SNHU's single-season record book, Praml tied for first in appearances, placed third in saves and ranked fourth in ERA.
The 40-15 Penmen, ranked as high as fourth in the NCBWA Division II Poll, captured their third straight Northeast Division title, but lost in the first round of the NE10 Championship, before winning the NCAA East II Regional, as the region's No. 2 seed. They were one of the final two teams standing in the East Region for the fourth consecutive year, but did not prevail in the NCAA East Super-Regional against the New York Institute of Technology.
