CU's Gomez is a pre-season All-American
Post staff reports
Cumberland University pitcher Anthony Gomez has been named a 2014 NAIA Baseball Preseason All-American, as selected by the NAIA-Baseball Coaches Association All-America Committee.
Gomez allowed one earned run in eight innings at Tennessee Wesleyan and one run in nine innings at Campbellsville University during the regular season. He tossed 10 shutout frames versus Campbellsville in the Mid-South Conference Championships, giving up just five total baserunners in 10 innings in the contest.
Opponents batted just .195 against Gomez last season and he ended the year ranked fifth nationally in ERA and tied for ninth in victories. He was an Honorable Mention All-America selection at the end of last year, becoming the 61st All-American in program history.
The Bulldogs have posted at least one All-American in each of the last four seasons, including Matt Greener, Kris Miller, Troy Frazier, Shawn Schaefer and Aaron Wilkerson in 2010; Wilkerson, Mike Mandarino and Will Locante in 2011; and Mandarino in 2012.
