NASHVILLE, Tenn – Belmont senior outfielder Zac Mitchell (Memphis, Tenn.) has been named to the 2012 ABCA/Rawlings All-South Region Second Team which was announced on Monday. 

 

Mitchell was the offensive catalyst for the Bruins this season.  A first team-All-Atlantic Sun selection, he batted .350 with 37 RBIs, and 65 runs scored.  Zac led the team in seven offensive categories and led the Atlantic Sun Conference in three categories (on-base percentage, runs scored, and hit by pitches).

 

"This is a tremendous honor for Zac," said Dave Jarvis, Belmont head coach.  "It is so well deserved.  His play on the field was a huge reason why we have made two consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances. "

 

Mitchell becomes the second Belmont baseball player in three seasons to earn All-Region honors.  Nate Woods was chosen for the team in 2010.
