Sophomore closer Chris DeGoti is the only New England player on the D3baseball All-America First Team

MEDFORD -- Sophomore closer Chris DeGoti (Miami, FL) of the Tufts University baseball team, who is tied for the NCAA Division III lead with 12 saves, was announced today as a 2010 All-America First Team selection. DeGoti is the only player from New England among the 16 selections made to D3baseball's All-America First Team.

The New England Intercollegiate Baseball Association's Co-Pitcher of the Year, and a New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) First Team selection, DeGoti broke the Tufts single-season and career saves records this season. In addition to the 12 this year, he has 17 in his two-year career.

Combining a bulldog mentality with great stuff, DeGoti recorded a 1.17 earned run average in 20 appearances for Tufts this season. He surrendered just three earned runs in 23 total innings, and struck out 23 while allowing only nine walks. Five of his saves came in NESCAC East Division play, where Tufts finished 10-2 to win the pennant and earn the right to host the conference championship. He did not allow a run in six NESCAC divisional appearances. The Jumbos went on to win the NESCAC title, with DeGoti saving two out of the three games during the championship weekend.

DeGoti recorded a six-out save against Eastern Connecticut in Game 7 of the NCAA Division III Regional hosted by the Warriors, allowing just one hit to finish off a 3-0 win.

The 2010 Jumbos smashed the previous school record for victories with their 34-7 mark this spring. Coach John Casey's Jumbos finished as the runner-up at the Regional.
