MEDFORD, Mass. – Thursday night at the NCAA Division III Championship banquet in Iowa, the American Baseball Coaches Association / Rawlings announced its 2019 All-America teams. Tufts senior R.J. Hall was named to the Third Team and was one of 50 players to be honored from across the nation.

ABCA/Rawlings Division III All-America Teams

Hall was one of five New England Division III players including just three pitchers in the region who were recognized.

In nine starts this spring, Hall finished 8-0 and is one of just 14 pitchers in the nation to have a perfect winning percentage with eight or more decisions. His 1.45 earned run average is ranked 11th nationally and is fifth-best among pitchers with 60 or more innings. He posted a sub-1.00 walks and hits to innings pitched ratio (0.97).

Hall was the ace of the pitching staff on a Jumbo team that finished 31-11, the fourth-most wins in team history. Head coach John Casey's squad won the NESCAC title and advanced to the NCAA Regional Final.

Among many honors earned this spring, Hall was also a D3baseball.com All-American and the NESCAC Pitcher of the Year.
