Worcester, Mass. - Junior second baseman Tucker Frawley (New Haven, Conn.) was named to the New England Intercollegiate Baseball Association (NEIBA) Division I First Team, as announced this week by NEIBA officials. Frawley is one of 25 all-stars from New England Division I baseball teams who was selected to play in the 30th annual College Baseball All-Star Game at Fenway Park on Sunday, June 5.

A two-time All-Patriot League selection, Frawley ranked second in the league in batting average, hitting .409 and tied for 28th nationally in the same category. In League games, Frawley hit .434, which was also second best. He finished the year as one of just two players in the conference to bat .400 or better. In addition, he finished second in the league with a .484 on base percentage (all games) and was second with a .516 on base percentage in league games.

Frawley led Holy Cross in hits (45) and drove in 16 runs, while scoring 17 runs. The Connecticut native boasted a .509 slugging percentage and hit three doubles, two home runs and one triple this season. Defensively, he owned a .984 fielding percentage after committing just two errors in the field. He also recorded 68 assists and 56 putouts.

Frawley is also a two-time HC Riopel Award winner, as the team's Most Valuable Player.

The University Division team consisting of the Division I players will face a squad made up of Division II and Division III All-Stars. The University Division has lost the last two meetings and three of the last four NEIBA All-Star games, but leads 19-9-1 overall.

The game will start approximately at 6:30 p.m., following the Red Sox/Los Angeles Angels game.
