WORCESTER, Mass. - Former Holy Cross baseball standout Tucker Frawley (New Haven, Conn.) was named to the American Baseball Coaches Association All-Northeast Region Second Team, as announced by committee officials this afternoon. This is the first ABCA regional award of Frawley's career. The recent Crusader graduate was one of 26 players throughout the region to be selected. Fellow Patriot League players Mitch Harris (First Team) of Navy and Milan Dinga (Second Team) of Army were also honored.
Frawley, a five-foot-seven, 170-pound second baseman, recently signed with the Worcester Tornadoes of the Can-Am Independent League. In eight games with the Tornadoes thus far, Frawley is hitting .281, with nine hits, four runs scored and two RBI.
This past season, Frawley was a New England Intercollegiate Baseball Association (NEIBA) Division I Second Team selection, as well as a Second Team All-Patriot League pick, after leading the team in batting average, at-bats, hits, RBI, doubles, triples, walks, total bases, and plate appearances.
Frawley finished his career as Holy Cross' all-time hits leader (190 career hits), all-time at-bats leader (540 career at-bats), and leader for at-bats in a single season (171 at-bats in 2006). He ranks second in program history for career games played (147 games played), hits (65 hits in 2006) in single season and assists (121 assists in 2006) in a single season, third all-time for both RBI (37 RBI in 2006) in a single season and total bases (79 total bases in 2006) in a single season, and fourth all-time for doubles (10 doubles in 2006) in a single season. In addition, he ranks seventh all-time for highest batting average in a single season (.409 ba in 2005), and is one of only six players in program history tied for most games played in a single season (43 games played in 2006).
A three-time All-Patriot League and two-time NEIBA selection, Frawley was honored with the Holy Cross baseball Hop Riopel Award in 2006, given to the team's Most Valuable Player. Frawley is only the second player (Ronnie Perry, Jr. '80) in program history to earn the award three times.
