For the third time in a span of a week, senior captain Cam DiSarcina (Shirley, Mass.) of the Merrimack College baseball team earned All-East Region honors on Monday, this time from the American Baseball Coaches’ Association who voted DiSarcina onto the second team at first base.
Last week, DiSarcina earned status on all-region teams coordinated by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA) and the Division II Conference Commissioners Association (D2CCA). It’s the second time in as many seasons that a Warrior has earned all-region honors from all three outlets, joining Bobby Losanno ’16.
A NE10 All-Conference First Team selection, DiSarcina enjoyed a career season playing at first base for the Warriors. The team captain notched career highs in doubles (21), runs scored (33), home runs (3), RBI (37), slugging percentage (.539) and OPS (.941), hitting in the No. 3 spot in all but one of Merrimack’s games this season. He led the NE10 in doubles, tying Merrimack’s single-season record in the process, while also pacing the conference in the regular season with a career-best 26 extra-base hits.
DiSarcina etched his name in the Warriors’ record book in multiple other areas throughout the season. He finished his four-year career with 60 doubles, breaking the program record and totaling 15 more doubles than the next closest Warrior. He totaled 655 at-bats, the most ever in Warriors history, while ranking in the top-three of a few categories including total bases (300), hits (212) and RBI (130).--
