Slippery Rock University redshirt sophomore Gage Gillott has been named to the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association All-Atlantic Region Team as a first team starting pitcher, marking the first all-region honor of his career. Gillott's impressive season includes previous accolades such as the PSAC Western Division Pitcher of the Year and first team All-PSAC West recognition. The USC Upstate transfer finished the season with a 7-3 record, a 2.44 ERA, and 70 strikeouts over 73.2 innings. Additionally, his batting skills were notable, with a .341 average and 19 RBI. Gillott now advances to the national ballot for All-America consideration.

Yes, But

While Gillott's pitching stats are outstanding, he has yet to secure recognition from other organizations like the ABCA and the D2CCA, which could solidify his status as an elite player. Additionally, his eligibility for the All-America team remains contingent on further evaluations.

State of Play
  • Slippery Rock University finished its season with a 28-18 record
  • Qualified for the PSAC Tournament for the second time in three seasons
What's Next

Gillott awaits possible selections for the ABCA and D2CCA All-Region teams. He is also a candidate for the NCBWA All-American Team, with the announcement slated for early June. Success in these areas could further boost his profile and career opportunities.

Bottom Line

Gage Gillott's remarkable achievements on both the mound and at the plate highlight his dual-threat capabilities and make him a standout player to watch as postseason honors continue to roll in.
