Former Stratford standout outfielder Bobby Ison was named to the All-Big South baseball team for Charleston Southern.
Ison, a junior, finished second in the voting for All-Big South Player of the Year.
In addition to being one of the top centerfielders in college baseball, he set a CSU single-season record for hits – for the second-straight season – with 90. He led the Bucs in the regular season with a .402 average and is in the Top 15 nationally in batting average.
Ison leads the nation as the toughest to strike out, once every 40 at-bats.
Senior third baseman Alex Tomasovich was also named to the first team, batting .359 during the regular season.
He had the nation’s longest hitting streak this season at 25 games, lasting from February until early April. He set the CSU career record for doubles with 52 for his career and needs two more this season to set the single-season doubles record (22). He has 250 career hits and needs five in this week’s Big South Championship to become the Bucs’ all-time career hits leader.
Liberty junior second baseman Ryan Seiz was voted the Big South Player of the Year, while Liberty skipper Jim Toman was tabbed the Coach of the Year by the League’s head coaches. The coaches voted Flames’ hurler Trey Lambert Pitcher of the Year and Liberty pitcher Parker Bean the League’s Freshman of the Year.
