Lee's Pimentel Named Top 3rd Baseman In South Region

Thursday, May 16, 2019
CLEVELAND, Ohio - Lee University's power-hitting third baseman, Miguel Pimentel was named to the Division II Conference Commissioner's Association (D2CCA) All-South Region First Team the organization announced this week.

Pimentel, a native of Santo Domingo, Puerto Rico, saved his best play for his senior season as he was among the Gulf South Conference leaders in several offensive categories. The powerful righty was second in home runs (13), third in slugging percentage (.704) and triples (4), fourth in walks (36), seventh in RBI (41) and tied for ninth in hits (56).

"What a tremendous honor for Miguel.
To be honored as the top third baseman, in arguably the toughest region in the country, is a major accomplishment.  It's more validation of the type of season he put together," said Lee head coach Mark Brew.

Pimentel will now be nominated for D2CCA All-American consideration. The Lee baseball team has had one All-American since joining the NCAA D2, Ben Holland in 2016.
