Monroe, Loiseau, Baseball Team Honored at NEIBA All-Star Game Monday Night
BROCKTON, Mass. – Brad Monroe (Hampton, N.H.), who recently wrapped up a standout four-year career with the Southern New Hampshire University baseball program, was named the Pitcher of the Game of the 38th annual New England Intercollegiate Baseball Association (NEIBA) All-Star Game held Monday night at Campanelli Stadium. In addition, before the game, the Penmen were recognized as the Division II Team of the Year, while SNHU head coach Scott Loiseau was named the association's DII Coach of the Year.
Monroe started the game for the College Division All-Star team and worked the first two innings, striking out four batters, walking none and allowing just one hit and no runs. The College Division All-Stars, comprised of players from Division II and III institutions, fell to the University Division (Division I) squad by a 5-3 score.
Loiseau and the SNHU baseball team were honored after enjoying the program's best-ever season in 2012, posting a school record for wins with a 43-15 record. The Penmen qualified for the NCAA Tournament for the first time, capturing the East Region title and advancing to the Division II College World Series, where they won their first game 3-2 over Minnesota State.
