Bullpen Duo Leaves Mark on B-W Baseball Record Book

Baldwin-Wallace College bullpen specialists J.D. Fullerton and Bob Storesina finished their careers this spring with a pair of marks in the B-W baseball record book.

Fullerton appeared in 13 games, extending the career record for relief appearances he set last year to 41. The prolific middle reliever and set-up man finished his career with 14 more appearances than any other relief pitcher in school history.

Storesina saved four games this season as the Yellow Jackets’ closer and tied the career record of seven saves set by Andy Robinson from 1991 to 1993. Three of Storesina’s four saves came in one weekend, earning him an Ohio Athletic Conference Pitcher of the Week award. In nine appearances, he allowed just a single earned run.

The All-OAC utility player was also the Jackets’ starting catcher for the past two years, and he was as dominating behind the plate as he was on the mound, throwing out 58% of the base runners who tried to steal a base from him.

All-OAC sophomores Cody Kidd and Riley Kreisher had stellar seasons in the field, leading the Jackets to a .958 fielding average, the second-highest team fielding average in history. Kidd committed only two errors in 113 chances in center field, and Kreisher had just one error at first base. It was the first and only error of his career in over 350 chances. Both players now hold the career fielding average records at their positions.

At the plate, Kidd broke the season record for getting hit by a pitch with a baker’s dozen. In just two seasons, the Jackets’ lead-off hitter is sixth all-time with 19 career HBPs.
