Three Yellow Jackets Elected to 2009 All-OAC Baseball Team

Yellow Jackets seniors Cody Kidd, Riley Kreisher and Brandon Fredericks have been elected to the 2009 All–Ohio Athletic Conference baseball team by the league’s head coaches.

The coaches chose Kidd as a first-team outfielder, and Kreisher was chosen as the first-team first baseman. Kidd finished the regular season fourth in the OAC with a .413 batting average and led the conference with six triples and 23 stolen bases. Kreisher topped the league leaders with a school-record 58 runs batted in, was second with 10 home runs and committed just one error in 324 fielding chances.

Kidd and Kreisher were second-team picks in 2007 and 2008.

Fredericks’ 5–2 conference record, which included a win over OAC champion Heidelberg University, earned him an honorable mention from the coaches. He was one of only three pitchers on the conference leaders board who didn’t surrender a home run this season. His teammate, junior pitcher Justin Novak, was one of the other two.
