Lions score postseason baseball awards from Ivy League
A vote from the Ivy League coaches resulted in several postseason awards for Columbia baseball, most notably, Columbia junior outfielder Dario Pizzano receiving Player of the Year.
According to a statement from the Ivy League:
Pizzano was also a unanimous first-team All-Ivy selection at first base. He capped off an impressive season that saw the junior bat .360 (54-of-150) with 37 runs, 16 doubles, four home runs and 36 RBI. He slugged .547, walked 31 times and recorded an on-base percentage of .471. Pizzano tied for the team lead in batting average, hits, at bats, runs and home runs and led Columbia in doubles and RBI. Pizzano leads the League in on-base percentage and ranks tied for first in runs, second in walks, tied for second in hits, third in RBI and doubles, tied for third in batting average and fifth in slugging percentage.
Seniors Pat Lowery, Jon Eisen, and Dario Pizzano received first-team All-Ivy honors, junior Alex Black received second-team All-Ivy honors, and juniors Stefan Olson and Nick Ferraresi received honorable mention All-Ivy honors.
Unfortunately Columbia did not win the award for best YouTube video of the year, with that special honor going to Harvard for their rendition of “Call Me Maybe” (Just kidding: I made that award up. But, still they deserved it.).
