PEMBROKE, N.C. - Newberry College's Jonathan Rosenberger, Ryan Cranmer and Albert Baur have been named to the all-Southeast region teams announced by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers' Association on Sunday.

Rosenberger and Cranmer were second team honorees, while Baur was named to the third team. The trio are the first all-region honorees from Newberry since 2009, when Thomas Berryhill earned NCBWA second team honors.

Rosenberger (Anderson, S.C.) earned second team honors at starting pitcher after earning first team all-SAC honors in his sophomore season. He led the Wolves to success in the league with an 8-2 record and 2.51 earned run average. His eight wins ranked third in the conference, and his ERA was fifth in the league. He allowed 23 runs in 75.1 innings pitched, striking out 54 and walking only 22, with opponents hitting .228 against him. He won his first six conference starts in order and allowed no more than four earned runs in any start. He was named to the Tino Martinez Award watch list in just his second season.

Cranmer (Newport, N.C.) earned second team honors at third base after becoming Newberry's first-ever first team all-South Atlantic Conference infielder in his junior season. He was fourth in the league with a .368 batting average and tied for fourth in the league with 50 RBIs. His 50 runs scored were third in the conference and he was second in the conference with a .466 on-base percentage, a .632 slugging percentage and 30 walks. He had 10 homeruns to rank fourth in the league and was 21-for-21 on stolen base attempts to rank second in the league in steals and notch the most steals in the league without being caught. He was one of only two Wolves to play in every game this season.

Baur (Philadelphia, Pa.) earned third team honors at first base after earning second team all-SAC honors in his sophomore season. He was the only Newberry player to start in all 51 games, led the team and finished third in the conference with a .371 batting average. His 54 RBIs tied for the conference lead. He led the league with 78 hits and was third with 19 doubles. He had eight homeruns to finish fifth in the conference and his 47 runs scored finished fourth in the league. He was the SAC's Gold Glove winner at first base with only five errors on the season and a .987 fielding average. He was also named to the Tino Martinez Award watch list as just a sophomore. He was twice named SAC Player of the Week.
