MONTEVALLO, Ala. – Newberry baseball’s dynamic duo of Albert Baur and Wesley Camp continue to add accolades to their resumes as they have been dubbed first team All-Southeast Region honorees by DAKTRONICS, as announced Thursday afternoon. This is the second time this week the pair have slated all-region laurels, as they found themselves on the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association list on Tuesday.

Baur and Camp pick up their first all-region honors from DAKTRONICS, joining Ryan Cranmer (Newport, N.C.) as the only three Newberry players to ever earn the distinction.

Baur, a senior from Philadelphia, Pa., notches the third all-region decoration in his career after being named a first team All-SAC and NCBWA All-Southeast Region selection at first base this season. He posted a .427 batting average (88-for-206) with 24 doubles, 16 home runs, 59 RBIs and scored 54 times. The left-handed hitter slugged .796 and reached base at a .510 clip in 2015, en route to setting the single marks in the Newberry record books in hits, doubles, and slugging percentage. He ranked in the top five in the SAC in hits, doubles, home runs, RBIs, total bases, batting average, on-base percentage and slugging percentage.

Camp, a senior from Pelion, S.C., tallied his third career all-region plaudit after receiving first team All-SAC and second team NCBWA All-Southeast Region nods as a starting pitcher in 2015. The southpaw amassed a 9-2 overall record which tied the Newberry all-time mark for wins in a season, while tallying 77 strikeouts and a 2.82 ERA in 83.0 innings pitched. He boasted a 6.42:1 strikeout to walk ratio while the opposition hit a mere .272 off him for the year. In the league rankings, Camp’s name finished in the top 10 in innings pitched, strikeouts, strikeouts per game and ERA.

The twosome now advance to the DAKTRONICS All-American ballot, which will be voted on by Division II sports information professionals from across the nation.
