MT. PLEASANT, Mich. (GC ATHLETICS RELEASE) – The American Association of Baseball Coaches (ABCA) recently released the Rawlings Division II All-America teams, with Georgia College catcher Steve Hazel (Kentwood, Mich.) owning a spot on the second team.

Hazel hit .381 this season, adding 13 home runs and 53 RBI. The catcher had a .710 slugging percentage, and scored 45 runs as well. His slugging ranks just outside the school’s top-10, and seventh in the country this season. His 13 home runs finished 10th in all of Division II. He had the Bobcats’ longest hitting streak of the season at 17 ballgames, coming to an end when he left a game after one at-bat due to injury.

The junior is the first Rawlings All-American for GC Baseball since Tanner Funk and Shawn Ward in 2011. Hazel is the first catcher to earn the honor in Georgia College history, and the 16th player overall in school history.

The Bobcats wrapped up another monster season in 2013, going 35-17 and earning a spot in the NCAA Southeast Regionals for the second-straight season. Georgia College led the country in runs per game at 9.4, finished second in on-base percentage (.440) and were third in both home runs (58) and slugging (.513).
