Braithwaite placed on NCBWA All-America team

MORGANTOWN, WV — Fifth-year senior right-handed pitcher Trey Braithwaite of the West Virginia University baseball team has been named a third-team All-America by the National College Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA), the organization announced Wednesday.

Braithwaite was 3-0 with a 1.70 ERA in 22 appearances for the Mountaineers in 2022. The Winchester, Va. native allowed just seven earned runs in 37.0 innings of work, recording eight saves – tied for second in WVU’s single-season record pound — with 36 strikeouts and 20 walks. Also, the opponents only hit .151 against the right-hander.

With the honor, Braithwaite becomes the 24th West Virginia All-American in program history. He is also the first mountaineer to be selected to an All-America team by the NCBWA since Alek Manoah in 2019.

In addition to the All-America honor, Braithwaite was also named to the ABCA/Rawlings East All-Region team Wednesday by the American Baseball Coaches Association.

Braithwaite was named to the All-Big 12 first team last month, joining the senior outfielder austin davis on the squad. He was also placed on the NCBWA Midseason Watch List of the Year on April 27.

WVU finished 33-22 this season, including 14-10 in Big 12 play – the most conference wins since joining the league in 2013.
