Washington D.C. - Cal State Fullerton's Wes Roemer was named a First-Team Preseason All-American by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA) Tuesday afternoon, the first such list to be released for the 2007 season.
Roemer headlined a Fullerton pitching rotation that boasted the best ERA in the country (2.73) and the only staff in the country with three 12-game winners. His 13-2 record, 2.38 ERA and impressive 145:7 strikeout-to-walk ratio not only earned him Big West Conference Pitcher of the Year, but NCBWA District IX Player of the Year and Collegiate Baseball's Co-National Player of the Year.
The Glendora-native led the conference in opposing batting average, innings pitched and strikeouts as a sophomore and garnered five First-Team All-American honors from Baseball America, Collegiate Baseball, the NCBWA, the American Baseball Coaches Association and Rivals.com . He was later selected to participate with the US National Team that finished 28-2-1 last summer. The side-armed righty finished 2-0 with a 2.01 ERA in 22.1 innings for Team USA.
The Titan ace joins UC Irvine's closer Blair Erickson as the only two Big West Conference players chosen by the NCBWA on the preseason list.
