Baseball Pitcher Halle Earns National Honor
March 18, 2004
Louisiana College pitcher James Halle parlayed his no-hitter vs. Ozarks last weekend into selection as the NCAA Division III co-National Pitcher of the Week by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association.
Halle, who was earlier named ASC East Pitcher of the Week, shared the award with Adam Huron of Haverford College (Pa.). The NCBWA award covered games for the March 8-14 week.
Halle tossed a seven-inning no-hitter in a 10-0 win against University of the Ozarks on March 12. The sophomore allowed one runner to reach base (a walk) who was subsequently wiped out on a steal attempt. Halle struck out 10 of the 21 batters in the complete-game effort.
The NCBWA reviews candidates from each Division III conference each week and names winners each Tuesday throughout the season. Information on the NCBWA weekly awards is available at www.sportswriters.net/ncbwa.
