Fragale nabs preseason honor


This is the next preseason All-American choice in 2018 for Fragale, who was tabbed a third teamer at dawn by Collegiate Baseball.

Fragale, who was a Second Team All-ACC first baseman last year, will proceed to third base for its 2018 season.
The native of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, finished third on the team this past year at average at .310, but led the Hokies with a .615 slugging percent, 15 home runs, 63 RBI and 12 forfeit flies — which also contributed the NCAA.
One of the country’s leaders, in addition, he finished 17th in RBI per game (1.15), 32nd in complete RBI, 55th in home runs, 58th at HRs per matches (0.27), 65th in slugging percentage and 82nd in total bases (131).

Considering that the group combined the ACC pack in 2005, Fragale’s RBI output signal was that the second-most ever behind Ronnie Shaban’s 67 at 2010, his home runs were tied for second behind Andrew Rash’s 18 at 2011 and his slugging percentage was the third greatest.

The 2018 season starts in only 11 days, as the Hokies visit Myrtle Beach, South Carolina to get a four-game championship, although their home opener is scheduled for Feb. 27 from Radford.
This season marks the 125th year of baseball in Tech.
This Wednesday, the Hokies will maintain media, which may be seen live on the group’s Facebook webpage — continue to inspect twitter or Facebook concerning the beginning time.
