STORRS, Conn. (June 22, 2012) – LJ Mazzilli and Scott Oberg both garnered recognition from the American Baseball Coaches Association as members of the ABCA All-Northeast Regional Second Team.
Both players, who were selected in the MLB Draft earlier this month, were previously named to the All-BIG EAST First Team and NEIBA All-Star Team.
Mazzilli was named the second baseman of the second team after completing his junior season in which he hit a team-leading .339 out of the three-hole and slugged a team-high nine home runs, while also leading the team with 38 RBI. He stole 16 bases and tied for the team lead in runs with 43. Mazzilli was drafted by the Minnesota Twins in the ninth round with the 280th overall pick.
Oberg had a historic season for Connecticut after sitting out all of 2011. He posted a 0.99 earned run average, the first sub-1.00 ERA in program history since 1976. Oberg, a redshirt-junior, finished with nine saves and an unblemished 5-0 record. Twice in his career he reached the five-win mark, without starting a single game; only the second player to do so since 1990. Oberg was selected in the 15th round by the Colorado Rockies with the 468th pick. He currently plays for the Grand Junction Rockies of the Pioneer League.
