YORK, PA – The York College baseball program received good news on Tuesday as junior Seth Brosius earned all-conference honors as the Capital Athletic Conference announced their all-star baseball squads.
Brosius earned second-team All-CAC honors as he is the first Spartan in the last three years to receive league honors. Brosius is the 14th player to be recognized by the league under the leadership of head coach Mike Scappa.
Brosius had an outstanding junior year as he made the shift from behind the plate and found a new home in right field. He finished the year hitting .341 with 31 runs scored, 16 doubles, six home runs, 39 RBI and stole four bases. He boasted a slugging percentage of .541 and an on-base percentage of .407. Brosius led the Spartans in doubles, home runs, RBI, and at-bats. He was third in runs scored, second in hits, and second in batting average.
Brosius ranked second in the CAC in doubles, fifth in hits, eighth in RBI, and 11th in home runs.
What makes Brosius's season more impressive is he accomplished all his numbers this year despite a painful knee injury that hampered him much of the campaign.
For his career, Brosius has played in 100 games as he owns a .327 career batting average. He has scored 71 runs, notched 129 hits, recorded 27 doubles, two triples and nine home runs. Brosius has knocked in 76 runs and has posted an on-base percentage of .390 and a slugging percentage of .473.
Brosius finished his 2017 season on a tear. He concluded the season with an active nine game hitting streak while he had at least one hit in 18 of his final 19 games of the season. He tied his career high with hits as he had four knocks in the May 3 game at Rutgers-Camden. He has now had three straight seasons with one four-hit game. He notched a career-high tying two doubles in a pair of games this year. Brosius set a new career-high with seven RBI in the April 9 romp over Mary Washington. He also set a new career-high with two home runs in the win over the Eagles.
Brosius will headline a strong core of returners as seven players who had over 100 at-bats during the year will be back in the Green and White in 2018. York will also return nine pitchers who logged 14 innings or more during the year.
