Clint Hardy named All-American from NCBWA

GRU Augusta sophomore outfielder Clint Hardy has been named a third-team selection on the 2015 NCBWA Division II Baseball All-America Team. The All-America Team was administered by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association.

Clint Hardy was named Peach Belt All-Conference and All-Region from Daktronics and the NCBWA already this year.
A sophomore transfer from Western Kentucky, Hardy returned to his hometown in Augusta, Ga., and ended the season with the eighth-best batting average in the entire nation with a .445 clip. The top batting average belonged to Player of the Year Will Albertson who hit .481.

Hardy led the entire Peach Belt with a .445 batting average and paced GRU in slugging percentage (.740), on-base percentage (.494), scored runs (49), doubles (13), triples (three), steals (11-for-11), and ranked second in homers (eight). Hardy had 23 multi-hit games and ended the season with 19 hits in his final 33 at bats.

Founded in 1962, the NCBWA is dedicated to the advancement of college baseball. Membership is open to writers, broadcasters and publicists of the sport. Members receive a membership card, directory, newsletter updates and official votes in the Dick Howser Trophy (Player of the Year), Regional Players of the Year and NCBWA All-America voting. The NCBWA also sponsors preseason All-American awards, publication and writing contests.
