Hatcher Selected Preseason All-America

Western Carolina senior right-hander Preston Hatcher was named to the Louisville Slugger Preseason All-America team as selected and released by Collegiate Baseball.

A first-team All-Southern Conference reliever a season ago, Hatcher made both a team and career-high 29 appearances, tossing 52.0 innings. He finished tied for the team lead with six victories (6-2) and was third in the SoCon with 10 saves - a mark which ranked tied for second in WCU's single-season record books. He recorded 55 strikeouts on the season, tallying at least one punch-out in all but three outings and three-or-more strikeouts nine times.

Midway through the season, Hatcher was featured on the official watch list among 45 other pitchers for 2012 National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA) Stopper of the Year Award.
