Conor Bierfeldt named to ECAC New England All-Star First Team

CENTERVILLE, MA - Western Connecticut State University senior Conor Bierfeldt (Torrington, CT) has been named to the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Division III Baseball New England First Team.

This past spring, Bierfeldt led the Colonials in virtually every offensive category.  He batted .396, had nine home runs, four triples, 16 doubles and had 54 runs batted in.  He scored 40 runs, had a .776 slugging percentage and .506 on-base percentage.

From the bump, he was 1-2 with 19 strike outs and six walks over 28 innings for the 17-24 Colonials.

During his final season, Bierfeldt manned center field, threw off the mound, sported the catcher's gear and swung the bat as Head Coach John Susi's designated hitter.

Last week, Bierfeldt was drafted in the 29th round by the Baltimore Orioles in the MLB First-Year Players Draft.
