Wellbrock recognized for impressive season
Senior right-handed pitcher Chase Wellbrock was named to the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association Stopper of the Year Midseason Watch List, which honors the nation’s top relief pitcher.
Wellbrock was just one of 50 baseball student athletes across the nation and one of two who represent the American Athletic Conference to be honored on this prestigious list through the first 40 games.
Wellbrock became the UH all-time saves leader this season after recording his 17th save of his career, surpassing Ryan Wagner’s 16 saves — which was a record for 11 years. Wellbrock currently has 20 career saves, eight coming this season.
He leads the conference and is one of the nation’s best with an ERA of 0.68 in 15 appearances. He holds a 3-0 record with eight saves and has struck out 24 in 26.2 innings this season, while walking just three — two of which were intentional walks.
