Gilmore, eight Chants top All-Big South baseball list

ccubase-gilmoreCoastal Carolina was well represented on the 2016 Big South Baseball All-Conference team and swept the league’s top three individual awards as Connor Owings was named Big South Player of the Year, Andrew Beckwith was named Big South Pitcher of the Year and Gary Gilmore was named Big South Coach of the Year.

Tyler Chadwick was named Academic All-Big South for the third consecutive season in a vote of the league’s sports information directors. Overall, eight Chanticleers were voted All-Big South by the league’s coaches including first team picks Owings (OF), Beckwith (SP), Zach Remillard (INF), G.K. Young (DH), Mike Morrison (RP); second team selections Michael Paez (INF) and Alex Cunningham (SP) as well as honorable mention pick Billy Cooke (OF).

Owings is the 12th Big South Player of the Year from Coastal Carolina, while Beckwith is the sixth Chanticleer to be named Big South Pitcher of the Year since the award’s inception for the 2007 season. Gilmore, who is in his 22nd season at his alma mater, earns his eighth Big South Coach of the Year award.

Coastal was 21-3 in conference play, won the Big South regular season title by seven games and won all eight conference series this season, including five sweeps. In Big South history, only nine teams have won 20-plus conference games with CCU accomplishing the feat five times. Also, with CCU taking a 4-15 record into the Big South Championship this week, a total of 31 teams have won at least 40 games in a season with CCU accomplishing the feat for the 14th time.

Coastal Carolina, which leads the NCAA in home runs with 85, leads the Big South in batting average (.305), runs scored (437), hits (563), slugging percentage (.500), walks drawn (276), stolen bases (96), sacrifice bunts (59), ERA (3.59), strikeouts (449), opponent batting average (.250).
