Sophomore Billy Dimlow of the Emory University Baseball team was honored by D3Baseball.com Thursday morning as he was one of four starting pitchers to be named a First Team All-American.
Dimlow becomes just the fourth player in Emory history to be named to the D3Baseball.com All-America teams and is the second to be selected to the First Team, joining former outfielder Brett Lake who earned the honor in 2014. D3Baseball.com has announced All-America teams since 2007.
Earlier this week, Dimlow was chosen to the First Team All-South Region by both D3Baseball.com and ABCA/Rawlings and was named the D3Baseball.com's South Region Pitcher of the Year. Previously, the Sammamish, WA native earned University Athletic Association Co-Pitcher of the Year acclaim as well as All-UAA First Team honors.
Dimlow was a six-game winner in 2017, finishing the campaign with a 6-2 record in 11 starts with 83 strikeouts and a 1.09 earned-run average in 74 innings pitched. He ranked among the NCAA Division III leaders in ERA (4th), strikeouts (34th) and strikeout-to-walk ratio (43rd).
