Notre Dame pitcher named Freshman All-American
SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- The Notre Dame baseball team notched their first Freshman All-American since 2020 on Wednesday, as left-handed pitcher Jack Findlay was awarded the honor by Collegiate Baseball.
Findlay has handled well in his first season as one of the most reliable arms for the Irish, so far sitting with a record of 5-2 on the season.
The New Jersey native has compiled 44 strikeouts and has an ERA of 2.11, the lowest on the team among qualified pitchers.
Head coach Link Jarrett noted that Findlay was one of the first prospects that he wanted to land when he became head coach of the Irish in 2020.
“Findlay has been so unselfish as he performed in virtually every role possible as a pitcher. I will always remember thinking as I watched him pitch that this will be the first player I end up landing at Notre Dame. He is a poised competitor with a tremendous future and we are proud of his well-deserved award,” said Jarrett.
Findlay has been calm under pressure as of late as well, earning two saves in the Statesboro Regional against #21 Georgia Southern and #24 Texas Tech.
