Senior pitcher Tyler Erickson from Castleton State College earned the NEIBA Pitcher of the Year award and enters this week’s NCAA Regional with an overall record of 10-2.
Erickson helped lead Castleton State to a North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) title this spring with a 2.03 ERA, 75 strikeouts, and only 11 walks allowed.
He limited the 342 batters he faced to a .199 average.
Erickson was a member of the 2011 Torrington Titans after coming over from the Bethlehem Plowboys of the Tri-State Baseball League early in the Titans season.
The crafty right hander was a workhorse for manager Gregg Hunt, leading the team in innings pitched with 55.1 while sporting a 4-3 record. 
Erickson pitched two complete games, including a 1-0 complete game jem over the Martha’s Vineyard Sharks on August 1. Erickson struck out 14 while allowing just 3 hits.
Erickson is from Naugatuck, CT and attended Holy Cross High School.
