Buena Vista junior righthander Jon Ringblom (Omaha, Neb./Ringblom) has added to his postseason accolades for the year by being voted to the 2013 Rawlings All-Central Region Baseball Second Team by the American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA).
Ringblom earns such recognition for the first time in his career and it's the fourth straight season that BVU has landed at least one pitcher on one of the three ABCA All-Region teams.
For the year, the he posted a 5-2 overall record in 10 appearances with a 2.19 ERA. In 61.2 innings of work, he recorded 61 strikeouts and allowed just 20 total runs. Opponents finished the year hitting only .245 against him.
The honor is in addition to his First Team All-IIAC selection earlier this month. He was one of 12 Iowa Conference players to earn ABCA All-Region recognition and was one of five league selections voted to the Second Team.
Ringblom was the ace of a BVU pitching staff that finished the season at 23-19 overall (15-13 IIAC). He helped guide the program to a third-place conference finish and its fifth-straight Iowa Conference Tournament.
