DeLand, Fla. - Stetson standout newcomer Ryan Lashley has been named as a Louisville Slugger Freshman All-American by Collegiate Baseball. Earlier he was voted to the Atlantic Sun Conference All-Freshman Team by the conference head coaches and sports information directors. The 6'0", 190lb shortstop out of Lake Worth, Florida (Park Vista High School) had a banner season for the Hatters.
Lashley played in all 58 games with 57 starts in his inaugural campaign. He led the team in home runs with 11, doubles with 20, runs batted in with 50, and at bats with 239. He was second overall in runs scored with 48 and slugging percentage at .556. Lashley was fifth in hitting with an impressive .335 batting average.
Lashley also led the team in multiple RBI games with 17, was second in multiple hit games with 25, and had a season-high nine-game hitting streak.
Although he was recruited as a shortstop Lashley began the season at first base to keep his bat in the lineup and played very well. Early on when Jacob deGrom moved to the starting rotation as a pitcher, Lashley returned to his native position and flourished for the Hatters. He also started two games at third base.
