Sulser, a 6-2, 195-pound right-handed pitcher from Santa Ysabel, California, is one week removed from being selected as the Ivy League Pitcher of the Year while earning a spot on the All-Ivy League First Team. Three times he was named the Ivy League Pitcher of the Week during the season as he posted a 6-1 record over seven starts with a miniscule 1.40 ERA that not only leads the league, but also ranks sixth among Division I pitchers. With 52 strikeouts and just five walks in 45.0 innings, Sulser boasted the best strikeout-to-walk ratio (10.40, third nationally) and fewest walks issued per nine innings (1.0, 10th nationally) in the Ivy League. He also held the opposition to a league-low .201 batting average, and his WHIP (walks and hits per inning pitched) of 0.80 ranks fifth in the country as well.
Two other Big Green players made the third team — senior pitcher Michael Danielak and junior outfielder Kyle Holbrook. Danielak, a second-team All-Ivy League selection, tied for second in the league with seven victories against just two defeats in nine starts that spanned 58.0 innings. The right-hander from Mt. Prospect, Illinois, struck out a team-high 55 batters and walked just 10 in recording a 2.64 ERA, third-best in the conference.
Holbrook, a native of Broomfield, Colorado, led the Green in batting (.329) and RBIs (31) as a consistent force at the plate all season. He reached base at least once in 38 of the 40 games during the season, including a streak of 23 consecutive games, plus tied for the team lead with 50 hits, 16 multi-hit games and nine games with at least two RBIs while collecting eight doubles and four home runs.
Rhode Island second baseman Chris Hess (.344/.415/.541, 5 HR, 43 RBI) was named the NEIBA Player of the Year, while Fairfield's Garrett Wallace (8-4, 2.94ERA, 72 K and 10 BB in 85.2 IP) was tabbed the Pitcher of the Year. Mason Feole of Connecticut (7-3, 3.10 ERA, 72 K in 78.1 IP) garnered Rookie of the Year honors, and John Stuper of Yale was chosen as the Coach of the Year for leading the Bulldogs to its first Ivy League championship and NCAA Regional berth in 23 years.
