Ryan McCarty named Philadelphia Baseball Review DIII Player of the Year
Penn State Abington senior Ryan McCarty is the Philadelphia Baseball Review Division III Player of the Year, the publication announced Wednesday. 

McCarty won the Division III regular-season triple crown leading the nation in batting average, home runs, and RBI. He finished the year with a .529 batting average, 89 runs, 91 RBI, 220 total bases, and a 1.164 slugging percentage. 

The 220 total bases and 89 runs are single-season Division III records. In addition, McCarty also became the second Division III player to record 100-plus hits in a single season. 

McCarty also performed well on the mound, appearing in 13 games during the season while posting a 4-2 record with four saves. He collected 21 strikeouts over 26 1/3 innings. 

In addition to earning honors from the Philadelphia Baseball Review, McCarty was a semifinalist for the Golden Spikes Award and was named D3baseball.com's Player of the Year. He also earned Player of the Year accolades from the United East Conference and was named a Rawlings All-American. 

The Yardley native will play for the Harwich Mariners in the Cape Cod League later this month before turning his attention to the Major League Baseball Amateur Draft in July. 

Abington wrapped up the 2022 season with a 33-11 overall record marking the most victories in the program's Division III era. The Nittany Lions qualified for the postseason for the 10th time and made their sixth straight appearance in the United East Tournament. Abington has appeared in the conference championship game in 2019, 2021, and 2022 with a victory in 2019.
