Martin tabbed to D2CCA All-America baseball team

MARSHALL, Minn. --- Tusculum University's Daulton Martin has been selected as the first team second baseman for the 2019 Division II Conference Commissioners Association (D2CCA) Baseball All-America Team.

Martin earns his second All-America plaudit this year after garnering first team honors by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA).

Martin, a junior from Lancaster, Pennsylvania, is a three-time All-South Atlantic Conference selection and led Tusculum with his .362 batting average while also leading the league with his 22 doubles (T6th in NCAA II) and 52 walks (3rd in NCAA II).  He also led Tusculum with his eight home runs, 112 totals bases, .633 slugging percentage, .518 on-base percentage (18th in NCAA II) and five sacrifice flies.

Martin accounted for 15 multiple-hit games while also going 17-of-22 in stolen bases and was hit by pitch 11 times. 

In 2018, Martin garnered All-America honors by the NCBWA (2nd Team) and the American Baseball Coaches Association (3rd Team).  This is his first D2CCA All-America nod.

In his 153-game career with the Pioneers, Martin is batting .384 which is the ninth-highest average in school history.  He is also listed throughout the TU record book where his 54 career doubles are tied for the most in program history.  He is fifth all-time in hits (214), fifth in triples (11), seventh in RBI (129), third in total bases (338), second in walks (105), fifth in hit by pitch (26) and second in career on-base percentage (.498).

Martin is majoring in business management and is a member of the SAC Commissioner's Honor Roll and the Tusculum Athletic Director's Honor Roll.

The Division II Conference Commissioners Association encourages and promotes Division II athletics and high standards of sportsmanship as important elements of higher education. The CCA is a key communications link among the conferences as they discuss views, policies and regulations that impact Division II intercollegiate athletics and works closely with the NCAA as a communications channel to NCAA Division II member colleges and universities.
