Brown has leadership role with NU
- Updated: January 5, 2019
BOSTON – Senior Tyler Brown, a pitcher who played at Alvirne High School in Hudson, was named one of three captains for the 2019 Northeastern University baseball team Monday. Brown is joined by senior first baseman Jake Farrell and senior relief pitcher Andrew Misiaszek as team captains.
“I am very excited to have these three young men leading our program this year,” Northeastern coach Mike Glavine said. “They were elected by their peers, which is a tremendous honor. All three student-athletes will graduate on time. They have won on the field and have repeatedly led our team during our 19 Ways community service initiative. I look forward to watching their leadership grow during our 99th season.”
Brown, the lone carryover from the Huskies’ 2018 corps of captains, led the Huskies in starts (15) and innings pitched (84 and two-thirds) last season, firing 61 strikeouts while achieving an 8-4 record and a 4.68 ERA. Brown was particularly effective during CAA play, where he started seven of the team’s eight series-opening contests en route to registering a 6-1 record, a 2.20 ERA and a .189 opposing batting average.
Northeastern’s trio of 2019 captains each garnered all-conference consideration from the CAA last season. Farrell was selected to the All-CAA Second Team, while Brown and Misiaszek shared spots on the All-CAA Third Team.
