HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - With the 2019 season just around the corner, Rainbow Warrior baseball pitcher Dylan Thomas was named to the Preseason Second Team All-America by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers.

Thomas, a redshirt junior, returned to Manoa for this season after being selected by the Minnesota Twins in the 38th round of the 2019 MLB Draft.

In 2018, Thomas received First Team All-Big West honors and was the first Warrior to earn ABCA/Rawlings All-Region Second Team honors since 2011.

Thomas was lights out for the ‘Bows last season with 14 saves, good enough for 14th nationally.

The Warriors will open their season Friday, February 15th against Portland at Les Murakami Stadium. First pitch is set for 6:35 p.m. HT.
