Luther College senior Joe Silversmith has been named to the 2017 D3baseball.com All-Central Region team as a second team honoree at third base.
The 2017 season marks the sixth year that D3baseball.com has named All-Region teams, with 800 players nominated. The ballot was then made available to SIDs, who voted for a predetermined number of players in their region, as well as D3baseball.com staff and contributors.
This is the second postseason honor Silversmith has received. He was named first-team all-Iowa Conference, the second time during his career he has been an all-conference selection.
Silversmith led the Norse in batting average (.367), RBI (33), triples (5), home runs (5), slugging percentage (.648) and on-base percentage (.462). He also stole a team-high 14 bases in 14 tries. He helped lead Luther to an overall record of 27-17, 15-9 in the Iowa Conference.
