(5-21-19) Six members on the Ohio State baseball team were named to All-Big Ten Teams, the conference office announced Tuesday afternoon. Junior outfielder Dominic Canzone was named a first team All-Big Ten selection, while sophomore catcher Dillon Dingler and senior outfielder Brady Cherry were named to the second team list. Redshirt freshman pitcher Seth Lonsway was honored on the third team. Joining Lonsway on the All-Freshman list are freshman shortstop Zach Dezenzo and freshman pitcher Garrett Burhenn. Fifth-year senior captain Ridge Winand was named as the team’s Sportsmanship Award Winner.

Lonsway, from Celina, Ohio, earns his first career Big Ten honors on the third team and All-Freshman team. He leads the conference in strikeouts (110) and strikeouts looking (34). Lonsway is 7-4 with a 3.91 ERA with one complete game victory on the year in 14 starts. He’s fanned a league-best 71 hitters in Big Ten games with opponents hitting .214. An OSU Scholar-Athlete, the left-hander has been honored by the conference four times this spring, three as pitcher of the week and one as freshman of the week.

The left hander was also named the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association Pitcher of the Week after he led the Buckeyes to a win over Purdue and striking out 14 Boilermakers.
