Appalachian State University baseball continued to reel in the awards as pitcher Seth Grant and DH/1B Daniel Kassouf earned Southern Conference Pitcher and Player of the Month awards, as announced by the

league office on Tuesday.  Grant earned Pitcher of the Month honors after compiling a perfect 5-0 record in March to go along with a sterling 2.18 earned run average. The senior right-hander held opponents to a .211 (24-for-114) batting average last month and struck out 20 batters in 33.0 innings of work.
His complete-game shutout of Elon on March 24 is the only such performance in the SoCon this season and helped Grant end the month with 14.1 consecutive scoreless innings.
Kassouf was named Player of the Month after smashing opposing pitching to the tune of a .458 batting average in March (38-for-83). The senior slugger finished the month with seven doubles, eight homers and 26 RBI while scoring 25 runs.
He hit safely in 18-of-19 games during the month of March including 11 multi-hit performances and seven contests with multiple RBI. Kassouf scored a run in 15-of-19 games and score multiple runs in eight contests.
