Gold Glove Award Arrives ... Two Years Later
WINTERVILLE—Two years after former Pitt Community College first baseman Trey Holmes was named one of nine NJCAA Division I Rawlings Gold Glove Award recipients, the trophy commemorating his prestigious honor finally arrived. Coach Tommy Eason presented the Salisbury native with his award this past weekend.
After helping lead PCC to the 2010 NJCAA Division I World Series, Holmes was named an NJCAA Division I Second Team All-American, Region X Conference Player of the Year, and the Region X Conference’s Defensive Player of the Year. He also earned the Rawlings Gold Glove Award for recording 360 putouts and 12 assists with zero errors in 54 games for the Bulldogs.
After two years at Pitt, Holmes moved on to Appalachian State University and helped the Mountaineers reach the postseason in 2012. In two seasons with Holmes at first, Appalachian State went 74-45.
Holmes scored 68 runs and knocked in 84 more after batting .284 with 10 homers, 29 doubles and three triples in two seasons as a Mountaineer. His defensive prowess never waned as he committed just nine errors in tallying 1,095 putouts.
