Baseball America has chosen St. John Fisher College junior Justin D’Amato (Newark 2011) as its 2013 NCAA Division III Pitcher of the Year. The announcement was made in Baseball America’s 2013 Small College Preview. To read the full preview, click here.

D’Amato is entering his third season as a starting pitcher at St. John Fisher College, an emerging powerhouse in the NCAA Division III New York Region. Through two collegiate campaigns, D’Amato has earned numerous accolades and has pitched the Cardinals to 20 victories. Overall, the junior boasts a 20-2 record in 25 appearances and a 2.67 career earned run average. D’Amato has thrown five complete game shutouts and struck out 180 batters in 145.0 innings.

Last spring, the Canadaigua, N.Y., native helped lead St. John Fisher to the NCAA Division III regionals for the third time in school history. D’Amato went undefeated (11-0) in 13 appearances and limited opponents with a 2.14 earned run average. He set school single-season records for wins and strikeouts (97). The left-handed hurler enters his junior season needing just three more wins and 23 strikeouts to become the school’s career leader in both categories.

The SJFC southpaw is a two-time D3Baseball.com All-American (2011, 2012), two-time ABCA/Rawlings All-American (2011, 2012) and a two-time Empire 8 Conference Pitcher of the Year (2011, 2012). In addition, D’Amato has earned a pair of All-New York Region accolades from D3Baseball.com.

Justin won a Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League championship with the Newark Pilots in 2011. He was named second team All-PGCBL and earned recognition as a PGCBL Rising Star. D’Amato, following his freshman season at St. John Fisher, went 2-0 with a 3.38 earned run average in seven appearances. He finished fourth among all PGCBL pitchers with 52 strikeouts. In two PGCBL postseason outings, D’Amato allowed just one run and struck out 14. Against Amsterdam in Game 3 of the 2011 PGCBL Championship Series, the southpaw retired all nine men he faced in relief to help Newark clinch the league crown.
