Prep Baseball Report named Thomas Lane ’15 its 2015 Massachusetts High School Baseball Player of the Year on its website www.prepbaseballreport.com.
Headed next year to pitch in the ACC for Boston College, Lane turned in one of the most dominant seasons in the 151-year history of Andover baseball. In 10 pitching appearances, Lane posted an unblemished 8-0 record with a pair of saves, while allowing just two earned runs (and five runs in total) in 46.0 innings of work for an ERA of just 0.30. He struck out 49 batters, walked just 17, and limited opponents to a paltry .160 batting average. Lane surrendered just three hits and struck out six while earning a complete-game win in Andover’s 5-1 victory over Tabor Academy in the Central New England Prep semifinals.
Earlier this year, Lane was named First-Team ABCA/Rawlings All-Region and All-Central New England Prep.
