WALTHAM, Mass. – Bentley University junior center fielder Max Troiani (Pittsford, N.Y./Pittsford Mendon HS) has collected two more postseason awards with selection to the 2019 Division II All-East Region second team by both the American Baseball Coaches Association and the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association. The ABCA team is sponsored by Rawlings.

Troiani was previously honored as a second-team All-Region performer by the Division II Conference Commissioner's Association and was a first-team All-Northeast-10 Conference selection. In addition, he was voted to the Division II Google Cloud Academic All-District team.

Troiani had a standout season for the Falcons, who closed out the season with 21 wins in their final 31 games. The team's leadoff hitter batted .320 and slugged .566 with his 56 hits including ten doubles, three triples and nine home runs. He scored 50 times, drove in 29 runs, was perfect on 17 stolen base attempts and tracked down 119 fly balls in the outfield.

Troiani was second in the NE10 in home runs and runs scored, fourth in RBI and slugging percentage, seventh in triples and eighth in stolen bases. Three of his homers came in an April 19 win at nationally-ranked Southern New Hampshire, a performance that helped him earn NCBWA Division II National Hitter of the Week honors.

Troiani, who owns a .315 career average, hit .352 and had a .703 slugging percentage in NE10 Northeast Division contests and was 13-for-36 (.361) with runners in scoring position.
