ST. LOUIS - The American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA) has named SLU reliever Travis Parker a Rawlings third-team All-American and a first-team All-Midwest Region pick following a vote of college head coaches.

Parker, who previously was named a Louisville Slugger second-team All-American by Collegiate Baseball Newspaper, becomes the first Billiken since 2001 to claim first-team All-Region honors.

Parker did not allow an earned run all season, posting a 3-1 ledger on the mound in a school-record 27 appearances. He recorded a school-record 12 saves and struck out 32 batters. Parker owns the school record with 22 career saves and ends his career with a 1.61 ERA in 50 appearances.

This season, Parker helped SLU set the school record in wins as the Billikens went 41-18. SLU also claimed a share of the Atlantic 10 Conference regular-season title for the first time in school history.
