Methodist Baseball's Kachler Earns Preseason All-America Nod

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C.  Junior Alex Kachler is picking up exactly where he left off last season -- on a D3baseball All-American team.

Kachler on Thursday was named the Website's 2019 preseason honorable mention all-American catcher, a position he had also earned on the 2018 postseason all-American squad.

Last spring Kachler led the USA South Athletic Conference in RBIs (59) and doubles (18), was second in the league in hits (69), third in total bases (107) and fourth in slugging percentage (.615).

His RBI total was 13th nationally, his doubles tied for 35th most in the nation, and his hit total finished the 2018 season tied for 42nd nationally.

Kachler closed out last year as the first-team all-conference catcher, using the honor to springboard to his honorable mention all-American selection.
