Led by Ferreira, Five Crimson Earn Baseball All-Ivy Nods

Five Crimson honorees is the most since 2007.

PRINCETON, N.J. – Senior catcher Ethan Ferreira led a cast of five Crimson who earned All-Ivy honors, the League announced Thursday. Ferreira garnered first team honors, while fellow classmates Mike Martin and Jake McGuiggan picked up second team nods, and Matt Timoney and freshman Conor Quinn were named to the honorable mention team.

Ferreira, a product of Reheboth, Massachusetts, had his best season ever as a member of the Crimson. The co-captain belted out a program-record 21-game hit streak, slashing .361/.425/.594 in 2015. He scored 30 runs and drove in 35 RBI with 23 extra-base hits. For his efforts on and off the field, Ferreira earned Capital One Academic All-District honors as well.

Both Martin and McGuiggan enjoyed stellar senior seasons as well. Martin was an ever-consistent presence both at the plate and in center field. An owner of a 19-game hit streak this season, he hit .301/.375/.425 with a career-best 30 runs and 18 RBI, and was perfect in center field with 87 putouts and three assists.

Though McGuiggan missed nine games due to injury down the stretch, he hit .347/.362/.504 with eight doubles, a triple and three home runs, driving in 26 RBI and scoring 23 times. Splitting time between first and second base, McGuiggan fielded .958 with 72 putouts and 65 assists in 143 chances, helping to turn 16 double plays. Perhaps the most memorable moment was belting a home run over the Green Monster at Fenway Park in the Beanpot Consolation game versus Northeastern.

Timoney was by far the ace of the staff this season, giving Harvard six wins with him on the mound (6-1). The Glenside, Pennsylvania, native owned a career-best 3.91 ERA, making nine appearances. He struck out 40 in 50.2 innings of work for a respectable 7.11 strikeouts per game average.

Quinn was a member of a very productive freshman class for the Crimson, seeing time in 39 games this season as a rookie. The Amherst, Massachusetts, native hit .291/.367/.366 with seven doubles, 20 runs scored and 17 RBI. Like McGuiggan, Quinn sent a moonshot over the Green Monster in the Beanpot consolation on April 22. He sported a .923 with 48 putouts in 52 chances in right field as well.
