Post-season accolades continue to pile up for the Webster University baseball team, who will be welcomed back to campus today after their trip to the World Series in Appleton, Wis.
The Rawlings Company and the American Baseball Coaches Association have named senior David Mueller 2012 Central Regional Pitcher of the Year and head coach Bill Kurich the 2012 Central Region Coach of the Year.
