Dooley finishes his career as an All-American.

Starting pitcher for the Webster University baseball team Steven Dooley has been named to the 2013 ABCA/Rawlings All-American Team. A graduating senior, Dooley was voted to the All-American Third Team and is the third Gorlok pitcher in the last four years to receive the honor.

Joining Dooley on the ABCA/Rawlings All-Central Region First Team is fellow pitcher sophomore Isaac Behme.

Webster head coach Bill Kurich was named the Region’s 2013 Coach of the Year. This was his second straight year and third year overall voted the Central Region Coach of the Year, having won the honor in 2012 and 2008 as well. He was named the D3baseball.com Central Region Coach of the Year for 2013 as well.

In addition, earlier this month Dooley was chosen as the St. Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Conference 2013 Pitcher of the Year. He also received SLIAC First Team All-Conference recognition and was named the Most Valuable Player in the 2013 SLIAC Tournament.

Dooley wound up 10-3 for the year, with a 2.69 earned run average and 71 strikeouts. Along with teammate Isaac Behme, a sophomore from Harrisburg High School, Ill., he set a Webster single season record for wins. Dooley finishes his career at Webster first on the all-time high list in appearances (58), second in wins (21) and strikeouts (209), and fourth in ERA (3.02).

Gorlok Will Savage (2007-10) was named to the ABCA/Rawlings All-Amercan First Team in 2010, and David Mueller (2010-12) was named to the All-American Second Team in 2012.
