NEWPORT NEWS, Va. – After capturing a share of its third regular season title in the past four years, Charlotte has been selected to win the 2010 Atlantic 10 baseball title in voting conducted by the league’s head coaches. Xavier, the 2009 A-10 Tournament Champion, was picked second, while Dayton, the 2009 Conference regular season champion, rounds out the top three.

On the mound, Charlotte also returns all three weekend starters from a year ago, with a combined 16-8 season record, along with redshirt senior relief pitcher Bryan Hamilton, who recently garnered Preseason All-America status.
