Kellogg Community College pitcher Tyler Bradner has received post-season baseball honors from the National Junior College Athletic Association.

Bradner, of Howell, was named to the 2015 NJCAA Division II Baseball All-American Second Team on June 8. The sophomore right-hander struck out 91 batters over 65.1 innings for the Bruins this season, ending his 2014-15 tenure with the team with a 1.65 ERA and team conference and regional titles.

Bradner, who has committed to play baseball at Oakland University next season, was also recognized with awards from the Michigan Community College Athletic Association last month, including First Team All-MCCAA and MCCAA Player of the Year honors.

KCC’s Bruins made their mark this season as conference and regional champions after winning the MCCAA conference championship and the NJCAA Division II North Baseball Tournament last month. The team finished the season with a 23-3 conference record and a 39-16 record overall after going 2-2 in NJCAA Division II World Series play in Enid, Okla., in what was the team’s sixth national championship appearance since 1999.
