Trettel's streak stopped short of D-III record

Washington & Jefferson junior center fielder Andy Trettel had his 55-game on-base streak came to an end on Tuesday when he went 0-for-3 during the Presidents' 6-2 loss to Thomas More at Ross Memorial Park.

During the streak, Trettel batted .351 (67-of-191) with eight home runs and 53 RBI. He scored 62 runs during the 55 games.

Trettel's streak started on April 5, 2009, when he went 2-for-4 in the first game of a doubleheader at Westminster. He kept the streak active by recording at least one base hit 43 times. During the games he was held hitless, the streak remained active because Trettel either drew a walk (nine times) or was hit by a pitch (three times).

Trettel’s 55-game streak is the second-longest in NCAA Division III history. Salve Regina’s Damian Costantino retains the longest streak in history at 60 games.
