2009 ABCA/Rawlings Division I All-American Teams Announced

FROM ABCA RELEASE
abca_BGOMAHA, Neb. – The American Baseball Coaches Association announced the ABCA/Rawlings Sporting Goods All-American teams on Wednesday, June 17.

Among the First Team honorees are six players participating in this year’s College World Series including Arizona State starting pitcher Mike Leake, LSU starting pitcher Louis Coleman, Arizona State catcher Carlos Ramirez, UNC first baseman Dustin Ackley, ASU outfielder Jason Kipnis and Virginia utility player Danny Hultzen.

The ABCA All-American teams are collegiate baseball’s oldest selections, dating to 1949.  All Division I coaches have the opportunity to nominate and vote on these selections, which are initially compiled into eight All-Region teams.  These teams are then finalized as the first, second and third All-American teams by the ABCA’s NCAA Division I All-American and Coach of the Year Committee, chaired by Dean Ehehalt of Monmouth University (NJ).  This year, the committee selected 65 players as 2009 ABCA All-Americans.

    Congratulations to all who made the teams. Especially nice to see the WAC well-represented.
    I have an off-question for Aggie2k1: Do your Aggies wear Under Armour unis? They looked really sharp at the WAC Tourney.
