2011 Baseball America All-American Teams

FROM CBD NEWS SOURCE
DURHAM, N.C.—College Player of the Year Trevor Bauer headlines Baseball America’s 2011 College All-America team.

Even in a year when new bat standards resulted in diminished offense and stronger pitching numbers across the country, Bauer stood out for his mind-boggling strikeout numbers and remarkable consistency. No college pitcher was as utterly dominant as UCLA’s junior righthander, who led the nation with 10 complete games (nine consecutive) and a Pac-10-record 203 strikeouts—52 more than second-place Danny Hultzen. Through super regionals, Bauer also ranked second in the nation in wins and third in ERA. His dominance and talent made him the No. 3 overall pick by the Diamondbacks.

Bauer, who led the nation in strikeouts for the second straight season, leads a group of four repeat members of BA’s College All-America team. Like Bauer, Virginia’s Hultzen and Texas’ Taylor Jungmann were second-teamers as sophomores in 2010 who became first-teamers in 2011. Utah’s C.J. Cron moved up from the third team to the first team. Hultzen was also a third-teamer as a freshman, making him the lone three-time All-American on this list.

Four members of BA’s preseason All-America first team earned postseason first team honors, as well: Hultzen, Jungmann, Louisiana State’s Mikie Mahtook and Hawaii’s Kolten Wong. Overall, just 12 preseason All-Americans (including Bauer, a second-teamer) landed on the postseason team. In 2010, 18 preseason All-Americans landed on the postseason team.

For the second straight year, 17 conferences are represented on the three All-America teams, plus the independent ranks. Eight conferences landed multiple players on the teams, led by the Southeastern Conference with nine, including three first-teamers. The Atlantic Coast Conference produced the most first-teamers (four), and the second-most All-Americans overall (six). The Big 12 was third with four All-Americans, followed by the Pac-10, Southern, Atlantic Sun and Western Athletic conferences with three apiece.

Vanderbilt led all schools with four All-Americans—all of them on the second team. Fellow SEC co-champion and College World Series participant South Carolina was next with three players on the three teams. The CWS field features a total of 13 All-Americans, including five members of the first team.

More freshmen and seniors made the All-America team in 2011 than a year ago. First-teamer Colin Moran of North Carolina leads a trio of freshmen (up from two in 2010), and fellow first-teamer Cody Martin of Gonzaga headlines a contingent of four seniors (up from one in 2010). Juniors, as usual, made up the bulk of the teams, producing 32 All-Americans, including 11 members of the first team.

The staff of Baseball America selected the All-America teams after the round of regional play. For more information on Baseball America magazine, visit www.baseballamerica.com
