    Wow ! Tyler Hannah of Troy 1st team over Kris Bryant of USD AND Colin Morin of UNC ? What’s wrong with this picture ? 

  • http://collegebaseballdaily.com Brian Foley

    Troy got two first team All-Americans…Ray and Hannah are good but Hannah shouldn’t be a first teamer right now. 

  • AGrizzlyWinter

    Eric Stamets from the University of Evansville should have been somewhere on here. Maybe not a first teamer, but the kid can flat out play in every aspect of the game. BBCOR SUCKS!

    • http://collegebaseballdaily.com Brian Foley

      Stamets is a kid who should have been considered.
