TUCSON, Ariz. — The 2001 Louisville Slugger pre-season All-American baseball teams, selected by Collegiate Baseball newspaper, features a who’s who of NCAA Division I baseball players.

The pre-season pick as National Player of The Year is RHP Kip Bouknight of the University of South Carolina who posted a 17-1 overall record, 2.81 ERA, 143 strikeouts and only 34 walks in 144 innings. He was named National Player of The Year by four outlets last year, including Collegiate Baseball. He recently was named the winner of the Golden Spikes Award from USA Baseball as the nation's top amateur baseball player.

For complete statistics on each player, purchase the Jan. 5 issue of Collegiate Baseball newspaper.
