All-American Teams College - Collegiate Baseball Newspaper

PRESS RELEASE

For Immediate Release: Thursday, Dec. 20, 2001

"LOUISVILLE SLUGGER'S" PRE-SEASON ALL-AMERICAN BASEBALL TEAMS

TUCSON, Ariz. — The 2002 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 Bobby Brownlie of Rutgers. Many scouts feel he will be the first college player taken in next June's Free Agent Draft. Last season for the Scarlet Knights, the 6-foot-1, 195-pounder posted a 6-3 record, 2.36 ERA and fanned 86 batters with only 17 walks despite missing a month due to a broken thumb on his pitching hand.

During the summer, he recorded a 7-0 record for Team USA. In a team-high 53.6 innings, he allowed just 32 hits (30 of which were singles) while walking 11 and striking out 63. He led Team USA in wins, innings pitched and strikeouts. His ERA was a team-best 0.84.

For complete statistics on each All-American, purchase the Jan. 4 issue of Collegiate Baseball newspaper. This edition also has NCAA Division I conference rundowns on the projected teams to beat, conference players of the year, and players to watch, plus an in-depth story on top college draft eligible players.

The three All-American teams include (with partial statistics from last season for first team members):
