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

TUCSON, Ariz. — The 2005 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 3B Alex Gordon of Nebraska. Last season Gordon hit .365 with 18 homers, 18 doubles and knocked in 75 runs as the 6-foot-1, 215-pounder was named Big 12 Conference Player of The Year. He spent the past summer playing for Team USA as he hit .388 with four homers and 12 RBIs. He was the top offensive player in the World University Games as he hit .523 with two homers and knocked in five runs. Gordon may be the first college player taken in the June Draft.

For complete statistics on each All-American, purchase the Jan. 1 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. In addition, this issue features a special story on Nebraska's Alex Gordon as well as RHP Tim Lincecum of Washington who fanned a whopping 161 batters last season as a freshman despite only being 160 pounds.
