Four Aggies Named Baseball America All-Americans

COLLEGE STATION, Texas – The No. 1 Texas A&M Aggies landed their largest All-America haul ever from Baseball America on Tuesday. The Maroon and White had four players named to the Baseball America All-America teams, including Ryne Birk and Boomer White on the First Team and Mark Ecker and Brigham Hill on the Second Team.

Texas A&M led the nation with their two first-team selections and four overall nods. Clemson, Louisville and Virginia each had three All-Americans.

He set the SEC record for most hits in league play, notching 57 knocks in 30 games. White batted .471 with 24 runs, 13 doubles, three home runs and 28 RBI in league play.

Ecker, an All-SEC Second Team pitcher, is 4-2 with eight saves, a 0.41 ERA, .162 batting average and 52 strikeouts in 44.0 innings. His WHIP (0.64) and strikeout-to-walk ratio (13.00) are otherworldly. In SEC play, he went 3-1 with a 0.00 ERA, three saves and a 34 strikeouts.
