WACO, Texas – Baylor baseball freshman catcher Shea Langeliers was named a Baseball America first-team Freshman All-American, the organization announced Monday.
With the accolade, Langeliers is the first freshman in Baylor baseball history to earn Freshman All-American honors from three or more different publications as he has been honored by Baseball America, the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association, Collegiate Baseball and Perfect Game/Rawlings.
The first rookie to earn the honor since 2010 is the 21st Baylor Freshman All-American selection and the first to garner the distinction from Baseball America since Logan Vick in 2010. He’s the sixth overall choice in program history by Baseball America.
The Keller, Texas native was named to the All-Big 12 second team and Big 12 All-Freshman team as well. During the 2017 season, he hit .313 with 43 runs, 66 hits, 14 doubles, two triples, 10 home runs, 38 RBI, 114 total bases and 24 walks. He also threw out 26 base stealers at a 44 percent rate with a .991 fielding percentage in 55 starts.
He set the BU freshman catcher home run record and was one shy of tying the program’s all-time freshman home run records (Max Muncy, 11, 2010).
