WACO, TEXAS - Baylor baseball freshman catcher Shea Langeliers was named a 2017 Collegiate Baseball Freshman All-American, the organization announced Wednesday.
The Keller, Texas native is the first to earn the honor since 2010 (Logan Vick, Max Muncy) and is the 19th all-time Baylor freshman All-American selection. He is the 14th to garner the distinction from Collegiate Baseball.
Langeliers was named to the All-Big 12 second team and Big 12 All-Freshman team two weeks ago 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).
