Ole Miss’ third baseman Tyler Keenan was named to the second-team as a Freshman All-American by D1Baseball.com last week.
Keenan earned several honors his first season, including Freshman All-American nods from Perfect Game and Collegiate Baseball. The third baseman out of Clayton, North Carolina, was the only freshman in the Southeastern Conference to be named Player of the Week. He also brought home two SEC Freshman of the Week awards and is the first Ole Miss freshman to win Player of the Week since Alex Presley in 2004.
This season, Keenan finished with a .301 batting average in 54 games and 50 starts. He recorded 11 doubles and nine home runs, driving in 38 runs and scoring 35. He carried a .520 slugging percentage—the third-best on the team. Defensively, he made only five errors all season.
