LUBBOCK, Texas – The College Baseball Foundation is proud to announce its third annual All-American team.
Thanks to the growth and success of the CBF’s three staple awards – the National Pitcher of the Year Award, the Brooks Wallace Award recognizing the top shortstop in the game and the John Olerud Two-Way Player of the Year Award – the CBF is once again honoring the top players from 2022 with its All-American team.
These players brought great success and attention to themselves and their teams and have proven to be outstanding ambassadors for the college game.
Leading the way for this year’s team is national player of the year candidate and 2022 National Pitcher of the Year winner Cooper Hjerpe, who had one of the most dominant seasons of any pitcher in college baseball history. The team also features Brooks Wallace Award winner Brooks Lee from Cal Poly and Olerud Award winner Paul Skenes from the Air Force Academy.
The players were chosen from voting done by the Foundation’s award committees.
