EUGENE, Ore. – Cole Irvin has been named to the 2013 Baseball America Freshman All-America First-Team, the magazine announced today. The freshman All-America honor is the third of the summer for Irvin, who was previously named to the Louisville Slugger and NCBWA freshman All-America teams.
Irvin (Yorba Linda, Calif./Servite HS) set an Oregon record finishing with 12 wins while earning honorable mention all-conference recognition. He finished with a 12-3 record and a 2.48 ERA with four complete games. The left-hander finished second in program history in innings pitched (116.0) while also ranking in a tie for third all-time in starts (16).
