Wildcat Baseball Hauls in Numerous Postseason Honors

TUCSON, Ariz. – University of Arizona baseball middle infielders Scott Kingery and Kevin Newman have been named to a pair of All-America lists, while Bobby Dalbec joins them on the American Baseball Coaches Association All-West Region team. Several other Wildcats recently earned academic accolades from the Pac-12 Conference.

Kingery, the Pac-12 Player of the Year and the 48th overall selection in this week's Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft, continues to rake in postseason honors. The Phoenix, Ariz., native has been named a second-team All-American by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association and a third-team Louisville Slugger All-American as chosen by Collegiate Baseball Newspaper.

Newman, a three-time Pac-12 All-Conference team member and the 19th overall selection in the first round of the draft, has also received two All-American citations. He joins Kingery as a third-team Louisville Slugger All-American, while also earning recognition as a third-team All-American with the NCBWA.

Both Kingery and Newman are joined by sophomore third baseman Bobby Dalbec on the West-ABCA/Rawlings All-Region First Team as announced Wednesday by the American baseball Coaches Association. With their first team status, all three are eligible for ABCA/Rawlings All-America honors.

Last week, the Pac-12 released its All-Academic teams. Kingery and Newman were each named honorable mention selections and were joined by pitcher Xavier Borde, Cody Hamlin, Cody Moffett and Riley Moore.
