Headlined by Zach Plesac’s selection as the 2014 Louisville Slugger National Freshman Pitcher of the Year, Collegiate Baseball named its Freshmen All-America Team, which includes Plesac, Alex Call and Jarett Rindfleisch.

Plesac, who was also named to the publication’s All-America Third Team and was the Mid-American Conference Freshman Pitcher of the Year, tallied a 12-2 pitching record with six saves and a 2.11 earned-run average for the Cardinals.  He ranks fourth in the nation in pitching victories and struck out 67 batters in 85.1 innings pitched last season.

Call, a freshman outfielder for Ball State, batted .354 with 15 doubles, one home run and 24 runs-batted-in.  He led the Cardinals in hitting, while ranking second on the team in doubles.

Rindfleisch, the MAC Freshman Player of the Year, was second for Ball State with a .352 batting average and threw out 16 of 32 runners who attempted to steal when he was behind the plate.  He tallied 33 RBI, 44 hits, four HRs and nine doubles in 125 at-bats.

These three players bring the total to 10 Freshmen All-Americans in the history of Ball State baseball.

The trio helped Ball State to a 39-18 overall record and a 22-4 MAC mark plus the MAC Regular-Season Championship, the MAC West Division title and the No. 1 seed in the MAC Tournament.
