MUNCIE, Ind. -- Ball State first baseman Billy Wellman and outfielder Kirby Campbell were named to the 2012 Academic All-Mid-American Conference Team for baseball.

The team was selected by a vote of the league's faculty athletic representatives from among a group of nominees that had at least a 3.20 cumulative GPA and participated in at least 50 percent of their team's games for the season. A total of 21 student-athletes were named to the team based on their academic and athletic achievements.

Wellman, a product of Jay County High School in Portland, Ind., has maintained a 3.90 GPA with a major in exercise science. A sophomore last season, he took over the starting role at first base down the stretch and finished second on the team with a .324 batting average and 26 RBI. Wellman started the final 14 MAC contests of the season and hit .373 with 15 RBI against league opponents.

Campbell, a local product from Cowan High School, owns a 3.94 GPA with a major in business administration. As a junior in 2012, he played in 32 games and made 14 starts for the Cardinals, collecting 12 hits, eight runs scored and four RBI. Campbell was perfect on all three of his stolen base attempts.

In addition to the Academic All-MAC honors for Wellman and Campbell, five other Cardinal baseball players were MAC Honor Roll selections. They were Sean Godfrey, Cody Campbell, T.J. Weir, Blake Beemer and Mitch Widau.
