FULLERTON, Calif. – Mitchell Berryhill added to his historic season as he was named to the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association All-American Third Team, the organization announced Wednesday.
Berryhill's nomination now makes it 22 consecutive years Cal State Fullerton has boasted at least one all-american. In addition to his all-american nod, he was named to the ABCA/Rawlings All-West Region Second Team.
Berryhill finished the year with a Big West Conference-leading .415 batting average which ranked fifth in the nation and is the fifth highest average in a single season in the history of the program. The Utah native had 27 RBI on the year and 39 runs to go along with a .493 on-base percentage which ranked first in the Big West.
He opened the conference road slate with a bang in the Titans three-game series at Cal Poly. Berryhill had a next to perfect weekend as he went 10-for-12 (.833) with four walks and a hit by pitch to reach base in 15 out of 17 plate appearances.
The senior had at least three hits in every game while also recording a career-high four hits in the second game of the series. Berryhill reached base safely in his final 12 plate appearances. He earned his first Big West Field Player of the Week honor after his performance against the Mustangs.
