Rice two-way standout Joe Savery leads the 2005 Baseball America All-Freshman team as the Freshman of the Year.
The 19-year-old lefthander/first baseman was named the Western Athletic
Conference's player of the year after leading the conference with a .382
batting average at the plate and 129 strikeouts on the mound. His 2.43 ERA
ranked second in the league.
Four first year players from the Big 12 Conference made the team, including
Adrian Alaniz, who earned two wins for Texas in the 2005 College World
Series. Tennessee was the only school with two first-team players; the
battery of catcher J.P. Arencibia and lefthander James Adkins helped lead
the Volunteers to Omaha.
The teams were selected by the staff of Baseball America.
