LEXINGTON -- For the fourth time this year, Kentucky first baseman Ryan Strieby has been recognized as an All-American as the junior was a first-team selection by Baseball America on Tuesday.
It was the second All-America award of the day for the Brier, Wash., native, who joined catcher Sean Coughlin on the Pro-Line Cap/NCBWA All-America team, which was announced earlier on Tuesday.
Strieby was the Southeastern Conference Player of the Year after leading Kentucky to its first league championship in school history. He led the team in batting with a .343 average while blasting 20 home runs and driving in a school record 77.
Strieby led the SEC in doubles (22), RBIs, slugging percentage (.704) and on-base percentage (.473).
Along with the award from Baseball America and the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association, he has also earned All-America honors from Louisville Slugger and the College Baseball Foundation. He was a fourth round pick of the Detroit Tigers in last week's Major League Baseball draft.
