Trosclair & Moore Named To All American Teams

TUCSON, Ariz. – For the third straight year, a member of the Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns baseball team has been honored as a preseason All-American as senior second baseman Stefan Trosclair and sophomore relief pitcher Dylan Moore were named to the 2016 Louisville Slugger Preseason All-America teams, Collegiate Baseball announced on Tuesday.

"We have a saying that baseball pays you back for the hard work that you put in," head coach Tony Robichaux said. " Both of these guys came in and have worked hard from day one. It's great when a guy can be honored for their individual achievements. But at the end of the day, I know both of them would trade the in individual honors to see the team win."

Trosclair was listed as a first team All-American, while Moore received third team honors.

A native of Sulphur, La., Trosclair led the Cajuns with 16 home runs and had 15 doubles and 53 RBI in his junior campaign. Trosclair was named an All-American by four publications a year ago including a Louisville Slugger third team nod. The second baseman was instrumental in the Cajuns postseason run as his grand slam in the 12th inning of the Sun Belt Conference Championship lifted the squad to its second tournament title in as many years.

Moore broke the school record for saves as a freshman posting 13 in a team-best 32 appearances. The right-hander went 3-3 on the mound in 2015 with a 1.60 ERA and had 40 strikeouts in 50.2 innings. Moore currently sits just three saves back from tying the school record held by Matt Hicks.

Louisiana opens the 2016 season on Friday, Feb. 19 as the Cajuns host Sam Houston State in a three game series at M.L. "Tigue" Moore Field.
