Kade Scivicque named to All-CWS Team

Catcher Kade Scivicque is LSU's only representative on the All-College World Series team.

LSU had an early exit from the College World Series, but one Tiger did receive recognition for his performance in Omaha.

Kade Scivicque is LSU's only representative on the All-CWS team, announced Wednesday after Virginia clinched its first national championship with a 5-3 victory against Vanderbilt. The Cavaliers and Commodores combined to have seven of the 11 members of the All-CWS Team.

Scivicque had multiple hits in all three of LSU's CWS games. He batted .500 (6-for-12) with three RBI and two runs scored. He also threw out three base runners from behind the plate.

Scivicque moved into the three-hole for LSU's second game of the CWS. He contributed two hits and a pair of runs, driving in another, as LSU stayed alive with a 5-3 victory against Cal State-Fullerton.

He finished the season with a team-best .355 batting average, .521 slugging percentage (third on the team), and .398 on-base percentage (second). Scivicque had the fourth-most RBI with 48 and finished second with 21 doubles. He also homered six times.

Scivicque committed only three errors this season for a .994 fielding percentage. He caught 21 of the 36 base runners that attempted to steal on him.

Scivicque was a fourth-round pick by the Detroit Tigers in the MLB Draft. He's also a finalist for the Johnny Bench Award, given to the nation's best catcher.
