Rodon, Turner Named Frosh All-Americans

TUSCON, Ariz. - NC State freshmen Carlos Rodon and Trea Turner were named to the Louisville Slugger's Freshman All-American team, with Rodon capturing National Freshman Pitcher of the Year honors, announced Wednesday by the Collegiate Baseball Newspaper.

Rodon headlines the team by being named Collegiate Baseball's Freshman Pitcher of the Year, the first such distinction in NC State baseball history.

Turner landed on the list at third base after leading the nation in stolen bases, obliterating the NC State single-season record in the process. The Lake Worth, Fla. native also hit .340 with 12 doubles, five homers, two triples, and 41 RBIs in his freshman campaign.

Since 1992, NC State has had nine players make Collegiate Baseball's Freshman All-American team including Rodon and Turner. The only other time the Wolfpack has had multiple Collegiate Baseball Freshman All-Americans on the same team came in 2003 with Joey Devine and Michael Rogers.
