TUCSON, Ariz.- Texas A&M senior Blake Stouffer was named to the Louisville Slugger Preseason All-America first team as a second baseman, Collegiate Baseball newspaper announced.
Stouffer, a San Antonio native, was at or near the top of every offensive category for the Aggies last season. A consensus All-America selection and first-team All-Big 12 and all-region pick, Stouffer hit .385 with 12 home runs, 85 RBI and a .668 slugging percentage while swiping 22 bases.
