White Earns Freshman Honor

West Virginia University redshirt freshman centerfielder Adam White has been named to the Louisville Slugger's 2006 Freshmen All-America team as selected by Collegiate Baseball. White was one of five Big East players named to the team.

White was a pleasant surprise in centerfield for the Mountaineers in 2006 after replacing former three-time all-conference selection Lee Fritz. He batted .368 with six doubles, three triples, one home run and 27 RBI from the ninth spot in the lineup en route to being named to the all-Big East second team outfield. The Phillipsburg, Pa., native set the school single season record with 14 sacrifice hits and also led the Mountaineers on the basepaths with 19 steals in 22 attempts. WVU as a team stole just 18 bases in all of 2005. White was joined by four other Big East players on list. Cincinnati starting pitcher Steve Blevins, outfielder Josh Harrison, Notre Dame closer Kyle Weiland and USF shortstop and Big East rookie of the year Addison Maruszak were all tabbed by Collegiate Baseball.
