LONG BEACH, Calif. – Senior Josh Frye was selected to Collegiate Baseball’s Louisville Slugger All-American Second Team, which was released on Thursday. The All-America nod comes on the heels of Frye’s First Team All-Big West selection earlier this week.
Frye, a senior pitcher from Long Beach, is the Dirtbags first All-American since Andrew Liebel and Shane Peterson were both included in Collegiate Baseball’s All-American teams in 2008.
Frye had an outstanding season for Long Beach State after jumping into the starting rotation in March. The Dirtbags are a perfect 9-0 when Frye starts on the mound while he owns an undefeated 8-0 record and a 1.51 ERA. He had four shutout starts, including a complete game shutout of UC Santa Barbara. He ranks 22nd in the nation in ERA and 18th in hits per nine innings (6.05).
The 6-7 right-hander was the Dirtbags Saturday starter once he joined the rotation and flourished in the role. He had a streak of 30.2 consecutive scoreless innings, which ranked as the second longest streak in school history.
The Dirtbags will open up the NCAA Tournament tomorrow when they take on North Carolina in Gainesville, Fla. at 10 a.m. (PT).
