Announced today, junior left-hander Adam Wolf and sophomore first baseman Logan Wyatt received All-American honors from two different publications. Wolf was named to Baseball America’s All-American list, while Wyatt was named to Collegiate Baseball Newspaper’s All-American list. Both players were Third-Team selections, and were their first career All-American honors.
Making his transition from the bullpen to the starting role, Adam Wolf handled the transition extraordinarily well. In 95.2 innings pitched over 15 starts, the junior by way of Milan, Ohio racked up 105 strikeouts to only 26 walks and registered an ERA of 2.26. His strikeout total leads the Cards and is good for 44th in the nation, while his impressive ERA is good for 3rd in the ACC.
Filling some pretty big shoes at the first baseman spot, Logan Wyatt did not disappoint in his second year in the program. The Louisville native quickly established a reputation as an on base machine, walking 59 times (1st in ACC, 5th in nation) to help boost his on base percentage to .487, good for 1st the ACC and 16th in the nation. His 22 doubles (1st in ACC, 16th in nation) are also the most by a Cardinal since Adam Duvall’s 27 in 2010.
Coming up later this week, the duo will help the Cardinal Nine do battle down in Lubbock, TX for the Lubbock Regional hosted by #9 Texas Tech. They’ll open up the weekend against the Kent State Golden Flashes on Friday at 7pm.
