Freshmen All-Americans

Collegiate Baseball and Louisville Slugger have issued their Freshmen All-America Team. A number of first-year Big Ten stars have made the squad. Nick O'Shea (Minnesota), Eric Charles (Purdue), AJ Pettersen (Minnesota), Justin Gominsky (Minnesota), Willie Argo (Illinois) and Alex Dickerson (Indiana) were all honored.

Yes, I was disappointed that several names weren't on the list. Penn State's Jordan Steranka and Illinois' Josh Parr would top my list of oversights, but it was good to see a strong representation from the Big Ten.

Argo is also off to a fine start this summer.

I am kind of bummed that Iowa's interim catcher Dallas Burke didn't make the list. He may not have been a starter all season, but he put up some impressive numbers late in the season for the Hawkeyes IMO.
