McCain named All American

Oklahoma State outfielder Garrett McCain has been selected to the 2017 ABCA/Rawlings All-American First Team.

McCain becomes the 25th different player in OSU baseball history to earn first-team All-America status.

The Cowboys have now had a first-team All-American in each of the last four years as McCain follows pitchers Brendan McCurry (2014), Michael Freeman (2015) and Thomas Hatch (2016).

McCain was also chosen for the Baseball America All-America Second Team, the Perfect Game/Rawlings All-America Second Team and the D1Baseball All-America Third Team.

McCain led the Big 12 with a .388 batting average and is poised to become the first OSU player to lead the conference in hitting since 2008 and just the fourth all time.

McCain also leads the Big 12 in hits (87) and on-base percentage (.491) and ranks in the top five in the league in steals (19), total bases (123), runs (53), slugging percentage (.549) and triples (5).

McCain was a 10th-round selection of the Detroit Tigers in the 2017 Major League Baseball Draft. In three seasons and 130 games at OSU, McCain recorded a .338 batting average to go along with 20 doubles and 62 RBIs, and he is 37-of-40 on stolen base attempts.
