DURHAM, N.C. – Jimmie Sherfy was named to Baseball America's 2012 College All-America second team, the publication announced today.
Oregon’s closer has now totaled four All-American nods from such organizations as the American Baseball Coaches Association, Louisville Slugger and the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association.
The sophomore right-hander set new Oregon single-season and all-time records with 19 saves during 2012 as the Ducks advanced to the Super Regionals and ended the year with a record of 46-19.
His 19 saves rank second in the country and lead the Pac-12, and he ended the year with a 5-3 record and 2.20 ERA. In a staff-leading 36 appearances, Sherfy held opposing batters to a .172 clip.
Sherfy led the Ducks with 93 strikeouts in 61 and 1/3 innings pitched, an average of 13.6 strikeouts for every nine innings pitched.
He was also chosen as one of five finalists for the NCBWA Stopper of the Year award, and was named Pac-12 All-Conference.
The four power conferences are represented fairly evenly on the three Baseball America All-American teams. The Pac-12 leads all conferences with eight All-Americans, followed by the SEC and Big 12 with six apiece, and the ACC with five.
The staff of Baseball America selected the All-America teams after the first weekend of the College World Series.
