Florida's Logan Shore named Freshman All-American by Baseball America

...we lack good baseball pictures. - Rob Foldy-US PRESSWIRE

This post really only exists because I wanted to call attention to Florida's 2010 freshman class.

Florida pitcher Logan Shore was named to the first team of Baseball America's 2014 Freshman All-American Team on Monday.

Shore's 2.14 ERA was second to Kirby Snead's 1.79 ERA among Florida pitchers in 2014, and his seven wins and 68 strikeouts compiled over 95.2 innings led all Gators in all three categories. Shore's 15 starts were six more than any other Florida pitcher made on the season, as he settled into the Gators' Friday night starter role early in SEC play and never let go of it.

But I'm really only writing this post because of the list of Baseball America first-team Freshman All-Americans in Florida history that Shore joined today:

Year Player
1991 Marc Valdes
1996 Brad Wilkerson
2004 Matt LaPorta
2007 Cole Figueroa
2008 Josh Adams
2009 Preston Tucker
2010 Nolan Fontana
2010 Brian Johnson
2010 Austin Maddox
2010 Hudson Randall
2010 Mike Zunino
2011 Karsten Whitson
2014 Logan Shore

Florida's produced 13 first-team Freshman All-Americans in its history, according to Baseball America — and it had five in 2010. And all of those players played in three College World Series. And all of them were picked in the top seven rounds of the 2012 MLB Draft.

Kevin O'Sullivan is pretty good at recruiting.
