Hunter Morris named preseason first-team All-American by Baseball America

Baseball season is just around the corner, as evidenced by this press release by Auburn today about Hunter Morris being named a preseason first-team All-American by Baseball America:
AUBURN, Ala. – Hunter Morris was tabbed a preseason First Team All-America choice by Baseball America, the organization announced on Friday.

A junior, Morris heads into the 2010 season with a .318 career batting average having collected 22 doubles and 23 home runs, driving in 82 during his first two seasons at Auburn.

“This is a tremendous honor for Hunter as he has worked extremely hard to improve his overall game,” Auburn head coach John Pawlowski said. “He will play a major part in helping the Tigers get back to postseason play. Hunter has made Auburn baseball proud with this preseason accolade.”
