SU’s Beall a preseason All-American
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. — Senior designated hitter Nick Beall has been named preseason All-America in selections announced late Tuesday by D3baseball.com.
Beall, a two-time first team All-USA South honoree who was named first team All-South Region by D3baseball.com last season, was named to the 2013 honorable mention team.
This is the fourth straight year that SU has had a baseball player named pre-season All-America. Greg Van Sickler ’11 was named in both 2010 and 2011, Kevin Brashears ’11 was picked in 2011 and Kyle Scallion last season.
Beall hit .421 last season with 12 doubles, one triple and two home runs in 145 at-bats. Beall also drove in 35 runs and was named to the All-Tournament teams at both the USA South and Newport News Regional tournaments.
The white shorts have the SU logo on the left leg with the blue shorts sporting the hornet.
The team will again wear a blue helmet that debuted last spring.
“I am very happy with the way these uniforms turned out,” Kruger said. “They are simple and clean yet identifiable as a Shenandoah uniform.
“We have worked hard to change the culture of our program and these new uniforms are an important symbol of that change.”
SU opens its 2013 season on Feb. 23 at Alvernia.
