Three Clemson players were named First or Second-Team All-ACC in when the league announced the selections Monday. Junior outfielder Kyle Parker was the Tigers’ lone First-Team All-ACC selection, while senior second-baseman Mike Freeman and junior outfielder Jeff Schaus were named Second-Team All-ACC. The team was compiled by a vote of the 12 ACC head coaches.
It was the second time Parker was named First-Team All-ACC, as he received that same honor as a freshman in 2008. Parker became the first two-time, First-Team All-ACC player at Clemson since Kris Harvey accomplished the same feat in 2004 and 2005. Schaus was also a First-Team All-ACC selection as a sophomore in 2009.
In 2010, Parker is hitting .373 with 18 homers, 14 doubles, 56 RBIs, 69 runs, a .725 slugging percentage, 47 walks, a .508 on-base percentage, and four steals in 53 games. Schaus is batting .307 with 13 homers, 10 doubles, two triples, an ACC-high 71 RBIs, 58 runs, and six steals in 56 games. Freeman is hitting .323 with seven homers, 19 doubles, one triple, 48 RBIs, 56 runs, and 11 stolen bases along with an outstanding .970 fielding percentage.
