Keaschall Named Second Team All-American

Luke Keaschall has been named a Second Team All American by Collegiate Baseball News, according to an announcement by the organization.

Keaschall earned recognition after being one of the preseason honores by the outlet. He becomes the 132nd member of Sun Devil Baseball to earn All-American status, after Collegiate Baseball News recognized infielder Nate Baez as a third team honoree while outfielder Joe Lampe was named a third team All-American by Perfect Game. 

In his maiden Sun Devil season, Keaschall dazzled with a .353 batting, 18 homers, 25 doubles and 58 RBI. 

He is just the eighth ASU player since 1998 with at least 20 doubles and 10 homers in a single year. In fact, his 25 doubles were fourth-most in the nation during the regular season. His doubles and home runs combined with a triple gave him 44 extra base hits, the most of any player in the Pac-12 for the entire season. 

Keaschall was sixth in the Pac-12 with a .364 average during league play games and paced the Conference of Champions with 13 homers in such contests. His .822 slugging percentage in conference-only games is second in the league while his 34 Pac-12 RBIs are fourth in the conference.

Including his walk off double against UCLA in the final series of the regular season, Keaschall to be the clutch man in the Sun Devil lineup, as he led the team with seven go-ahead hits. 

In four games against Utah Tech and Utah, the second baseman hit .625 (10-for-16) with 11 RBI, eight runs scored, three doubles, three home runs and a pair of stolen bases en route to Pac-12 Player of the Week honors and recognized by Collegiate Baseball News as one of its National Players of the Week.
