CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Virginia's Joe McCarthy (Fr., Scranton, Pa.) has been named to the first team of the 2013 Baseball America Freshman All-America Team, announced Monday by Baseball America. McCarthy is the fifth Cavalier to be honored as a Baseball America Freshman All-American and the first since Danny Hultzen in 2009.
McCarthy also was honored on the Collegiate Baseball/Louisville Slugger and NCBWA Freshman All-America teams and was tabbed the ACC Freshman of the Year. He was a Second-Team All-ACC selection in 2013.
McCarthy finished third on the team with a .336 batting average and ranked second with a .469 on base percentage. He recorded the highest batting average for a Virginia freshman since Bill Narleski batted .366 in 1984 (minimum 2.0 at bats per game).
